Safety Tips

Be sure that you lock the brakes before and after every use.

Permobil wheelchairs are designed to maximize safety output by including features that protect the owner like automatic brakes and more. Be sure that when you purchase a power wheelchair, that it comes with standard safety locking mechanisms Ė especially when an elderly individual is manning the joystick.

Keep Children Away

The curiosity of children have them playing around with the wheelchair, thinking itís a ride. Itís crucial that you keep them away as they can seriously injure themselves and possibly irreversibly damage the wheelchair. Instruct them to never touch the wheelchair unless they are asked to.
