Wheelchairs help people with mobility impairments keep their independence. These days wheelchairs are manufactured to have a small turning radius and are able to navigate tight spaces without needing to be pushed. Wheelchairs are typically unable to travel over uneven surfaces safely. Many wheelchair users fall and sustain injuries while trying to navigate an uneven surface on their wheelchairs.
Wheelchair ramps are designed to address this problem. A wheelchair ramp is an inclined surface that allows wheelchair users to easily and safely access different parts of the property and navigate between areas of different heights.
Wheelchair ramps can be installed both inside and outside homes, businesses, or other properties. In some situations, they can be a suitable alternative to a stairlift for wheelchair users. There are a wide variety of types of wheelchair ramps. When buying a wheelchair ramp, some of the most important things to consider are its capacity and construction.
