Hey there!  Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Do you or a loved one need a temporary ramp?  Did you know you can rent one for just a day, or however long you need one?   According to Amramp, about 45% of wheelchair ramps should be rented when they're not needed permanently.  These rentals are ideal for short term disabilities, recovery from surgery, special events such as weddings, graduations, family gatherings and more!  Amramp is noted to be "North America's Leading Wheelchair Ramp" and offers a variety of benefits other ramps don't.
One of the major benefits of this modular ramp is that it is rentable!  If you need a ramp for six months or less, consider renting the Amramp Wheelchair Ramp!  It's even an ideal solution for longtime use.
Other features and benefits of the Amramp Wheelchair Ramp include:
  • Unique open mesh ramp surface which allows moisture to pass through, thus reducing risk of dangerous ice film or mold forming on the surface.
  • ADA Compliant
  • Most slip-resistant modular ramp available
  • Fireproof
  • No permits required
  • Made in America from 100% recyclable and recycled steel.
