Wheelchair Ramps: Amramp Provides Access in any Situation

Amramp Helps Prevent Falls and Injuries During Winter Months

Posted on Thu, Jan 14, 2016

Jason Vandevander and the Amramp West Virginia team installed this wheelchair ramp during a light snow storm in Mill Creek, WV.

Even light storms like this can make stairs and pathways icy, slippery and dangerous.

Imagine trying to lift someone in a wheelchair up several steps covered in snow and ice. It’s dangerous for both the person in the wheelchair and whoever is lifting the chair.

A ramp provides a safe pathway in or out of a house and prevents falls and injuries for someone who uses a wheelchair, cane or walker or who is just unsteady on their feet.

The ramp provides safe and easy access to the outside world. People using wheelchairs or who struggle with stairs don’t want to be stuck in the house for two or three months during the winter because they can’t navigate the stairs at their front door. A ramp gives them an opportunity to connect with friends and family, enjoy community activities, go shopping, etc. It makes getting to medical appointments much easier.

Amramp wheelchair ramps can be RENTED, even just for the winter to provide a safe, non-slip surface with safety railings.  

The Amramp wheelchair ramp with its unique open mesh surface lets snow and moisture pass through, preventing dangerous ice film. Aluminum, wood and concrete ramps have solid surface which allow snow and moisture to accumulate.

Amramp is the leading company in the United States specializing in modular steel wheelchair ramps, offering sturdy, customizable ramps for disability access that enable the aging and disabled population to remain in their homes with independence and mobility.  Ramps can be installed temporarily for short or long term needs without damaging the housing structure as they are not a permanent modification to the home. Amramp products comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and are available for sale or rental with no minimum time frame and no ramp size restrictions. 

Amramp provides an array of aging-in-place products and services such as stair lifts, vertical platform lifts, overhead lifts, portable showers, pool lifts and more across the US and parts of Canada.

Amramp exhibits at PACE 2015 elder inclusive-care conference

Posted on Fri, Oct 09, 2015

Amramp Selected to Exhibit at the 2015 NPA Annual Conference in Philadelphia

Amramp is honored to be selected to showcase its installed accessibility products and solutions at the 2015 National PACE Association (NPA) Annual Conference, Oct. 18-21, in Philadelphia.

PACE, aka Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, develops sustainable programs to deliver medical and supportive services to elders 55 and older whom the state certifies needing nursing home-level care.

Strikingly, only about 7% of PACE participants actually reside in a nursing home. Instead, PACE provides services and preserves independence in their own homes, with community support. This event, which is held exclusively for NPA members, exists to advance Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly programs and provide networking and learning opportunities to the executive and clinical staff work tirelessly to support and promote comprehensive, quality, and cost-effective health care services for seniors.

The PACE model of care first began in the early 1970s when William Gee, a public health dentist who headed the nonprofit Chinatown-North Beach Health Care Planning and Development Corporation, hired social worker Marie-Louise Ansak to study the feasibility of building a nursing home in the community. When she found that building a nursing home would be financially impossible, she developed a comprehensive system of care based on the geriatric day-hospital model developed in the UK during the late 1950s and 1960s. Ansak then worked to obtain funding to train health care workers in cooperation with the University of California San Francisco. Since then PACE has grown considerably and currently has 107 programs operating in 32 states, where they offer services such as:

  • adult day care

  • physical, occupational, and recreational therapies

  • meal delivery

  • nutritional counseling

  • home health care and personal care

  • prescription drugs

  • social services

  • medical specialties, such as audiology, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, and speech therapy

More than 600 individuals attended the 2014 NPA Annual Conference, this year is expected to be even bigger. With more than 60 education sessions and 20 poster presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to learn and, with over 25 companies exhibiting.

This year’s keynote speaker Dr. Leana Wen is an emergency-room physician, Rhodes Scholar, author, and TED speaker. Dr. Wen received her medical training at Washington University and Brigham & Women's Hospital/Massachusetts General Hospital, where she was a clinical fellow at Harvard Medical School. As a professor of emergency medicine and health policy, she co-led a national collaboration on health policy and social mission and was founder and director of Who’s My Doctor, a campaign calling for transparency in medicine. The focus of Dr. Wen’s TED talks surround patient advocacy and health care reform. She recently released a book entitled When Doctors Don't Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests. Her speaking fee will be donated to Baltimore-area and other charities.

