Quick Overview

The most basic of the DAESSY Wheelchair Mounting Assemblies is the DAESSY Rigid Mount. This mount consists of two lengths of stainless steel connected together by a 90 degree Tube Connector.  This joins the Horizontal and Vertical Tubes of the DAESSY Rigid Mount at a fixed 90º angle and allows for independent angles with respect the offset of the vertical tube. A DAESSY Quick Release Base connects your technology to the kit. The poles can be held securely in three positions - "in use", "egress" and "stowed" via simple colar and pin arrangment, wiht the pin found on the Universal Frame Clamp Outer Piece, thus this mount's name.  The colar (Index Colar or IC1) also sets the vertical tube height.

Details

One of the simplest of the DAESSY Wheelchair Mounting Assemblies is the DAESSY Rigid Mount. It is also excellent at holding and positioning yoru valuable technology reliably, repeatably and with assurance.

This mount consists of two lengths of stainless steel connected together by a 90 degree Tube Connector.  This joins the Horizontal and Vertical Tubes of the DAESSY Rigid Mount at a fixed 90º angle and allows for independent angles with respect the offset of the vertical tube.

This right angle pole structure is supported on the wheelchair by a Frame Clamp Assembly permanently attached to either the left or right side of the wheelchair.

The mount can be lifted slightly until a positioning pin in the Frame Clamp Assembly is cleared and then the poles can rotated away from the wheelchair occupant, positioning it at 90º increments - in use, egress and stowed.

The Frame Clamp Assembly is composed of a Frame Clamp Inner Piece and a Frame Clamp Outer Piece attached to each other. The Inner Piece is clamped to the wheelchair frame while the Outer Piece holds the Vertical Tube.

There are two versions of the Rigid Mount - the Universal Outer Piece version (UFCOP) and the Removable Outer Piece version (ROP) which is better suited for tilting seat wheelchairs.

 

Frame Clamp Outer Piece - notice the little pinStandard Version - Universal Frame Clamp Outer Piece and Index Clamp

An Index Clamp secured around the lower end of the Vertical Tube engages with a positioning pin on the Frame Clamp Outer Piece to position the tube and prevent rotation.

The mounting poles of this Rigid Mount version can be lifted out of the Frame Clamp Outer Piece and removed from the wheelchair leaving only the Frame Clamp assembly attached to the wheelchair frame. Additionally, the mount can lifted enough to disengage the Index Clamp and swung away from the user through 90º or 180º and then lowered to re-engage the Index Clamp in either of these positions.

  

 

 

Index ClampUFCOP Version Benefits:

  • Can be positioned in three different aspects - "in use", "egress" and "stowed" but lifting the vertical pole slightly and allowing the mount's own weight to find one of the three positioning aspects. The UFCOP (pictured right) and the Index Clamp on the vertical pole have a pin and hole respectively, which "find" each other when the pole is lifted slightly and rotated.
  • NOT for use on tilting seat systems

 

Device Attachment

The mounted device is attached to a matched adapter plateor a specific cradle (purchased separately). It is attached to the Horizontal Tube of the mount assembly by means of the DAESSY Quick Release Base system that secures the device and allows for quick detaching of the device from the mount.

 

Notes

The Rigid Mount can support equipment that is heavy enough to unbalance an unoccupied wheelchair when swung out to the side. It is recommended to remove the device and/or mount before the wheelchair is vacated.

The DRM1 Rigid Mount is only suitable for limited Tilt Seat Systems. The vertical tube must not be installed or moved beyond 15° during tilt.
