Use Technology to Take Control of Your Health Without Leaving Your Home

Posted on Tue, Jul 10, 2018

Technology is giving patients the ability to gain the insight into their health without having to leave their homes. This is great news for those with mobility concerns, avoiding risk of injury such as falls due to weather conditions and terrain.


Each year, 3 million older people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries. Being able to stay home for routine check-ups could help reduce the staggering amount of injuries.


Technology & Healthcare


Technology is creating roots in our healthcare system, integrating itself into every aspect of the process you’d expect to go through when you see your doctor. In today’s world, you can visit your doctor virtually for a check-up or to seek advice. Healthcare workers are using data from patient phone apps to track blood sugar levels, weight, and many other commonly monitored vitals to gain needed insights to properly assess and diagnose.


The possibilities with technology are endless, and the results have been positive. 80% of physicians are using smartphones and medical apps, and more than 25% of physicians are using mobile technology to provide patient care. Along with the ability to be in communication with patients, technology enables professionals to collaborate. This could be for advanced cases, to gain a second opinion, or just to have everything needed in one place when patients go from one specialty doctor to another. This is the new normal in healthcare.


Your health, healthcare’s future


The American Case Management Association’s (ACMA) 25th Annual Case Management and Transitions of Care Conference’s keynote speaker Dr. Daniel Kraft spoke on “The Future of Health and Medicine: Where Can Technology Take Us” and his clinical and biomedical perspective on technology and its future impact on health care.


Dr. Daniel Kraft Speaking at TedMed


Dr. Daniel Kraft is a Stanford and Harvard trained physician-scientist, inventor, entrepreneur, and innovator with more than 25 years’ experience. He is highly regarded for his insights into the impact and potential of technology in the health and medicine sector.


His talk at the ACMA conference gave an overview of how technology is integrating itself into the everyday lives in the healthcare industry and changing how the whole system works.


Be informed about how the changes could affect you


Watch Dr. Daniel Kraft’s Ted Talk “Medicine’s future? There’s an app for that” to inform yourself further on the ongoing changes in healthcare.



For Amramp customers and the general population, having insight into their health can save them multiple trips to their doctor that can hold up their lives. Technology can help to empower those who often need general check-ups to take their lives back. While consultations would still be required, patients can gain back the time it takes to get to and wait at the doctor’s office.


Amramp has the same spirit of empowerment by offering accessibility solutions like wheelchair lifts, modular wheelchair ramps, portable, lightweight wheelchair ramps, vertical lifts, and threshold ramps enabling them to be as independent as they would like to be.

Amramp Salutes Veterans - Veterans' Day 2015

Posted on Wed, Nov 11, 2015

Amramp Salutes Veterans - Veterans' Day 2015 

When President Wilson first proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day he said, "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…"

Here at Amramp, we also wanted to express our gratitude to those who serve and have served our country and recognize their sacrifice with these images we have collected of each of the five branches of the military. All of us send our gratitude to those currently fighting overseas and to their families. Thank you for your service.

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 Philadelphia Transforms Pennsylvania Family’s Lives

Posted on Wed, Oct 07, 2015

Amramp Philadelphia teams with United Cerebral Palsy and Spina Bifida Association to benefit 4-year-old

4-year-old Nate testing out his new Amramp modular ramp

Four-year-old Nate can now get from his home into his Glenside, PA, yard, just like kids without Spina Bifida, thanks to grants from United Cerebral Palsy and the Spina Bifida Association. 

Nate has already been using the ramp to ride his motorized scooterboard up to our front porch and down to our front yard,” shared Nate’s mother, Jamie, “Now he just can’t wait to get his power wheelchair, and be able to get in and out of our house with it!”

4-year-old Nate testing out his new modular Amramp ramp

Nate’s parents, Jamie and Stephen worked with both UCP and SBADV to secure grants to fund the ramp and installation. The family then contacted Nick Marcellino at Amramp Philadelphia in June to ask if Amramp is willing to work with third-party organizations. 

We performed the evaluation and proposal; when the funds came through a month later, we got to work,” explained Amramp Philadelphia owner-operator Marcellino. 

Spina Bifida is a condition that occurs when the spine of a baby fails to close, creating an opening, or lesion, on the spinal column. This opening can lead to nerve damage in the spinal column, which then results in varying degrees of paralysis. 

Amramp’s patent-pending steel modular wheelchair ramp connects the family’s porch to the front yard, comprising two 4-foot-by-4-foot platforms and 25-feet of ramp. Amramp experts arrived at 9 a.m. and installation was complete in about a half-day, by 1 p.m.

Thank you so much to the two gentlemen who installed the ramp (and the other gentlemen who were there for the evaluation previously), who were so friendly professional, efficient, and were so good with interacting with our son,” said Jamie. 

Thank you to United Cerebral Palsy and Spina Bifida Association of Delaware Valley for their generous financial assistance to help make this possible. Thank you also to Nick and Joyce at Amramp, for all your work to coordinate the ramp evaluation, purchase, and installation. We appreciate all of you and the work you have done to help make this happen,” Jamie said. “We can't thank you enough for everything!”

Every ramp or accessibility product that we install is very meaningful to the Amramp team in all 45 locations across North America, because we know that our efforts are improving individual’s lives and their loved ones, too.

We just changed a little boy’s life and his parents for the better,” said Marcellino, “Very humbling.”

Amramp Rocks the 2015 WCEC Conference in Orlando

Posted on Thu, Aug 13, 2015

Joan Jett

The 70th Annual Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference (WCEC) and the 27th Annual Safety and Health Conference is being held August 23-26, where thousands of attendees will be descending upon the Orlando World Resort Marriott in Orlando, Florida, to study and explore changes in the national workers’ compensation and safety industries. 

Some highlights from the conference will include:

There are a few panels that you also shouldn't miss including:

  • Return-to-Work: This panel will focus on giving attendees the skills and strategies to assist employees returning to the workplace after an injury
  • Workplace Safety & Health: This series of classes will be going over all the different facets of maintaining a safe and healthy workplace, from pre-employment testing to accident investigation.
  • Medical Issues: This Mini-Med School, which is popular with adjusters, attorneys and nurse case managers, will be teaching attendees how to identify prescription and illegal drugs that are being abused by workers which cause increased risk of workplace injuries and the legalities surrounding that.
  • Disney's SyncLink™ Technology: Since you can't help but immediately think Disney when you think of Orlando, as a special treat, attendees will be given a peek behind the curtain of Disney's revolutionary SyncLink™ Technology, a wireless, synchronized data management system that can give real-time compliance and food safety data.

Explore the complete program detailing the hundreds of speakers, presentations, and exhibitors on the WCI website. Attendees can also earn continuing education (CE) credits.  A complete list of all courses of approved for credit will be available at the Continuing Education desk in the registration area. 

Amramp is honored to be invited to exhibit at WCEC 2015. Not only will we be demonstrating our latest products and advances in accessibility, but, in honor of Joan Jett and Blackhearts, the exhibit hall is also going to be decorated in an ’80s/neon/rock ’n’ roll theme. With over 8,000 attendees and 450 exhibitors, it promises to be a great time. We hope to see you in Orlando!
