Because of this, temporary disability ramps are an essential tool to offer a quick and immediate ramp solution to improve accessibility, regain independence and prevent falls.
Here are some benefits of portable disability ramps:
A ramp improves your ability to get in and out of your home and out into the community. Whether you require a wheelchair or walker to move around or simply have reduced mobility, you'll be able to get in and out of your home without placing unnecessary strain on your body.

Since these are foldable disability ramps, they’re designed to be travelled with to help you get back out into your community.
Disability ramps makes it easy to navigate your home; inside and out. A ramp like the Raven Rubber Ramp, although compact enough to be portable, can provide a more permanent ramp solution for lips in doorways which means in most cases, you can continue to manoeuvre around your home without the assistance of a carer or loved one.
Ledges, steps and lips are a common tripping hazard. In the home, these hazards are easier to remove or mask with ramp solutions like the Raven Rubber Ramp, or perhaps some more permanent ramp solutions like a timber wheelchair access ramp.
But, when it comes to the wider community, you have little control over or awareness of the number of tripping hazards in the vicinity. That's why portable disability ramps can help reduce the number of tripping hazards, even when you’re out in public.
By evening out these common hazards like curbs, steps to a building, etc. These disability ramps can prevent serious accidents like slips, trips and falls.
Disability ramps are more than just a tool to remove tripping hazards, they enable you to re-join your community so you can continue participating in the activities you’ve always loved doing, even as your level of mobility changes.
