A wheelchair lifts and a wheelchair ramp can help to solve problems for wheelchair users in their life.
In my home, there is no space to build a slope at the entrance, therefore I set up a wheelchair lifts there.I got this tool from a friend of mine who also has a spinal injury. This is so expensive that would cost me thousands of dollars. This tool is very helpful as well.
Before getting the wheelchair lifts, I checked similar devices in the catalog, but there are lots of different types in it that I cannot choose the best one.
I wondered if I could try out everything before I choose which to buy.
This image shows how the device goes up and down. It takes 10 minutes to lift up. In opposite, it takes 8 minutes to go down.
On this device, I transfer to an indoor wheelchair, like changing shoes from outdoor shoes to indoor shoes.
The device had a handrail for safety purpose, but I took it out because of its inconvenience.
Once you put a wheelchair lifts, you cannot remove it easily, it would be better to thoughtfully choose where to set it up.I am kind a regretting now that I chose wrong position to place…
If there is enough space to keep a slope in your house, you can clear up a problem with steps.
The slope in the above picture is easy to remove. A carpenter made it for me at ten thousands yen.
I got this slope as well. If I want to go up the stairs, I need some people to carry me and my wheelchair, but with this slope, I can wheel myself up without anybody’s help, or even on a steep slope, I can go up with only a person who pushes my wheelchair.
