Nathan Colburn Projects, Wheelchair Ramps

After an ATV accident two years ago, our client lost his right leg. Not being the type of guy to slow down, he asked neighbors to build him a ramp in the garage before he left the rehabilitation facility. The wheelchair ramp they built worked well for a while but a near tumble in his wheelchair off the side of the homemade ramp lead him to call the Dallas Accessible Systems team to see what the options were for a more formal solution. A quick rearrange of the garage and a modular metal ramp later, this Arlington, Texas client is ready to get back to doing the things he loves. As an added bonus, his teenage grandsons think his wheelchair ramp is a pretty cool tool to use to practice their skateboarding tricks.
