These can be ordered from home medical equipment suppliers to make coming and going much easier. Without ramps, patients may be forced to stay indoors, be carried or chance a risky trip down the stairs by hopping on one foot or stepping on unsteady feet. Transferring to and from a sitting position to the wheelchair can be accomplished with the help of a wheel that helps the patient pivot from facing one direction to another. Another option is the transfer board, frequently used by medical staff and homecare givers.

Though steel ramps are sturdier and stronger, they are more expensive and heavier as well. The choice between wood and steel should be made keeping these factors in mind. A semi-permanent wooden wheelchair ramp should cost you between 100 and 250 dollars while steel ramps prices can go as high as $500.
