Permobil closes Lifestand division of standing wheelchair business following sales decline

6th June 2018 

Regretfully, Momentum Healthcare no longer have access to the Lifestand range of wheelchairs, due to its rather immediate closure on the 4th June 2018.  We have been assured that all existing orders and product warranties are valid, and we will have access to parts according to agreements.

On the 4th June 2018, Permobil, a specialist in manufacturing rehabilitation power wheelchairs for both children and adults, closed its LifeStand business, a part of the group that produce standing wheelchairs.

At the end of May 2018, Permobil confirmed that all LifeStand operational activity, marketing and sales operations were to cease immediately.

In a statement to dealers, Permobil announced that ‘there has been a long-term decline in sales’, taking the decision after ‘having taken into consideration the financial, economic and technical forecasts’.

Informing dealers that all existing orders and product warranties are valid, Permobil also said that spare part warranties for LifeStand will be honoured according to agreements.
