Portable Ramps Make Vacations More Accessible

December 22, 2012

Portable wheelchair ramps can extend the accessibility of power chairs within different situations and in various locations. Travel ramps (sometimes referred to as folding ramps, or suitcase ramps) can be especially useful on vacation. For even though many destinations may have permanently-installed ramps on premises, not all vacation spots are fully wheelchair accessible.

Temporary wheelchair ramps may be one way to help solve that problem.
Whether driving an SUV, taking a cruise, lodging in a vacation rental or staying at a relative's home, the power chair user who brings a portable travel ramp along can expect to experience expanded access to more places.

Some of the benefits specific to owning a folding, temporary wheelchair ramp are listed below.
