P-Compact FWD

FWD power standing wheelchair with backrest and legrest biocompensation and standing retroverticalization.

The P-Compact FWD uses the "retroverticalization" patent.

Designed down to the smallest detail, it takes up less space when standing than when sitting (identical to the natural position) while maintaining excellent stability. For example, retroverticalization allows the use of a lift where other chairs cannot enter.

The ergonomic comfort of "biocompensation

By combining “biocompensation” and “retroverticalization”, the “P-Compact” belongs to the most innovative generation of standing chairs.

The “biocompensation” of the backrest and the leg rest means that their elongation is progressive and proportional to the movements of the body when changing position, in particular when moving from sitting to standing and vice versa. This ensures that the backrest glides smoothly and comfortably over the backrest. No pressure on the skin and no stretched clothing.

Wheelchair common points
P-Compact FWD is traction.

Like all PowerStand wheelchairs, the P-Compact FWD in traction uses an articulated spreader bar which smooths out the irregularities of the ground and provides unequaled rolling comfort.

Its latest generation Dynamic LinX A400 electronics allows many additions, immediately or later :
  • remote control or integrated in the tablet,
  • attendant control unit,
  • occipital remote,
  • chin control,
  • IR remote…
Its two powerful 350 watt AMT SCHMID German quality motors ensure its traction. Its 70 A lithium battery provides a range of more than 40 km as well as a number of charge cycles three greater than traditional gel batteries for a weight reduced by half. Its high beam and turn signals allow safe night travel Inside, its reduced width allows it to pass easily through doorways. It has an electric legrest as standard, but its huge strong point is undoubtedly the permanent and simultaneous biometric adjustment of the backrest and the leg. Thus, no more shearing in the lower back and upper shoulders that move the clothes when changing position.

PECTORAL ARMREST

at a constant angle, whatever the inclination of the backrest, the armrest (with or without tablet) remains stable and horizontal. 4 integrated functions: comfort armrest, pectoral support, support for the bust in extension, safety in standing.

1 of 13

ANTI-TIP WHEEL:

retracted in the seated position in order to reduce the length of the chair, they come automatically to the ground when standing up in order to ensure safety and front stability.

HEAD-SUPPORT:

with ergonomic pad adjustment on 3 axes in height, depth and spacing.

3 of 13

TIE-DOWN :

secures the wheelchair during transport in a converted vehicle. Note: no passenger should be seated in the wheelchair when travelling.

BACKREST:

choice of fabric or modular backrest with Physipro cover and side support pads.

KNEE PAD:

adjustable along 3 axes (height – spacing – depth) to adapt to everyone’s knee.
with integrated anti-decubitus pad for better comfort.

REMOTE CONTROL :

the functions of movement, verticalization, inclination of the backrest, elevation of the leg, the speed variator, the indicators, the main beams and the horn are grouped together in the joystick manipulator.

7 of 13

LEGREST :

bio-compensated offering better comfort
for verticalization.

With calf support pad which contributes to seating comfort.

8 of 13

FOOTREST :

Choice of mono or bi-pallets individually adjustable.

Aluminum so it won’t rust.

Updated to allow water and debris to pass.

Can be lifted to facilitate transfers and adjustable in inclination for foot comfort.

Relevable pour faciliter les transferts et ajustable en inclinaison pour le confort du pied.

REAR ROCKING LEVER :

Essential element of the articulated frame,
the roking lever at the rear reduces uneven ground when driving
thus making driving exceptionally comfortable.
It greatly facilitates the crossing of obstacles such as curbs.
It locks automatically when standing.

10 of 13

SWING AWAY : 

retracts laterally in order to approach the tables as closely as possible.

Available right or left.

11 of 13

CLOTHE GUARD :

detachable to facilitate transfers, it avoids soiling of clothing when rolling and helps to position the legs correctly.

RETRO-STANDING:

in order to get as close as possible to the natural standing position, the flared shape of the frame associated with the kinematics of the P-Compact wheelchair allows “Retro-sanding”.

That is to say, a smaller footprint in a standing position than in a seated position with maximum stability.

FAQ

During a traditional verticalization, the verticalization device gradually lifts the patient to stand on the pallet rest located at the front of the chair. It follows a lengthening of the chair and a transfer of weight making the overall cumbersome and driving less easy.
The “retro-verticalization” is instead to refocus the patient inside the frame of the chair during verticalization. Thus the pallet rest retracting in the chair during retroverticalisation, the length of the chair decreases in standing position relative to the sitting position.
This is particularly useful in confined spaces such as elevators. This better distribution of the weights gives a better stability allows a ride in standing with confidence.
The “retro-verticalization” is ideal for indoor use.

Stand benefits health, independence and overall well-being.​

We reach a position close to nature, for a better balance and harmony.

Our wheelchairs are part of the generation of the most innovative verticalizers. They are of interest to all persons who, as a result of an accident or illness, are forced into a sitting position. They allow to find the most natural position: the standing position. An indispensable gesture for a better health and a transformed life. No more constraint to verticalize outside, in a specialized institution.

It is at home that it can be done now, several times a day, at its convenience and in complete independence, without the assistance of a third party. After the astonishment of seeing its environment grow, we rediscover the joy of a multitude of activities in “standing” station. Say hello to a friend, chat with someone right in the eye or look away, reach a shelf a little high, work, tinker, cook, … so many things impossible in a sitting position that become natural and accessible.

Health benefits

Clinical evaluations show that verticalization is beneficial to health. The optimization of these benefits is obtained by the repeated alternation of relatively brief periods of the “sit-stand-sit” position.
