New automatically adjusting ramp improves accessibility for people with mobility needs
Enable Access, a UK specialist in accessibility solutions, has launched a “fast and easy-to-use” threshold bridge ramp – with no user adjustment required – to help improve accessibility for those with reduced mobility.
The Butterfly Ramp automatically adjusts as it is placed to suit all threshold types and features a low-profile design with a shallow and safe gradient that will work with most mobility devices.
Available in two sizes, the ramp will cover thresholds of up to six inches high. Its all-weather anti-slip surface folds inside when carrying for extra safety and the ramp comes with integral comfort carrying handles.
Neil Smith, Key Account Manager at Enable Access, told AT Today: “We’re so excited about this as a brand new product innovation because it is so easy, both to choose and to use, thus it really is everyone’s threshold bridge solution!
“It simply adjusts to bridge over all types of thresholds, even where the drop is different each side, without any setting up or adjustment needed from the user, and is suitable for almost any mobility device.”
A video of the ramp in action can be viewed on the Enable Access website.
The accessibility specialist is also holding a live demonstration webinar on Thursday 15th April at 2.30pm. It is aimed at occupational therapists (OTs), prescribers, clinical leads, commissioners, equipment technicians, DFG and adaptation teams, case managers and other professionals in the accessibility sector.
This educational session will provide information on the latest RampCentre wheelchair ramps and access solutions, manufactured by Enable Access, and includes information on how to specify portable and modular mobility access ramps, with specific advice for local authority teams and prescribers.
A certificate of attendance will be distributed afterwards together with an Access & Ramp Assessment Guide booklet.
The webinar will take place via Zoom and interested delegates can register for free here
