Portable ramp

A portable ramp in the car helps deal with the occasional step with the wheelchair.

Description
Portable telescoping ramps from Kvistberga. The user removed the upper corner of the edge facing the inside of the ramps to prevent the wheelchair from getting stuck.

Authors comments
The Permobil has poor clearance. When riding down the ramp it is easy to get stuck on the inner edge. Therefore Conny removed the upper corner. Backing down the ramp also helps him avoid getting stuck. Having the ramps in the car at all times is extremely practical. There are always a few steps when you want to visit people, or at a restaurant, etc. The ramps work for the Permobil and for manual wheelchairs.

Manufacturer
In Sweden for example Kvistberga, www.kvistberga.se (last checked March 2017).
