For most wheelchair and scooter users, thresholds can be a significant obstacle. Ground level differences, stairs and other obstacles can be often handled with the use of a portable wheelchair ramp. Threshold ramps are common with most types of doorways and entrances as access is often an issue. Negotiating many thresholds can be a difficult and bumpy process. To make a threshold less of an obstacle there are many sizes and types of small wheelchair ramps available which can be anywhere and ordered in a width suitable for your doorway or cut down to fit.
A wheelchair or scooter ramp which is very long can be an obstacle in itself as the user or care giver may not have the strength or stamina to negotiate the length. Another consideration is that, when exposed to the weather in northern climates someone is going to have to remove ice and snow from the wheelchair ramp prior to each use.
