This course will provide an overview of mounting systems used to secure speech generating devices, notebooks and tablets to wheelchair frames. These systems mount a device for visual regard, access, safety from theft and protection from falling. We will review system components and mounting guidelines. Speech language pathologists need to be familiar with mounting so that this equipment can be ordered with devices used for communication to support the best outcome for the client.
