Chris Eliot from Richmond has become one of a growing number of people across the UK benefitting from using the portable Featherweight access ramps from Secret Access.
In January of this year, Chris had his leg amputated and on discharge from hospital was reliant on a wheelchair while he recovered.
Chris said the wheelchair was great for helping him get about but when it came to getting into his home there was the issue of two steps from the path to the front door.
He explained: “The ramps supplied by the NHS were unsuitable as they were so heavy no one could lift them, thankfully we knew about Secret Access having met them at Naidex so promptly ordered 2 Featherweight ramps: 75cm and 200cm long which were ideal as when combined they reached from the path, over both steps and into our hallway.”
Adding: “These ramps are just amazing, they are so lightweight that myself, my wife or friends can literally lift them with one finger and you can take them out with you so there is no need to worry about accessing building on a day out. I would not hesitate in recommending Secret Access to anybody who uses a wheelchair.”
Secret Access said it will be exhibiting a range of its access solutions at The OT Show this year.
