Differences between modular and portable wheelchair ramps

When there are so many different types of Wheelchair Ramps on the market, it is good to be informed before making your final decision on which type best suits your specific needs. A Handicap or Wheelchair ramp can be a vital asset to your home, business, school, church or office. It can make the difference on whether or not you, your loved one, or clients can even enter the front door. Ramps not only offer access to those using wheelchairs or power scooters, but make it safer for anyone with any type of mobility issue including those using a walker, knee scooter, crutches, a cane, pushing a stroller, or those who simply are unable to navigate stairs or steps. A common question seems to be about the difference between modular and portable ramps.
