Door ramps are an efficient and effective way for wheelchair and scooter users to enter and exit their homes. They help eliminate issues like steps or raised areas, curbs, and other obstructions that could restrict movement.
Ramps come in a wide variety of styles and materials. It is important to select the one best suited to your individual needs as well as the layout of your home.
Threshold ramps offer an easy solution for navigating doorways, raised landings, curbs and other short rises in the home. These wedge-shaped sections of heavy-duty aluminum or rubber sit beneath a doorway or small step to enable wheeled mobility devices like wheelchairs, scooters and walkers to roll across them without difficulty.
101 Mobility offers a comprehensive selection of rubber and aluminum threshold ramps to meet your individual requirements. Our ADA-compliant ramps are robust, easy to install, and portable for portability wherever life takes you.
These lightweight, non-rusting threshold ramps can support a weight of up to 42 stones or 267kg and are perfect for scooters and manual wheelchairs. Featuring an anti-slip grip and front lip that prevents them from digging into the surface they’re placed on, these ramps ensure safe passage when entering and exiting vehicles.
The transition ramp is the ideal solution for anyone needing a smooth transition into doorways or raised landings. Crafted from high-strength aluminum that won’t rust, it features an extruded slipresistant surface for superior traction.
If you need a mobility scooter ramp to easily get over doorways, thresholds or other low objects, a portable option may be your best bet. These ramps typically consist of aluminum and fold up for transportability.
These portable wheelchair ramps come in various lengths and sizes to fit both manual and electric wheelchairs and scooters. Furthermore, their lightweight design makes them convenient to transport and store away when not in use.
The Aerolight Classic portable ramp is an excellent example of this. It can be disassembled into two parts and folded neatly into a suitcase for ease of transport.
This portable ramp can support up to 800 pounds of weight and accommodates both two-axle mobility devices and single-axle wheelchairs. Crafted out of 6061 aerospace aluminum, it weighs less than 20 pounds per foot.
This portable mobility scooter car boot ramp is constructed of lightweight aluminium and folds flat for convenient setup, transport, and storage. It fits vehicles with a height up to 660mm in height.
Modular ramps are engineered to meet a range of mobility device needs. Their non-slip surface makes them ideal for maneuverability and can easily be disassembled or relocated as required.
These steps come with or without handrails and can be weatherproofed to meet a variety of requirements. Not only that, but they’re great for home access – used over thresholds and doorways to provide easy passage.
Ramps can be installed on a variety of surfaces, such as patios, garages and driveways. They come in various lengths to accommodate any slope or incline.
Under ADA standards, wheelchair ramps must have a 1:12 slope–that is, for every inch of rise, there must be 12 inches of ramp.
Ramps are an ideal solution for wheelchair users who require access to their homes or other locations with inclines and slopes. Additionally, ramps can be utilized by individuals to reach their vehicle.
Door ramps can make getting in and out of a vehicle much simpler for mobility scooter users. They are also useful when accessing buildings without stairs available.
Our evaluation of portable wheelchair ramps revealed that no single design satisfied all needs or expectations of wheelchair users or their caregivers. This was due to practical issues such as size, mass, storage requirements, ease of use and handling.
Wheelchair ramps come in a range of styles and configurations, such as track, platform or telescopic channel options. You can pick the option that best meets your budget while also accommodating the individual using a wheelchair.
Our tests of portable ramps included a rig designed to replicate the height of a standard step (Figure 6). Furthermore, we evaluated their secondary function, that is, whether they can be used as an effective means for loading an unoccupied mobility scooter into the boot of a car.
