Portable ramps are an essential tool for people with mobility issues. They provide a quick and immediate ramp solution to improve accessibility, regain independence, and prevent falls. Here are some benefits of portable ramps:
- Increased Mobility: A ramp improves your ability to get in and out of your home and out into the community. Whether you require a wheelchair or walker to move around or simply have reduced mobility, you’ll be able to get in and out of your home without placing unnecessary strain on your body. By providing a more even surface, portable ramps make it easy for wheeled mobility to roll over ledges and steps to enable you to continue living as you were, just with greater ease.
- Portability: Investing in a portable ramp means you can take it wherever you go, allowing you to make any room or building easily accessible for wheeled mobility and those with reduced mobility. Portable ramps like the Ramp It Up Bridge / Hinged Ramp Ramp and Ramp It Up 4 Foot Multi-Fold Wheelchair Ramp are ideal for converting almost any step or curb into a ramp accessible for wheelchairs and other wheeled mobility. Since these are foldable disability ramps, they’re designed to be travelled with to help you get back out into your community.
- Regain Independence: Portable ramps make it easy to navigate your home; inside and out. A ramp like the Ramp It Up Rubber Threshold Ramp, although compact enough to be portable, can provide a more permanent ramp solution for lips in doorways which means in most cases, you can continue to manoeuvre around your home without the assistance of a carer or loved one.
- Prevent Falls: Ledges, steps and lips are a common tripping hazard. In the home, these hazards are easier to remove or mask with ramp solutions like the Ramp It Up Rubber Threshold Ramp, or perhaps some more permanent ramp solutions like a Ramp It Up aluminium adjustable threshold wheelchair access ramp. But, when it comes to the wider community, you have little control over or awareness of the number of tripping hazards in the vicinity. That’s why portable ramps can help reduce the number of tripping hazards, even when you’re out in public. By evening out these common hazards like curbs, steps to a building, etc. These ramps can prevent serious accidents like slips, trips and falls.
