Stowaway ramp 1 The client has post polio syndrome and wished to use her scooter around the garden with access via a conservatory door. She wanted a ramp that could be folded away.

A braced ramp was made that slides sideways on a steel tube supported below the doorstep and at the end of the stowing area by hardwood blocks fixed to the wall.

A plastic strip was fitted at the lower edge to reduce wear from theconcrete surface. A hooked pole allows the client to pull the ramp into position or hook it to the wall to stow it away.

Stowaway ramp 2The client can gain access to and from the garden on her electric scooter, stowing away the ramp after use.
