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.

The ramps appear to be 7.5'' wide from edge to edge. What is the width of the inside of the ramp between the two outer track rails? Need to make sure that both the casters and tires/hand rims will fit on.
