How to choose a threshold ramp for your wheelchair?

We know deciding which threshold ramp to purchase can be daunting. With so many different types and options, it is easy to become frustrated. Here are some tips to help you to decide which threshold ramp is right for you -

  1. Choose a ramp made of rubber if you are looking for one that can withstand heavy weights. If you need a lightweight, portable ramp, choose one made with aluminum.
  2. Measure the height of doorways or steps the wheelchair would have to clear before ordering, as the ramp comes with an adjustable or fixed height option. 
  3. Make sure to add the total weight of the user and the wheelchair combined to ensure that the ramp you choose can bear the weight of both.
  4. Understand the installation procedure properly, so you can avoid getting stuck when carrying a ramp outdoors.
