Hi All. I am travelling with my son who is in a wheelchair around Sicily over Easter , by myself along with a 17 month year old. Can anyone recommend a good LIGHTWEIGHT RAMP they have used for travel in the past , for getting down steps etc. ?
Hi @gladys / Emma
I’m unable to recommend a product from personal experience
but I think what you need to search for online is “lightweight folding suitcase
You can find examples here:
Hope this helps

I have answered your query about average width of powerchairs on your other post about the same topic
Now that I've realised that the query relates to your 17 month old I appreciate that it may be difficult to predict what your son's wheelchair needs and skills might be in future years.
Generally speaking I would say that moving around a home is easier for a wheelchair user if you go for the widest doorway that is practical, rather than going for the narrowest doorway their chair will go through. So if you are 'future proofing' your home and intend to be there for some time it may be best to go for wider doorways rather than narrower ones unless you have a good reason not not.
