September 10 - Columbia Basin ASQ Site Visit/Tour at Permobil in Pasco WA

Permobil team members take a personal approach to wheelchairs and seating systems.  This is a bold statement that speaks to the history of their companies and to their combined strength in the complex rehabilitation industry.  It means every product they create is inspired by the real lives of people with disabilities.  It means each team member strives every day to solve the challenges of mobility, comfort and safety - challenges their customers face every day.  And it means that no matter what customers are striving for, they are there to support them, using the latest technologies and their own ingenuity.  Why?  Because they believe everyone has the right to the same standards, and that what a person is capable of should never be a question of ability.

Permobil Manual Products has a focus on creating an “avalanche” of new products that will provide users with the absolute best experience possible.  They are working on new supply chain strategies, entirely new product offerings, product updates, and improving interaction with third-party accessories and devices.  This has required rapid development in their quality and regulatory processes.  Not only do they focus on product quality, but they also have to ensure fulfillment of all legal requirements for the manufacture of medical devices.  They are currently pursuing ISO13485 certification (QMS for Medical Devices).  Their quality system is governed under 21 CFR 820 by the FDA along with various other governmental standards throughout the world.
