Access Ramps For The Disabled


Access ramps for the disabled are short concave slopes or bends that connect the higher end and lower end of a staircase, providing a sloping service for the wheelchair to roll down.

In 1970, Disabled Persons Act made it compulsory for the local authorities in the UK to see that disabled persons had enough disability assistance devices in their own homes. In 1971, the Department of Health and Social Security Disability Service brought forward the proposal for a better provision of simple personal mobility aids and other domestic equipment and fixation of admissible adapted equipment in their homes. So, the ramps are manufactured as mobility aids for the people on wheel chairs for smooth movement without thuds or injury.

The American Disability Association (ADA) and The Disability Rights Commission declared a number of disabilities devices for the hearing disabilities, mental disabilities, visual disabilities and other physical disabilities and recommended the standards for preparing the devices that will be auxiliary for the persons having the kind of respective disability. The adapted equipment help the disabled person to perform activities which he would otherwise find difficult.

For their safety in mobility, handicap safety devices have been introduced like, the wheel chair, handicap van, scooters, walkers and alike. They not only are a safe option for moving but are also safe in the kind of easy handling. Handicap safety means a safety from their greatest threat of inability, social security, financial assistance for rehabilitation and a normal life with different kinds of aids.

The Access ramps for the disabled make the movement more comfortable. The new kind of ramps are small, portable, lightweight, and they are foldable and easy for carrying and reduce worries about entering buildings or homes.
