Ramps for wheelchairs are essential for access and mobility; they allow wheelchair users and scooter users to get in and out of buildings and various other areas with ease. They are available in a wide variety of designs and are used in places where height differences need to be compensated. Ramps are ideal when placing a wheelchair in a vehicle, or negotiating steps and curbs.
This device makes it easier for wheelchair users to get around with more ease and independence. It cannot be overstated as it is an absolute necessity when it comes to wheelchair mobility.
There are threshold ramps, sometimes referred to as door wheelchair
ramps that can be fitted to provide the appropriate slope for a smoother
and safer transition through a doorway. Ramps for wheelchairs are
available in various sizes and designs to suit different purposes and
typically fall in one of three categories; permanent, portable,
temporary or semi-permanent.
Permanent models are usually made from
concrete, and the portable and temporary or semi-permanent are usually
made from aluminum.
Portable Wheelchair Ramp
Most portable models are designed for quick and easy use with scooters and wheelchairs and serve as an alternative when a permanent one is not available or feasible. They are durable and vary in size and design to meet different needs and many of them can be folded for space saving and easy storage.
Wheelchair ramps for the home often include several to place in front of doors. These are made for indoor and outdoor use and are designed for doorways, sliding glass doors, and other raised areas. These models are usually made from aluminum or rubber. Some can be trimmed in height or width as needed or combined if greater height is necessary.
Wheelchair Ramps for the home usually include a pathway ramp. These come with rail or without rail and are designed for use with scooters, wheelchairs, and walkers. They can be in the form of a portable wheelchair ramp, temporary or semi-permanent models.
