Permobil Australia is a nation wide provider of innovative, quality, and complex assistive technology solutions.
Our Story Began In a Basement
It all started 50 years ago when Per Uddén, a Swedish doctor – driven by a tremendous passion to find new solutions to the problems he encountered in his work as a doctor- teamed up with engineer Bert Engman and together they built the first power wheelchair. Did they had any skills or experience in constructing electric vehicles? Not at all, however, with the help of telephone lessons in mechanics, electronics and endless creativity, they wrote the first chapter in the saga of Permobil. The creativity, curiosity and humanitarian outlook that characterised Per Uddén and his work created the foundation that Permobil rests on today in more than 30 countries around the world.
It took a few years to bring the chairs along with the skills and knowledge to Australia, but with the foundation of Permobil Australia in 2010, a very exciting journey has begun.
Fast forward a few years and today we are very proud to be the supplier of many innovative, world class products that help improve the quality of life of thousands of Australians. With our leading brands: Permobil, TiLite, ROHO, Bodypoint, SmartDrive, FreeWheel and DreamLine. Permobil Australia is on a very exciting journey to become Australia`s leading supplier of innovative advanced rehabilitation solutions for people with limited mobility.
