Tuesday, July 3, 2018

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Permobil Foundation and National Seating & Mobility teamed up with Lain’s parents to get him in a new Permobil wheelchair in time for his 17th birthday and his Junior Prom. The chair, a Permobil F5 Corpus VS, features a vertical stander, allowing Lain to dance at the prom. “I will say, I have held it together all of this time, but when I saw him standing with his friends for the first time, I became very emotional,” said Lain’s mom. “He was at their height and smiling from ear to ear. I am beyond excited for all this has done for Lain and our family.” The icing on the cake: Lain and his date were named Prince and Princess of the prom. The Permobil Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Permobil.
