This new floor stand has been built with a small footprint base. The base, designed and manufactured by Mounts and More, is low enough and narrow enough to enable it to go under most footrests and between most wheelchair front wheels. Combined with a short fixed arm, this allows a direct access or switch operated device (under 4kg) to be positioned close enough for most users.
Note: Devices shown in the pictures are for illustration only and are not included with the floor stand. Information on the Grid Pad 12 can be found here.
This model features a fixed 8" straight tube to position a device within reach of the user. With one articulating ball joint at the end of the tube, this arm will support more weight than the Short Arm version but has less adjustability for positioning. The FA8 arm will support devices up to 4kg.
Small Footprint Base
The base measures 20" long by 15" wide (51cm by 38cm) with a height of 3.125" (8cm) and has been designed to fit under the foot rests and between the wheels of most wheelchairs. This compact base size not only takes up less floor space when in use than traditional floor stands but is also easier to store, with an inbuilt hand hold making it easy to carry with the post removed. With safety in mind, the locking wheels are red and the wheel support brackets have a clear anodised finish for visibility.
Upright Post: Height Adjustment built in, option for Removable Adaptor or Fixed Post
This floor stand includes a Daessy Short Rolling Mount Post which gives height adjustment from 29" to 47" (79cm to 108cm). The floor stand is supplied as standard with a releasable adaptor for connecting the upright post to the base, this new design enabling the post to be securely attached or removed in a matter of seconds (see picture below). If the removable adaptor is not required, a fixed post option is available with the upright post bolted to the base.
Carry Bags Available
A new carry bag has been custom designed for the Mini Floor Stand Base. In combination with a mount carry bag for the upright post, these will protect the floor stand during transport or in storage. The pair of bags also make transport simple, particularly useful if the mount will be used in more than one location or taken out for assessments. Note: The FA8 arm needs removing from the upright post on this model to fit into the carry bag.
