Mobility Ramp or Vertical Platform Lift: Rising to the Top

Navigating in and out of your home can be difficult and dangerous when you or a family member uses a wheelchair.  There is an easy answer; installing and using an EZ-ACCESS® Pathway® Modular Ramp or Passport™ Vertical Platform Lift for your wheelchair, scooter or walker!  How can EZ-ACCESS help you move forward and have greater mobility independence?
The unique design of our modular ramps makes it easy to install and can be easily moved or reconfigured. If the thought of doing your own installation overwhelms you, reliable contractors are available to perform the installation. Our residential ramp systems come in various lengths and sizes and fit over the existing stairs of your home. EZ-ACCESS aluminum ramps come with top and bottom transition plates and, combined with the gentle slope of the ramp, allow an easier and smoother transition on and off of the ramp.
An alternative to a residential ramp is a platform lift from EZ-ACCESS. Modular ramps take up more room and some people prefer using our vertical platform porch lift. This is a great option to help get in and out of your home and requires very little space.
Our Passport™ Vertical Platform Lift comes with some very amazing features.  Our Plug-N-Play wiring technology makes it easy and fast to assemble. The tower and EZ Add-On Accessories are prewired for quick connection to get you safely on your way.  The Passport™ Vertical Platform Lift is made of aluminum making it lightweight and sturdy to allow for easy setup, transport and installation.
Our Passport™ Vertical Platform Lift requires less overall space, less maintenance, less travel distance and less strain for the user and anyone assisting them.  Our residential porch lift runs on DC power with an on-board smart charger, requiring AC power only to recharge the battery. Our vertical lift will continue to work in a power outage with up to 30 complete, fully loaded cycles.
EZ-ACCESS hopes that learning more about our Pathway residential ramps and Passport™ Vertical Platform Lift, will help you roll into your home a little smoother and safer.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns!
