 ACC534 Phones and Tablet Mount Systems for Wheelchairs 

How do you use these accessories?

Phones and Tablet Mount Systems are assembled on your wheelchair, sometimes based on the recommendations of your occupational therapist or accessibility consultant. Once the mount system is installed, a phone or tablet can be secured to the mount so you can start using it.

Mount Systems are usually assembled from different parts, including phone and tablet grips or cradles, supporting arms or goosenecks, and clamps and other elements that secure the mount to the wheelchair. The combination of those elements will determine the right system for you; therefore we recommend consulting with an expert before attempting to purchase any of those elements.
