Made of fibreglass and carbon fibre, Stepless Lite ramps are some of the lightest models on the market, so they are ideal for active users who have to handle ramps themselves – and who can now carry their own ramp with them. Stepless Lite models feature a broad driving surface and are simple to fold in the middle (lengthwise). They are also extremely light, making them easy to transport. Despite their low weight, Lite ramps can handle loads of up to 300 kg. The 85 cm Lite model easily bridges most bathtubs, which means it can double as a portable bath chair for active users.
The Lite ramp features the following benefits:
Lite ramps are available in different lengths to accommodate different needs.
We always recommend using the longest ramp possible – the longer the ramp, the gentler the gradient and the easier the ramp is to negotiate. Generally speaking, we recommend the following ramp lengths in relation to the stated gradients:
User-operated manual wheelchair: maximum gradient 1:7.
Helper-assisted manual wheelchair and electric wheelchair: maximum gradient 1:5.
Recommended ramp lengths are presented in the chart below.
A smart bag for the wheelchair that makes it easier to transport the small 70 cm lite ramp is available.
