For a person who depends on a wheelchair or is not able to go up and down steps, a ramp is a useful modification that eliminates mobility barriers.
Professional installation is vital to ensure the proper grade, as well as the attachment of the ramp. Often homemade ramps are much too steep, have not been appropriately attached, or are not sturdy. This leads to accidents and injuries.
Benefits of Adding Ramps
Adding ramps can make a significant difference in the quality of life for a person with mobility issues. In many cases, ramps are the difference between a life spent inside a home versus a life of activity and mobility.
Ramps in the shower also positively impact the lives of those who struggle to get in and out of a shower or tub. Being able to wheel up to a shower seat is safe and convenient.
Ramps can be exceptionally helpful in a number of different areas of your home. These include:
- A shower ramp for disabled or elderly persons dramatically reduces the risk of falling
- Ramps to allow access to alfresco areas
- Step ramps for disabled or elderly persons to gain access into or out of the home
- Uneven areas of the home where one or two steps separate rooms
