Portable Wheelchair Ramps
People with a range of mobility problems who daily require the use of wheelchairs typically have a need for portable wheelchair ramps to improve their independence and freedom of movement around multiple environments. Portable wheelchair ramps are designed to enhance mobility in and around the home, place of work, and the local community. The portable wheelchair ramps in our inventory are convenient and easy to use, often without the assistance of a caregiver. When wheelchair users take long journeys away from their homes, they usually have to transport a wheelchair in a motor vehicle and will often need the assistance of a portable wheelchair ramp to load their wheelchairs inside. Portable wheelchair ramps also become necessary once they reach their destination.
Portable wheelchair ramps offer loading and unloading convenience unmatched in alternative methods. Several alternative methods by which a wheelchair can be loaded into a vehicle include using a tail lift, a hoist, a fold-down wheelchair ramp, or a portable wheelchair ramp. Tail lifts, hoists, and fold-down ramps require expensive vehicle adaptations and can’t be installed in sedans or smaller vehicles. Portable wheelchair ramps offer a cost-effective solution to this problem, with the additional advantage that they can be used to access steps, walkways, buildings, and other transportation systems. Portable wheelchair ramps are also commonly used as temporary measures until permanent ramps, constructed of wood, concrete, or metal, can be installed and fitted.
Portable wheelchair ramps are available in a wide range of designs, materials, and configurations. Accordingly, the needs of wheelchair users and caregivers should therefore be accommodated. If the needs of everyone involved are clearly identified and the ramps are selected with the appropriate combination of features, then both wheelchair user and caregiver will be properly equipped.
