Mount of the Month: Wheelchair Mounts for Seat and Armrest TracksBy Bryden McGrath
March 1, 2019
As RAM® Mounts continues its commitment to accessibility mounting solutions, a range of just-released wheelchair seat and armrest track kits is an obvious choice for our latest mount of the month feature.
Several of these wheelchair mounting kits take advantage of the new B size universal wheelchair ball base (pictured right). Like its C size counterpart, this diamond-shaped ball base attaches to nearly any wheelchair track system. While kits are available with both phone and tablet holders, you can also choose a mounting kit without a holder – allowing you to customize your setup further and choose a compatible holder for your specific device.
