There are countless reasons why you might need to provide access to a wheelchair in your home temporarily:

Recovery from a surgery or injury, caring for a visiting loved one, or accommodating for construction are just a few of the many reasons why you might experience a temporary restriction in mobility at home.

Whatever the reason, TOUSDA has a solution!

With the help of these simple tips, and with our wheelchair ramp, stairlift, and vertical lift rentals, you can have a wheelchair-ready home in no time.

 

1, Take a Step Back

Take some time to think about all the areas in your home that might be difficult for someone in a wheelchair.

Do you have any rugs that are bulky or slip-around?

Any thresholds or steps where a ramp might be necessary?

Try to fix these areas before they even become a problem.

If you’re unsure where to start, you can schedule a free on-site evaluation with a factory-certified service technician from 101 Mobility!

Their professional assessment of your home will help you decide what mobility solution is right for you.

 

2, Going Up

Stairs are very difficult for a wheelchair user to navigate. With the help of a stairlift of vertical platform lift rental from TOUSDA, this no longer has to be the case.

Whether you need access to your porch, your deck, or your interior stairway, a vertical platform lift or stairlift are both great options.

If you choose a VPL, you don’t even need to exit your mobility device to operate the lift!

As always, installation of a VPL or stairlift rental is preceded by a free in-home evaluation.

 

3, Clear the Way

Wheelchairs and scooters need clear, uninhibited pathways to operate.

To make this possible in your home, it’s often helpful to eliminate clutter and re-organize your space.

Please get rid of the stacks of unread magazines and start putting shoes where they belong!

This simple step will make all the difference to a wheelchair user.

 

4, Hang Ten

The bathroom can be a very dangerous place for individuals with mobility restrictions.

The possibility of slipping and falling is very high, especially when getting in and out of the shower or bath.

You can eliminate much of the risk with grab bars and safety frames.

Putting non-skid surfaces in place is also a must-do, and try to do your best to keep all surfaces dry!

 

5, Keep Rolling

Life doesn’t stop when you have a temporary mobility restriction.

For on-the-go accessibility, take a look at portable folding ramp rentals from TOUSDA!

These easy-to-transport ramps can go with you wherever you go, making it easier to access buildings that may otherwise be challenging to get into.
