How can I use a wheelchair ramp?

Using a wheelchair ramp is a great way to ensure that people with mobility impairments can have safe access in and out of buildings and other areas that may not be easily accessible. Using a wheelchair ramp from Amramp is easy. Our expert installers position the ramp so that it is securely attached to the area you are trying to access. We make sure that our ramp is on a flat, level surface and that it is not too steep. Once the ramp is in place, you’re free to slowly roll your wheelchair up and down the ramp, using the included handrails. When you reach the top, carefully turn your wheelchair around so that you can safely roll down the ramp. Be sure to take your time and use caution when navigating the ramp.