Amramp is looking forward to being a part of this conference that shares our passion for helping seniors maintain their independence. We will be demonstrating Amramp’s latest accessibility products, including our patent-pending modular ramp system, vertical lifts, and portable showers. Looking forward to seeing all PACE members in Philadelphia!

Fire-ready? Elders’, wheelchair users’ lives depend on it

Posted on Fri, Oct 09, 2015

Reproduced from NFPA's Fire Prevention Week website, www.firepreventionweek.org. © 2015 NFPA. 

For most of us, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Fire Prevention Week means making sure your smoke detectors are working. For people with mobility concerns and for wheelchair users, fire safety requires additional preparation and planning. Here are a few tips to help you – or those you care about – be fire-ready:

Fire-Ready Tip 1 – Develop a fire-escape plan so you know what to do. According to an NFPA survey, three-quarters of Americans have a home-fire escape plan, but more than half never practiced it. When crisis happens at home, work, or anywhere you routinely spend time, you don’t want to have to figure out what to do while in a state of panic.

In addition to evacuation routes, the NFPA Fire Prevention Week Campaign focuses on having fully operational smoke alarms in your home so that in the event of a fire, particularly one in the middle of the night, you are made aware soon enough to get out.

Fire-Ready Tip 2 – If possible, plan for the possibility of not being able to reach your wheelchair. Amramp installed a modular wheelchair ramp for a woman who later suffered a fire in her home. She didn't have time to get to her wheelchair, so she held onto the furniture to make it to the front door. She was able to use the railings on the ramp to get to safety.

The Amramp modular ramp that was reinstalled after the fire

Fire-Ready Tip 3 – Invest in a wheelchair ramp and other equipment that will withstand high heat. In the case of the woman mentioned above, soon after she made it to safety, the aluminum front door melted. This is a dangerous failing of other ramps on the market that are made of aluminum or wood. In the intense heat of a fire aluminum melts and wood burns. Due to the durable steel that Amramp ramps are manufactured with, once they scraped the melted aluminum off, they were able to dismantle and reinstall the ramp at her new home the day after the fire.

Another Amramp client, who was a veteran, suffered a house fire in Hazelton, PA. He and his wife were able to escape using their Amramp wheelchair ramp provided through the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Another man managed to escape his quickly engulfed home in Fair Oaks, NC, by using the Amramp modular wheelchair ramp provided by his church. His ramp was also dismantled and re-installed at his mother’s house right away after the fire.

Per design standards, wheelchair ramps are a “means of egress” in a fire and should be fireproof. Amramp modular ramps are made of the same steel used in fire escapes and provide a stable, fireproof exit in the case of fire. Contact Amramp for independent test lab data on ramp-fire safety.

Home fires killed an average of eight people every day in 2013; half of these deaths resulted from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep. It is crucial to prepare yourself, your family, and your home so that you have the best possible chance to escape a fire should one occur. It is even more vital for wheelchair users and people with mobility concerns. 

For more information on how to prevent a fire in your home check out the NFPA website.

Amramp Creates Accessible Entrance for Canadian Alpacas

Posted on Fri, Aug 14, 2015

Amramp Creates a Safe and Accessible Entrance for Sunnyhill Alpacas

Al the Alpaca "supervising" the ramp installation

As promised in our Fort Macleod Courthouse blog post, we've got the full story about one of Amramp's more unusual projects: installing a ramp at Sunnyhill Alpaca Ranch in Rollyview, Alberta. 

Rollyview is a small hamlet located in central Alberta, Canada, that has a population numbering only 58. However, they aren't short on Alpacas. “It was beautiful,” said Lorne Wensel of Amramp Edmonton, “Rollyview is all rolling hills and farmland and it was a big ranch: One of the largest Alpaca ranches in Canada.” 

Leanne Sept and her sisters, Renee and Marlene, also opened Twisted Sisters & Co. Fibre Mill and Store (TSM) in 2004, where they specialize in processing alpaca fibre. When the fibre is brought to the mill it is washed, dried, picked, de-haired, carded into rovings, and then spun into yarn and plied. They also can blend it with other fibres such as nylon, silk, and merino.

