Retractable wheelchair ramp
The ramps were constructed from plywood with a side guard to ensure that the wheelchair cannot run over the edge. To bridge the doorframe, the two halves were connected using door hinges welded together to form an extended double hinge unit and fitted in the centre to avoid the area of the wheel run. The external ramp could be folded inside the door when not in use. By using a pole-and-hook arrangement the client can unfold the ramp and then retrieve it whilst still in his wheelchair.
The client is now able to maintain his independence and to enjoy his garden.
