DAESSY Mounting System
Frame Clamps and Bolt-on Adapters for Wheelchair Mounting
All DAESSY mounts are attached to the wheelchair with a collection of components called the Frame Clamp Assembly. A Frame Clamp Assembly consists of an Inner Piece that bolts to the wheelchair frame in a suitable location, an Outer Piece that supports the Vertical Tube of the mount and, if necessary, additional Offset Links and Spacers to position the mount correctly and avoid obstructions with other wheelchair fittings.
Frame Clamp Inner Pieces are available in a variety of sizes and shapes to suit the tubing of many styles of wheelchairs. When no tubing is available it may be possible to use Bolt-on Adapter to bolt to another location of the seat frame.
The style of the Frame Clamp Outer Piece is determined by the choice of mounting assembly. Frame Clamp Outer Pieces fall into three general categories: Standard, Rear Folding, and ROP.
Frame Clamp components are connected together with Swivel Clamps. The Swivel Clamp allows the components to be connected firmly to each other in any orientation. Circular grooves are machined into the matching faces of Frame Clamp components.
The term inner is used to refer to a direction closer towards the wheelchair, while the term outer is used to refer to a direction farther away from the wheelchair.
Although the most obvious application of DAESSY mounts is to wheelchairs, Frame Clamps can be affixed to any sturdy support structure such as a bed-frame or table leg.
