Some factors to consider when deciding which type of wheelchair ramp is right for you are weight capacity and ramp height and length. Weight capacity is an incredibly important factor for the user’s safety. Many motorized scooters weight up to seven or eight hundred pounds, it is crucial to make sure the ramp you choose can support the weight of your mobility device in addition to the users body weight and the weight of any additional medical devices that may need to be carried by the scooter. It is also very important to make sure the ramp height and length complies with ADA regulations. ADA requires all public and business wheelchair ramps have a 1:12 slope ratio. ADA also states that no ramp should be longer than 30 consecutive feet. These regulation guidelines are set to ensure optimal safety.
