Microsoft Introduces the Xbox Adaptive Controller
How to Mount the Xbox Adaptive Controller
Three threaded inserts on the underside of the controller allow for attachments, meaning you can mount the controller to a wheelchair, lap board, desk, and more. Our compatible diamond base adapter becomes the starting point for all of the below Xbox Adaptive Controller mounting kits. And when you’re not using the controller, the versatility of the RAM® Mounts system allows you to instead mount a phone or tablet cradle.
RAM® Tough-Claw™ Mount with Double Socket Swivel Arm
Clamp the small RAM® Tough-Claw™ mount to your wheelchair – as well as rails, bars and flat surfaces – to enable use of the Xbox Adaptive Controller. The controller attaches directly to the included RAM® diamond base adapter.
RAM® Body Mount Kit
Easily strap the RAM® universal body mount to your leg, arm or abdomen. The Xbox Adaptive Controller attaches directly to the included RAM® diamond base adapter, allowing gamers to adjust the controller for the most comfortable positioning.
RAM® Wheelchair Seat Track Mount
With the included universal hardware pack, this track mount will attach to most major wheelchair brands that feature a seat track system. It includes a 9″ extension pole connected to a short double socket arm for near-infinite adjustability.
RAM® Wheelchair Arm Track Mount
This track mount also includes a universal hardware pack to attach to most major wheelchair brands that feature an arm track system. The double socket swivel arm allows for a 90-degree tilt to position the controller at the best angle.
