Dual Arm

The Dual Arm offers the most flexible positioning, and has more reach than the Single Arm.
Consider the Dual Arm if you need greater flexibility to:

  • Use your device in more than one operating position
  • Set a different position for a second device
  • Position something “just so”
  • Move it around other things
  • Position it so the controls are either away from or towards the person

You need a longer arm, so you can:

  • Extend it more than 8” from the side of your chair
  • Extend across midline
  • Mount to the side opposite the joystick, and still position the device on that side
  • Use it for eye gaze
  • Extend it forward and inward

You have limited reach. Less range of motion is required to move it to another operating position.

  • The Hoop unlocks both the Elbow and Shoulder
  • Move the arm laterally, and
  • It will still be within reach

The Single Arm works well for people who don’t need the reach and flexibility of the Dual Arm.

  • Lower profile and more compact, which some people prefer
  • Simpler to operate, because you don’t need to learn to “steer” it
  • Positions the device lower than the Dual Arm
    • unless just the upper arm of the Dual swings over your legs or tray

Limitations and considerations:

  • Fewer lock positions
  • Not as good for multiple operating positions
  • Hoop and paddle rotate away from you as you swing it away

Don’t have it lock away from you if you can’t reach the controls

The Tilt’n Turner is recommended for:

  • Smaller devices that are to be positioned on a post, just in front of the armrest
  • Placing a second device on the top of the post that a Dual or Single Arm is already attached to.
    • enables someone to do two things concurrently (ie, read and use a laptop)
    • Attachment to a table to position a tray or other device at a good operating height.

 

Double Decker with dual arm and simple mount

A Double Decker combines two Mount'n Movers for more accessibility and more options.

  • Multitask - access two things at once
  • Combine any two of your laptop, phone, camera, speech device, and tray
  • Adjust your environment, wherever you are

Here are some examples

Nicole uses a Double Decker

 

  • Simple Mount Small (3.5" x 7" x .250")
  • Simple Mount Large (9" x 11.5" x .375")
  • Simple Mount with Quick Connect

The Simple Mounts offer a simple, strong mount ideal for phones, remotes, iPads, tablets, cameras, eating, writing and reading.

Consider a Simple Mount for the following:

  • Abilty to fold the tray down to the side for storage
  • Add a second device to a Single or Dual arm by building a double-decker system
  • Position item close to the arm rest
  • Cost-effective
  • More robust than commercially available basic mounts
