How to Choose a Portable Wheelchair Ramp
Portable wheelchair ramps are available in a range of lengths, from two feet to twelve feet.
ADA guidelines dictate that ramps should extend one foot in length for every inch in rise for maximum safety. While residential ramp applications are not governed by ADA guidelines, 101 Mobility [Wilmington] recommends staying within or close to the recommended rise to run ratio with your portable ramp to avoid unsafe applications and reduce risk of injury.
Generally, portable ramps are only safe for use with up to two steps, depending on the height of the steps.
Ramp Configurations & Weights
Portable ramps from two to ten feet long have weight capacities up to 800 pounds, while twelve foot ramps have weight capacities up to 600 pounds. Many styles can be folded or separated into smaller sections for easy transport, with each section weighing less than 45 pounds. Smaller ramp sections are perfect for fitting easily into a closet or vehicle.
Portable ramps are perfect for individuals who face challenges entering a doorway or accessing a low-rise porch or stoop, and support most wheelchairs, power chairs, and mobility scooters. If you think that you or a loved one are in need of immediate accessibility to your home or office, but are not in need of a large modular ramp, then a portable solution may be the right answer for you.
