Temporary Wheelchair Ramps

Temporary wheelchair ramps offer convenience and can be easily moved when needed. They allow wheelchair users to move around with less worry knowing they may move the ramp with them. These  can be folding models, threshold or of another type and are commonly used for the home.

They’re also referred to as temporary mainly because of their portability feature as oppose to a ramp made from concrete.  Those have to be built and are considered permanent.

Use an Incline Chart To Find The Ramp Length You Need

Different Types

Temporary mobility ramps are often made out of aluminum and are usually lightweight. They come in different sizes and styles to suit various needs. Some of them can fold for convenience and easy travel and others cannot.

The convenience and ease these devices offer cannot be overstated.  Instant access and mobility for those who would not be able to move around freely otherwise is well appreciated.

There are also roll ramp models. These are also portable but instead of folding, they can be rolled up like a sleeping bag and easily carried or stored when not in use or for easy travel.

The aluminum temporary models that have rails are sometimes referred to as modular and are usually not foldable.  They can be used as portable access ramps or for light commercial use. The threshold type is considered temporary and is designed to fill the gap between a doorway and the floor and allows easier doorway transition.

The various  models offer both convenience and portability, making traveling a bit easier and more appealing so that users can feel more comfortable and confident in engaging in more activities knowing they can move about with more ease.

Many of the models can be used for both wheelchairs and scooters. With any wheelchair ramp, the length must be adequate to provide the proper slope for the elevation difference you are addressing. Proper set up is essential for handicapped wheelchair access.

When it comes to purchasing these devices, it is crucial that you properly measure the elevation in order to obtain the correct length for the space.  It is advisable to use an incline chart to assist you with this process.
