The DAESSY Folding Mount - DFM2 and DFM2ROP

Folding Mount DFM2

The DAESSY Folding Mount (DFM2) as the name implies can be folded away from the user. The two tubes of the Mount are connected by a flexible joint and except for this feature it is identical to the Rigid Mount. The flexible joint allows the horizontal tube, with the device attached or removed, to be lifted up to the side until the two tubes are parallel in a straight-up orientation and then rotated down until parallel to the vertical tube alongside the wheelchair. When folded and removed from the wheelchair the Folding Mount forms a more compact structure than the Rigid Mount.(not shown)

Folding Mount ROP Version DFM2ROP

The DAESSY Folding Mount ROP Version DFM2ROP is functionally identical to the standard DAESSY Folding Mount. The ROP Version allows for attachment to Tilting Seat Systems and installation beyond 15° from vertical. The Removable Outer Piece and Receiver that allows the Mount assembly to be ‘locked’ in place replace the standard Outer Piece and Index Clamp and allow the Mount to be quickly removed from the wheelchair. This Mount is non-directional and can be attached to either side of the wheelchair with the same components.
