Selecting the correct length wheelchair ramp or scooter ramp
It is easy to get confused as to the right length ramp for your situation. We developed Ramp Wizard™, our ADA wheelchair ramp calculator, to help you quickly and easily find just the right ramp for you and your needs. Find the right wheelchair ramp for you with just a few clicks!
How to Calculate Wheelchair Ramp Length
We will need to know the total rise you are climbing with the ramp. This is the total vertical height you need to climb (in inches).
- For wheelchair ramps for stairs, measure each stair and add them together.
- For other applications, like porches, measure from the ground straight up to the highest point you will need to reach.
