Product Overview

Mabis DMI 5' Telescoping Adjustable Wheelchair Ramps

5' Telescoping Adjustable Wheelchair Ramps


Allegro Medical presents the 5' Telescoping Adjustable Wheelchair Ramps. These retractable, adjustable wheelchair ramps are a handy item to have in your home so wheelchair users can easily come and go from rooms that have steps. They are also great to have around for visitors if your entrance has a step or curb. Wheelchair users will also find them invaluable when visiting friends or family who may not have accessible entrances. Light and compact, these portable ramps are easy to travel with or store in the truck of your car. Each ramp weighs only 6 pounds, making them easy to lift and position. They extend from 3 to 5 feet, so you can use them on different step sizes and heights (see measuring directions). Each ramp can support 330 pounds (660 pounds total between them).

How to Use
Two ramps are included. To extend the ramps, pull sections one and two until the locking buttons are fully extended into the holes and snap into place. After use, simply retract them and put them away in their convenient nylon carrying bag. They are easy to take with you when traveling.

How to Measure for Wheelchair Ramps
To calculate the length of the ramp you will need, first you need to measure the rise. The rise is the measurement between the ground and where the top of the ramp will be placed. The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that public areas have wheelchair ramps with an incline of 4.8 degrees or less (a ratio of 1:12). This equals one foot of ramp for every inch of rise. For residential areas such as homes, ADA recommends a 2:12 slope. This equals one foot of ramp for every two inches of rise. To calculate the ramp length you will need, divide the rise by two. For home use, these ramps would work for rises up to 10 inches.

Next, you need to measure the width of your wheelchair’s wheels. These ramps have an inner track area of 4 inches. Be certain each wheel is no wider than 4 inches before ordering.

Features

  • Two telescoping, adjustable wheelchair ramps easily extend for use with steps, curbs or vehicles then retract for storage.
  • Strong rust resistant aluminum construction with durable non-skid u-shaped tracks for added safety
  • Easily adjustable from 3 to 5 feet with push-button lock mechanism; see measuring instructions before ordering
  • Each ramp can support up to 330 pounds for a total of 660 pounds between them.
  • Ramps are lightweight (6 pounds each) and portable in a convenient nylon storage bag; great for travel.
  • Inside track area: 4 inches wide
  • Retracted size: 6.5 x 29 inches
  • Easy to assemble with no tools

My husband cannot walk much with a walker without tiring - so this is ideal because we can go places now and I can get his wheelchair in and out of the car easily and push it to the door so he can get in. Gives him much more opportunity to go places he normally couldn't go.....

Elderly. Home. temperary . temporary .
Describe Yourself:
Caregiver. Caring for mother.

I have two sets . Because we have a short landing and several steps, one was not long enough, but longer would not help anyway because the small landing would be in the way of longer ramps. but the second set works well off the landing to side walk.

by from live oak ca
BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Good quality, bad performance.

Pros:

Cons:
Wasn't long enough . Wasn't long enough . Slipped off steps.
Best Uses:

Describe Yourself:
Caring for father.

We had trouble stabilizing the ramps. We had to add non-slip material to the deck to rest the angled grips on. At the bottom we used tent stakes to hold the ramps in place. The steep angle was difficult for pushing my Dad in his wheelchair.

BOTTOM LINE No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend

Answer:
The ADA recommends a 3:12 slope if the wheelchair is unoccupied. that means for every 3" of rise, you need 12" of ramp length. If their is someone in the wheelchair you want an even lower angle or slope, 2:12. So for every 2" of rise, you have 12" of ramp length. To figure out the best length just use this calculation: Unoccupied - Rise in inches divided by 3. (e.g. a 24" porch would need an 8" ramp 24/3=8. Occupied - 24/2=12.

Answer:
The weight capacity would be ok as this holds up to 600 lbs. The Jazzy probably weights about 150 lbs. If the height is 10" to your van, it should work. If you are driving the Jazzy into the van you want 12" of ramp lenght for every 2" of height (ground to the van).

Answer:
The F-150 has a tailgate height of about 35". If the power chair is not in use you would need about a 15' ramp. For every 2" in rise you want 12" in ramp length if unoccupied.

Answer:
If the wheelchair is not occupied (no passenger sitting in it) this would work. However, if you intend to push someone up the ramp, you would want something longer. A 7 ft. to 8 ft. ramp would be best if the wheelchair has a passenger when pushing up or down your stairs. Thanks for the question!
