Active Lifestyle Wheelchair Ramps
If you use a wheelchair or mobility scooter, you know having a ramp is vital. It’s not only about having a scooter and wheelchair ramp in and around your home—you need them in public spaces, too. Active Lifestyle Mobility Products has the solutions you need to live a more independent and active life.
We carry both portable and permanent ramps, including:
Our ramps come from Prairie View Industries, a company renowned for its excellent products. Some ramps, like the rubber threshold ramps, have no load weight limits, while others can hold up to 800lbs.
PVI portable wheelchair ramps are lightweight, and all of their ramps, whether portable, rubber or modular, are available in many lengths and widths to accommodate all types of mobility devices. These scooter ramps are safety-conscious with slip-resistant surfaces that fit wherever you need them to go.
Our ramps are made in the USA, and we always deliver reliable products. We’re pleased to serve the Houston and Southeast Texas areas, making mobility and independence possible for people with disabilities.
Our clients are our priority, and we’ll do everything we can to give you the handicap ramp you need to live your life comfortably. We offer free assessments and quotes for our ramps as well. If you need one, give us a call and set up an appointment.
Purchasing the right scooter and wheelchair ramp takes some thought. You must consider what kind of wheelchair or power scooter you have, your weight needs, installation conditions, materials, and where you need a ramp in your daily life. For example, do you need a portable wheelchair ramp, or are you looking for something permanent to help you get into your home?
Installing a handicap ramp can benefit both you and others. Yes, it increases your independence and mobility, but it also helps those who help you. If you have a family member or caregiver, they’ll find ramps convenient if they help transport you or bring large or unwieldy items into your home.
Our scooter and wheelchair ramps are easy to install, and we can easily fit them into your home for you. Our modular ramps can even increase your home’s value if you choose to sell in the future, especially if the next family has someone who needs it.
The most significant advantage, however, will be yours. With more mobility equipment comes a more active life, which is what we want to give you. We have twenty years of experience installing ramps that work for people with many different disabilities, and we tailor our service to your situation.
The scooter and wheelchair ramp you choose depends on your personal needs. No two people’s homes or disabilities are the same, and as a veteran-owned company, we understand that. We’re committed to giving you the best mobility products available so you can live the way you want.
