Solutions for disabled access to overcome stairs and steps
Nov 16, 2017

Travelling in your own wheelchair with stairs and steps can be challenging. The seats, armrests and footrests fold up for added clearance but it’s always best to park the unit at the top or bottom of the stairs so it doesn’t stick out on the stairway. If space is available, the track can be extended around the top or bottom corners of the stairs so the unit can be parked down the hallway.
