Made in the USA!
BlueSky Designs works with manufacturers in the Midwest–Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa to build its custom parts. We assemble the mount in-house, conducting quality checks and testing each one before it leaves our doors. We work with our vendors to make improvements if issues arise. We value their input and expertise.

We aim to provide a high quality product that lasts.

Sponsors
The Mount’n Mover was made possible through two SBIR projects;

  • NIH SBIR Phase 2 (2005-07) Goodwin (PI) 8/2005-12/2007
    Accessible Mounting and Positioning Technology for People with Disabilities
    This project resulted in a modular mounting system, attaching to wheelchairs or tables, which individuals with limitations in strength, reach, and dexterity can access, and reposition independently.
  • NIDRR SBIR Phase 1 (2003-04) H133S0301 Goodwin (PI) 10/2003-4/2004
    Independently Operable Device Mounting and Positioning Technology for People with Disabilities
    Preliminary feasibility of a modular mounting system, attaching to wheelchairs or tables, which individuals with limitations in strength, reach, and dexterity can access, and reposition independently.
Customer Reviews

“This thing is MAGIC!”  mother of a Mount’n Mover user in her email to us describing their excitement

Sexy. And very helpful!”  David Anderson, when he was using the floor stand-mounted system for his tablet and his eye gaze system for the first time

“I knew a mount on my wheelchair would be helpful, but any that I found were impractical. They were either too unstable to withstand my spasticity, or too awkward to reposition as needed…Within just a couple of days [of the two week trial] I couldn’t imagine being without it.

I began comparing the idea of being without it to being in a manual wheelchair instead of my power chair and my wife completely agreed.
