Chris Eliot with his Secret Access ramp imageChris Eliot from Richmond, London, is one of a growing number of people across the UK benefitting from using the portable Featherweight access ramps from Secret Access.

In January this year, Chris had his leg amputated and on discharge from hospital, was reliant on a wheelchair while he recovered. The wheelchair was great for helping Chris get about but when it came to getting into his home, there was the issue of two steps from the path to the front door.

Chris explained: “The ramps supplied by the NHS were unsuitable as they were so heavy no one could lift them, thankfully we knew about Secret Access having met them at Naidex so promptly ordered 2 Featherweight ramps: 75cm and 200cm long  which were ideal as when combined they reached from the path, over both steps and into our hallway.

“These ramps are just amazing, they are so lightweight that myself, my wife or friends can literally lift them with one finger and you can take them out with you so there is no need to worry about accessing building on a day out. I would not hesitate in recommending Secret Access to anybody who uses a wheelchair.”
