The DAESSY Rigid Mount - DRM1 and DRM1ROP
The DAESSY Rigid Mount (DRM1) provides a simple but highly adaptable and adjustable support structure for Mounting laptop computers or communication devices on wheelchairs. The Mount consists of two lengths of tube Rigidly connected to form a right angle structure. The Mounted device is attached to a horizontal tube crossing the wheelchair and supported by a vertical tube in a clamp that is permanently attached to the wheelchair. Both left or right-hand Mounting are possible and the Mount can be precisely positioned for accessibility by the user. The device may be quickly detached from the Mount, and to allow unimpeded access to the user the Mount may be lifted up completely out of the frame clamp or it may slightly lifted and swung to the side. All common wheelchair frame tube sizes, shapes and orientations can be accommodated. Variations can be made in the length and shape of the tubes, and in the other parts, to adapt the Rigid Mount to any wheelchair.
The Rigid Mount ROP Version is similar to the standard Rigid Mount, but is connected to the wheelchair with a Removable Frame Clamp Assembly. The Removable Outer Piece and Receiver (ROP & RFCR) that allow the Mount assembly to be locked in place replace the standard Outer Piece and Index Clamp (UFCOP & IC1). The ROP Version allows for attachment to Tilting Seat Systems and installation beyond 15° from vertical. Additionally the mount can 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.
Bent-tube Rigid Mount DBTRM1The Bent-tube Rigid Mount replaces the separate Horizontal and Vertical Tubes held in a TC90 tube clamp with a single right-angle bent tube. This is a simple mount suitable for smaller wheelchairs.
