Level Up With a Portable Wheelchair Ramp From the Barrier Free Store
If you use a wheelchair or scooter, it can sometimes seem as if the world is filled with obstacles. While stair and wheelchair lifts can provide transport from one floor to another, it’s often the modest but abrupt changes in elevation that make the journey from point A to point B annoying, if not dangerous, for people on the roll. Don’t let a bump in the road keep you from getting to where you need to go. A portable wheelchair ramp can allow for safe navigation over curbs, high thresholds, and short flights of stairs. They can also provide an easy method of transfer in and out of vans. At the Barrier Free Store, we offer a wide variety of portable wheelchair ramps that are durable, sturdy, light, and easy to transport.
