DAESSY Swing Aside Mount – DSAM4
The DAESSY Swing Aside Mount - DSAM4 consists of two lengths of stainless steel tube joined to form a right angle structure that is supported on the wheelchair by a Frame Clamp Assembly permanently attached to either the left or right side of the wheelchair. The design of this mount allows use on a tilt seat system. The ROP version Frame Clamp Assembly is used to secure the mount to the wheelchair for use at any angle. The rotating joint is limited to be swung away from the user only.
The Frame Clamp Assembly is composed of a Frame Clamp Inner Piece and a Removable Frame Clamp Receiver. The Inner Piece is attached to the wheelchair frame while the Receiver holds the Vertical Tube. A Removable Outer Piece secured around the lower end of the Vertical Tube fits into the Receiver to position the tube and prevent rotation.
The mounted device is attached to a quick release plate, either directly or with use of a specific adapter, and attached to the Horizontal Tube of the mount assembly by means of a Quick Release Base that secures the device and allows for quick detaching of the device from the mount.
The horizontal tube of the Swing Aside Mount can be swung away independently and is well suited to users with the dexterity to reach the Release Cable under the attached device, unlock the mount and swing it away or back in place. The Release Cable retracts a spring-loaded lock pin in the rotating joint. The lock pin holes allow the mount to be swung away and relocked at 90º or 270º away from the user.
The DAESSY Swing Aside Mount can support equipment that is heavy enough to unbalance an unoccupied wheelchair, particularly when the mount is swung aside, and it should be completely removed or the mounted device detached before the wheelchair is vacated.
When used on a manual wheelchair it is advisable to remove the device and mount when the user is transferred from the wheelchair.
