Welcome to our Portable Mobility Ramps collection, where freedom meets accessibility. Designed to enhance mobility for individuals with diverse needs, our range of portable ramps offers a versatile solution to overcoming any obstacle with ease.
Portable ramps are wheelchair ramps that are designed to be easy to transport and store. Usually made from lightweight aluminum, these ramps can travel with you to make any home or travel destination wheelchair accessible.
Types of Portable Wheelchair Ramps
Folding Ramps Folding ramps have a single or multi-fold structure that makes it easy to store and transport. Simply unfold the ramp and place it at your destination.
Roll-Up Ramps Roll-up ramps are built from a series of connected metal links, which allow you to easily adjust length by adding or removing length. Roll the ramp into a cylinder for easy storage.
Features to Consider
No portable wheelchair ramp is exactly the same, and it’s important to consider your personal needs and feature requirements, such as:
Length & Width: How long do you need your portable ramp to be? Will you need to adjust the length?
Weight: Portable ramps are designed to be moved from one place to another. If you will be moving the ramp yourself, consider how much weight you can comfortably carry.
Surface: Many ramps come with slip-resistant rubber surfaces or perforation for rain and snow.
Storage: Where will you be storing your ramp? Select a ramp that will fit within your storage space dimensions.
Portability: Does the ramp come with a handle or carrying case?
Cost: What’s your budget? Most portable ramps range from $100-400.

Tips for Using Portable Wheelchair Ramps
Use Care When Setting it Up To avoid slipping or other incidents, take your time to ensure that the ramp is set up firmly in each new location.
Check the Incline The maximum recommended incline for a wheelchair ramp is one inch of rise for every twelve inches of length. Check to make sure that the slop meets these requirements, and that the ramp has a level landing at the top and bottom.
Regular Maintenance Portable wheelchair ramps require minimal maintenance, but it’s important to occasionally lubricate any hinges on folding ramps and check for any signs of wear and tear. Pay close attention to the areas where the ramp meets the ground, as these areas tend to experience the most stress.
Safety Precautions for Portable Wheelchair Ramps
A few safety precautions to keep in mind while using portable wheelchair ramps are:
Never use the ramp on wet surfaces, as it might affect the stability of the ramp
Never exceed the listed weight capacity of the ramp
Pay attention to ramp incline, and do not exceed one inch of rise for every twelve inches of length
