Q: What are the benefits of a Front Wheel Drive wheelchair?
A: The bigger front drive wheel will hit any obstacle first instead of a smaller castor wheel. A larger wheel with drive power with overcome an obstacle easier.

Q: What is ESP?
A: ESP (Enhanced Steering Performance) is technology designed by Permobil to dampen the “fishtail” effect sometimes experienced with a Front Wheel Drive at speeds. ESP gives you speed and freedom of movement.

Q: Why would I need Anterior Tilt?
A: The F5 Corpus has a seat lift of 14″ improving functional reach and transfers (12″ on the F3). But many functional tasks are limited as the chair must be positioned sideways. Anterior Tilt with Seat Elevation allows you to face your objectives face on as well as a variety of transfer options.
Q: Why would I need Programmable Anterior Tilt?
A: You can program your Anterior Tilt up to 30 or 45 degrees. So one press of a button and your seating system moves to a pre-programmed seat tilt position.
