Mounting Assessments

BCAS - Mounting Assessments

As communication is an essential part of our day to day lives, and takes place in a diverse range of environments, a mounting system allows a communication aid to be accessible whenever needed. In light of this the AAC West offers a mounting assessment service.

The following are examples of where aids might be mounted.

  • To a wheelchair
  • On a table
  • To a rolling/static floor mount for access whilst in bed or sitting in an armchair

Mounting assessments are completed as part of a Communication Aid Assessment. 

The Communication Aid Centre will also carry out a comprehensive risk assessment using the Wheelchair Risk Assessment Mounting Procedure (WRAMP) as part of the assessment.
