Wheelchair and scooter ramps are an essential accessory for users who still live in their homes. Alterations to home layout can be costly, but wheelchair and scooter ramps offer a portable and flexible method to navigate home properties.
Wheelchair and scooter ramps are available to aid in crossing thresholds, navigating stairs, and getting in or out of the home. These ramps are highly durable and are usually constructed with a lightweight design, making them easier to move from place to place in the home. Many include stripping designed to offer better grip to wheels as the device drives up an incline. Additionally, many wheelchair and scooter ramps are designed with perforations on the driving surface, to filter water away and increase traction.
Varieties include portable, semi-permanent, and permanent units. There are ramps that are specifically designed for entry into a vehicle as well. Sometimes these ramps can be used to drive a scooter into a van after the patient has been seated in the vehicle.
Wheelchair and scooter ramps help to enhance patient safety and make life easier for users. They can also be a great assistance to caregivers who assist users in their daily needs. Overall, wheelchair and scooter ramps should be a priority on a user’s accessory list, should they remain in their homes.
