Tips and tricks from people with spinal cord injuries (SCI).
Ramp to vacation home
Wooden ramp with railing
A wooden ramp leads to the entrance. The first part is level and crosses a ditch, followed by a section with a moderate slope, then a hairpin turn followed by a steeper slope. This last part has a fence with a railing.
The steep section has 2 built-in metal grates that let snow and dirt through and provide anti-slip protection.
The railing makes it easier for the user to pall herself up when using the manual wheelchair.
