Lifts & Ramps
For patients with mobility issues, the simple act of getting into or out of a car or entering a home with steps can be challenging. Whether the patient has limited walking ability or is confined to a wheelchair, lifts and ramps are critical to their ability to get around safely and comfortably. Daily Care, Inc. carries many different types of wheelchair ramps and lifts, along with other accessories designed to help people increase their mobility.
Car Lifts: Whether a person is driving or a passenger, getting a wheelchair into or out of a car, truck or van is hard work. Depending on the person’s level of mobility, it can even limit their ability to travel. Car lifts solve this problem by hoisting wheelchairs or scooters for easy storage. Even people with smaller cars can get the benefits of a car lift by selecting a model designed to securely store their unit on the outside.
Threshold Ramps: Small obstacles on the ground can become major problems for people in wheelchairs and scooters. Small elevation changes around the home, a series of cables on the ground in an office setting, or the bottom plate of a doorway can be difficult to get over. Threshold ramps are easy solutions that help people safely navigate these areas. Daily Care, Inc. carries threshold ramps in a range of sizes and weight limits.
Suitcase Ramps: Folding wheelchair ramps provide a convenient way to increase your mobility when you are traveling. In particular, suitcase ramps are easy to carry with you so that you can avoid obstacles and maintain your mobility wherever you go. They operate much like threshold ramps but are made to be lightweight and portable enough to fold up like a suitcase for easy carrying and storage.
Trifold Ramps: A unique type of folding ramp, a trifold ramp is designed to fold up into three sections. Many trifold ramps can also be split in half lengthwise to go into two easy-to-carry suitcase-style carrying devices. With the ability to fold into three segments and split in half, trifold ramps can be longer and larger than standard portable wheelchair ramps. This means that you can know that you have the length that you need for any situation.
Solid Ramps: When you need a permanent ramp installed in your home, you’ll want to invest in a high-quality solid ramp. Some solid ramps can come with other features such as handrails for people who need assistance while walking up the ramp. These wheelchairs ramps are made from one piece instead of several pieces and provide solid support. However, many of them are still light enough to be moved if needed. They are very solid and typically can handle up to 850 pounds of weight.
