Fitting the DAESSY Rear Folding Mount - DRFM6
A communication device or laptop computer, when mounted on a wheelchair, must be correctly positioned to make it comfortably accessible to the user while In-use. When a device is mounted on a DAESSY Rear Folding Mount DRFM6 it may be stored in a Folded position behind the backrest.
The Fitting procedure for the DAESSY Rear Folding Mount determines what components are necessary to correctly position the device in both the In-Use and Folded positions.
Standard Mounting Assemblies and Fitting Exceptions
The standard Side Tube length of 22" is suitable for many situations when the device is mounted for direct access.
When the device to be mounted is scanning or head-pointer operated, or when the mount will be installed on a small wheelchair it is essential to follow the fitting procedure as the standard tube dimensions are not likely to be suitable. It may be that the DAESSY Rear Folding Mount is not suitable for these non-standard situations.
The Fitting procedure is important to determine the correct lengths of factory cut stainless steel tube. Tube should not be cut to length during installation.
The ends of the stainless steel tube provided by Daedalus Technologies, Inc. are fully machined and chamfered to minimize sharp edges. Daedalus Technologies, Inc. strongly disapproves of the tube being cut to length by purchasers. Cutting the stainless steel tube by any method produces very sharp and hazardous edges.
Steps in Fitting Procedure:
Fitting the DRFM6 has the following steps
- Selecting a Frame Clamp location
- Measuring and specifying the Frame Clamp size
- Determining the Location for the Rear Folding Adapter
- Determining the Side Tube length and Offset Links required
