Permobil Progeo 2.0

Mobility manufacturer Permobil has announced that the Progeo Noir 2.0 carbon fibre active manual wheelchair is available now in the UK.

The Progeo Noir 2.0 combines the benefits of carbon with the manoeuverability of a made-to-measure wheelchair. According to Permobil these two elements together to help to give the user an optimal balanced ride allowing for energy saving throughout the day.

The Progeo Noir 2.0 is regarded as the flagship chair in the range, which was launched by Permobil in November 2021 along with 11 other Progeo manual wheelchairs.

Barry Reeve, UK Sales Representative for Permobil, exclusively told THIIS: “There are a selection of dealers across the country who have purchased demonstrator models and are able to provide assessments with users.

“I’m really excited about the Noir 2.0, as it differs from other carbon fibre wheelchairs on the market.

“The construction of the monocoque carbon fibre frame is so robust, that you are able to use power assist devices with the chair such as the SmartDrive MX2+ , or, a front mounted power trike. It’s the perfect balance between durability and lightweight, as well as offering a sleek design.”

The chair frame can be personalised with a variety of colour options, including grey, red, blue and grey as well as black.

It can also be configured to suit the users requirements in terms of size, and performance preference. These configurations include the following: seat width and depth, seat-to-floor height, front frame angle, centre of gravity, the backrest angle and heigh, the front castor size style, the rear wheel size and style, the wheel locks and the backrest upholstery style.

Barry adds: “Each user is assessed for their needs and the chair is made to order – the dealer will work with the user to understand their requirements.

“Some users are well aware of what they want, whereas some users may need some guidance from the dealers who have extensive experience working with active manual wheelchair users.”

Last year, Permobil acquired Progeo in a move which would not only boost its presence in Italy, but help boost its portfolio of active manual wheelchairs in Europe, which already includes its TiLite range.
