"Is this ramp used only for wheelchairs? Can it be used to step up in a SUV of truck?"
My Dad had to have an emergency partial amputation which quickly put him in his power wheelchair for mobility. I purchased 3 of these and we were able to quickly adapt his home for his new mobility requirements. The portability helps when you need to adapt to new entrances or for travel. I would highly recommend....

I can no longer climb stairs and purchased this four foot ramp to take on trips where I am visiting friends with entry steps into their homes. It fits across the back seat of my Sentra. I also use it to enter and exit my shed, sometimes with a load. It is light enough to carry and easy to handle when folding and storing. The friction surface is high quality and the ramp came with retainer pins that drop through holes at the top of the ramp into holes you drill in your threshold (I have done this with my shed) which prevents it from sliding off. However, I have had the seven foot version of this ramp for ten years and the lip of the ramp has enough grip to keep it in place temporarily without the pins when necessary. My older ramp has been exposed for years to all kinds of weather and the metal, hinges and nonskid surface are all like new.Read More

Questions & Answers
Our ramps are not limited to wheelchair usage. To use a ramp to step up in a SUV or truck, we would recommend the Multifold Reach Ramp. With any vehicle access either walking of unoccupied scooter or chair loading/unloading do not exceed the 3:12 slope ratio (example: UTW1030 would be used on a maximum height of 30").
"I have a hard time ever understanding the steepness or number of normal steps that this would safely work with? Is it just a few inches of a threshold, or will it work with a step or two?"
Ideally we recommend this ramp with a 4-in rise and a maximum of 8-in, with assistance, for occupied wheelchair or scooter passage; where rise will be the total height of the threshold or step. Since a typical step is about 6-in to 7-in, a 4-ft ramp could work with one step, but will not work with two steps.
