Details

The Mini Swing Aside Mount allows for the horizontal tube of the mount kit to swing out and away from the wheelchair occupant.

The Swing Aside Tube Joint that connects the two mount tubes performs three functions that all directly relate to how the "swing aside" action occurs, depending on what your needs are.  When not needed on the wheelchair, the kit is easily removed by the quick and easy Removable Frame Clamp assembly by turning a lock and removing the poles - no tools required after installation!

The mount is non-directional and may be installed on either side of the wheelchair.

The Frame Clamp Assembly is composed of a Frame Clamp Inner Piece and a Removable Frame Clamp Receiver. The Frame Clamp Inner Piece is clamped or bolted to the wheelchair frame while the Receiver holds the Vertical Tube.

An AAC device or iPad can be attached to the mount using an adapter plate, tray or a case specific to that device (not included with the kit, ordered separately). This adapter is attached to the Horizontal Tube of the mount assembly by means of the Quick Release Base (mini) that comes with your Mini Mount.  It is then secures the device and allows for quick detaching of the device from the mount when needed.

The complete mount can be lifted out of the Frame Clamp Receiver and removed from the wheelchair leaving only the Frame Clamp Assembly attached to the wheelchair frame. Additionally, the mount can be folded at the tube connector so that the tubes become side by side, allowing for quick chair transfers or for a more compact mouint when no attached.

 

The Swing Aside Action

This mount is very similar to the DAESSY Mini Rigid Mount or DAESSY Mini Folding Mount where the horizontal tube positions the mounted technology at right-angles to the vertical tube.  All these mounts do that by the Tube Joint they came with however they all differ in what that tube joint offers above just connecting the tubes.

In this case, the Mini Swing-Aside Tube Joint allows for secure rotation of the horizontal tube around the axis of the vertical tube and offers seven discrete positions with three functionalities:

  • The In-use Position - (generally across the front of the wheelchair occupant) – the rotation of the joint will not go past this point when aligned for Left or Right side use
  • Stop-points in 45 degrees increments swung out and away from the wheelchair occupant – these points have “stopping tension” but can be by-passed with a forceful push. Increase the tension by tightening the locking collar
  • The Stowed Position - The final Stop-point is 270 degrees from the In-use position.
  • By sliding holding down the Locking Collar down, the horizontal tube is free to swing anywhere between the In-use position and the final Stop-point. As long as the Locking Collar is pulled down, the tube can be swung with freedom.
  • At any of the Stop-points, the Mini Swing-Aside Tube Joint can be locked in place by screwing the Locking Collar downwards.

The Swing Aside Tube Joint has not necessarily been designed with "user actuation" in mind, moreover it offers convenience for repositon the mounted device in situations where it may be momentarily not required. It then brings it back to the exact "In Use" position each and every time.

Option - Quick Release Base Upgrade

  • Upgrade the included standard Quick Release Base to an Articulating Quick Release Base - highly recommended for Eye-Gaze systems
  • Articulating Quick Release Bases allow device positioning independently of the mount kit's poles, fine tuning at the attachment point.
  • Choose from Large or Small face
  • Choose from no handles (allen key adjustemnt only), one quick handle or two quick handles

Caution

The M-Series by DAESSY is a smaller, lightweight mount solution which may not be suitable for larger devices exceeding 10lbs or eye camera systems that require very tall setups.

When needing to support larger devices or requiring a taller setup refer to the DAESSY Swing Aside Mount (DSAM4).

The size and shape of the required Frame Clamp Inner Piece must be specified with the order of a standard mount. The Frame Clamps section provides comprehensive information on DAESSY Frame Clamp options. When no specification is made for a particular Frame Clamp Inner Piece the UFC1000IP 1" standard is provided.

In addition to the standard and variation parts an adapter plate or device holder is necessary to complete the mount. The section Device Adapters and Holders provides comprehensive information.
