Permobil launches consumer app

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

LEBANON, Tenn. – Permobil has launched the My Permobil consumer app as part of its Permobil Connect platform. The free app provides enhanced performance and usage data to help consumers get the most out of their connected wheelchairs. “In a world where everything is connected, it just makes sense for our wheelchairs to be, as well,” said Larry Jackson, president of Permobil Americas. “Our consumers want to be able to live their lives and not worry about things like battery levels, actuators or mechanical issues.” With the app, users can view data on everything from battery charge and status level to travel distance and seat function. Service technicians already use the Permobil Connect platform to perform remote diagnostics, allowing them to potentially diagnose an issue before it even occurs.
