The user has a Recaro seat on his electric wheelchair (Permobil).
The Recaro seat has the following functions:
– electrically adjustable lumbar support and side support
– electrically adjustable height
– heat and ventilation in the seat
These functions are controlled by buttons located on the side of the seat (Recaro standard), see photo 2.
The Permobil armrests are attached with fasteners on the Recaro seat.
The armrest has several built-in touch controls for functions such as anchoring the wheelchair in the car. The user operates these controls with his elbow, see photo 4.
The seat is also equipped with an electrical outlet that can be used for purposes such as charging a mobile phone, see photo 5.
The user is extremely satisfied with the Recaro seat and finds it very comfortable. He has never developed any ulcers from sitting on this seat. The ventilation keeps him dry.
