Daessy mounts can be fitted to most wheelchairs. We have a wide range of clamps in different sizes and shapes to fit most wheelchair makes & models. Because of their design there can be limitations with some wheelchairs on which style of mount is suitable. If you let us know the make and model of your wheelchair we can advise you appropriately.
Unfortunately there are some wheelchairs that it is just not possible to attach a mount to, sometimes for safety reasons. If we consider the wheelchair to be unsuitable we will always say so. Safety is a priority.
In these cases we can offer a floor standing mount (rolling mount), where the chair can go right up to the mount. Or possibly a deskmount may be an option.
In most cases we would not recommend this in view of safety issues. It might be possible with some larger and heavier frames. If you are thinking about a mount in these situations please contact us so we can talk through in detail with you.
This is not something we do as a general rule. We have experience of mounting onto many wheelchair makes & models and with digital photographs by email we can usually address any specific situation. If we did come out to do an assessment there would be a charge in line with our fitting fee.
You may not need a new mount but you will need a mounting plate on the back of the new device (it may be supplied with one). Depending on the styles of the old & new wheelchairs you may not need to buy a full replacement mount, it may be possible to just replace some of the components particularly the frame clamp. Email us with a photograph and details of the new wheelchair and send us photographs of the mounting components you have. We can then advise you on how to proceed.
Probably not. All parts of our mounts can be purchased separately. If you are unsure about what you need please send us a photograph of the parts you still have and we can tell you what new components you will need.
In most cases we can also supply replacements for lost screws/bolts/pinch clamps/swivel clamps etc so it may not be necessary to buy a full replacement component.
We are happy to come out and do a training session for an assessment centre or similar organisation. There is no charge for this (unless overnight accommodation is required in which case we may ask for a contribution to those costs). We prefer to do a training session for a small group of 5-10 people.
Yes, assessment kits are not shown on our website but we can put together a kit with different mounts and extra frame clamps, tubes etc. Some assessment centres supply the clients from the kit and order replacement components from us to restock. If you are interested in a kit please contact us and we can put together a quotation for what will best suit your needs.