The Twisted Sisters store offers a variety of alpaca yarn as well as finished products such as socks, gloves, sweaters, scarves, duvets, teddy bears, and dog beds, which can now be purchased online. “It's no small operation. They ship all over the world,” said Wensel. Sunnyhill Alpacas boasts a herd numbering over 100 alpacas, in fact, and the “Sunnyhill” kids have won multiple showing awards since the owners, Leanne and Kevin Sept, began raising Alpacas in the late 1990s.


An Amramp ramp makes entry to Twister Sisters yarn store safely accessible even in Alberta's winters

It is also a tourist destination. Every week knitting groups come in on buses to buy alpaca yarn. However, with the icy Alberta winters, a lot of these visitors were struggling to make it up the steps. “We installed a ramp 24-feet-long with a 4-foot-by-4-foot platform at the top to make it accessible and safer,” Wensel explained. Amramp's steel-mesh surface allows snow and rain to pass through, making Amramp ramps more suitable for wintery and rainy climates than a wooden or other solid-surface ramp.

The installation was fairly quick, taking only a morning. “I hated to leave, I was enjoying being there so much,” Wensel laughed, “The alpacas were watching me. They didn't seem bothered by me working away.” The Amramp team, in 45 locations all across North America, is happy to have the alpacas' stamp of approval!

Thank You to Amramp for Saving Our Vacation in Pigeon Forge, TN

Posted on Fri, Apr 25, 2014

Log Cabin Rental in TN

 

Amramp customer and blogger Sabrina Smither shared her Amramp experience on her blog:

http://walkingandrollingtraveling.com/

 

“I would first like to send a huge THANK YOU to Tim Rash from Amramp East Tennessee for saving our vacation to Pigeon Forge TN.  Sean and I agreed to be chaperons on my son’s high school retreat.  Although the cabin arrangements were made by the school, I was the one who found the listing for the cabin.  I was the one who broke the cardinal rule of not asking enough questions!!!

 

When we arrived at the cabin on Sunday, we were all dismayed to find that the listing and all the information was wrong and the cabin was not any way close to being wheelchair accessible.  It did not even have a ramp and of all the cabins in this complex, ours had the only non-paved parking.  So what do you do??  You get on the internet and find a solution.  Amramp!!!!

 

Thank goodness we had 5 very strong high school boys with us and with a little creative thinking we got Sean in the cabin.  Let me just say I could not watch at all what they were doing.  Now the problem was we were stuck in the cabin with no why out!!!  Yea, didn't think that one through at the time.

 

I am a problem solver so what do I do is get on the internet and find us a ramp.  That is how I found Amramp and Tim Rash.  I filled out the e-mail request on there web site with the hopes that I could buy a ramp the next day and then we would be able to get in and out.  I received a call first thing Monday morning.  Tim talked over our situation and gave me some options.

 

My hope of just buying a ramp was not going to work because they did not have one long enough on site that would go up the 3 (yes 3) tall steps and get us close enough to the van for his heavy chair to make it through the gravel.  Most of the time you would just order one and are not faced with something like this.

 

Tim had another great option for us.  He had a ramp that we could rent!!!  Yes Rent!! They would even bring it the 60 plus miles to set it up and come back and take it down when we check out.  He said they could be at the cabin in the next few hours.  SOLD!!!

Not only did they bring a very safe 10 foot ramp with hand rails but also threshold ramps for free for us to use!!!!

 

I can not say enough about the team at Amramp and Tim for helping us in our time of need and thinking outside the box to help us.   Tim truly saved this week long retreat for us as well as the others on the trip.  They checked in with us throughout the week and made sure everything was fine and we did not need anymore help.  As promised, they were there when we checked out to take it all back to Knoxville.

 

It was a wake up call for us to remember the rules of travel with a wheelchair or a person with limited mobility.

 

I will be perching my own set of portable ramps to have on hand from Tim and Amramp in the coming weeks.  I have looked at ramps but just never knew what to get, so I never did buy any.  I feel that with the personal attention Tim and his team gives we will have the correct ramp for our future needs.

 

Please check out there web site for all your needs and give Tim a call or fill out the customer contact form on the web site and they will get in touch with you and he will be more than helpful in getting you what you are looking for.

 

www.amramp.com

 

In my next post I will be going over the rules to remember when booking a cabin or even a hotel room along with some very important questions to ask.”
