According to the Centers for Disease Control, 22 percent of Americans report having a disability, and the most common disability was rheumatoid arthritis. RA is a debilitating form of arthritis that can cause limited mobility, frequent pain and decreased activity. Although it is ideal to seek treatment for rheumatoid arthritis early on, we know it may be difficult to recognize the symptoms right away.
EZ-ACCESS is here to show you how different types of ramps can help with limited mobility caused by RA. We strive to help everyone with limited mobility and those who suffer from debilitating diseases and conditions.
Suitcase Singlefold Ramp– This type of ramp is perfect for people who are on the go and need help climbing small sets of steps and getting into the house. It is portable and made of durable aluminum to last through any weather condition. You can leave it at the entrance of your home or bring it with you into town or on vacation.
Tip: Make sure you are with someone who is able to carry the ramp, so you don’t overwork your joints.
Pathway Modular Access System– If you are confined to a wheelchair because of rheumatoid arthritis, the Pathway Modular System is right for you. Instead of having to build a wood ramp outside of your home, this system from EZ-ACCESS is an easy setup for almost any home. It will give you easy access to the world outside of your home. You can feel even more independent with a ramp system permanently a part of your home.
Tip: Contact your local EZ-ACCESS dealer to see if they have installation included with your purchase.
Transitions Angled Entry Ramp– Never worry about tripping over the lip of the door with your walker again. RA can make it extremely difficult to lift your legs, and you surely don’t want to suffer a fall.
Tip: Always have someone assist you when walking out the door to avoid a fall.
