Is boosting your clients' health, wellbeing and quality of life a core part of what you do? 

Occupational therapy

Then you’d know better than most, helping those with reduced mobility can involve spending hours researching, purchasing and installing ramps… All to ensure you get the right style, fit and size for your client. 

But if you’re overwhelmed by all the options out there, short on time or resources, or simply want to make the process of moving your clients from A to B as simple as possible — we can help. 

We are Ramp Champ, Australia’s largest range of ramps. Since 2016, we’ve worked closely with Occupational Therapists around Australia to help them find mobility ramps (and keep their clients happy). Plus, we’ve worked hard to make it as easy as possible to get the ramp you need. 

In this article, we’re going to break down…

  • Our most popular ramps for Occupational Therapists
  • The simple process of ordering ramps with us
  • How Ramp Champ can make your job easier

Recommended Ramps For Occupational Therapists 

Wheelchair Ramps

For many able-bodied people, it's hard to imagine what it's like to worry about getting in and out of restaurants, public transport and bathrooms — things we often take for granted. 

Public Wheelchair Ramp

Wheelchair ramps look different depending on the situation you need them for, whether that’s a portable ramp, threshold ramp or vehicle ramp (we’ll outline our recommended options below). 

If you need help choosing the best wheelchair ramp, check out our wheelchair ramp buyers guide. 

Rubber Threshold Ramps

Rubber threshold ramps are a great way to boost independence around the home, allowing easy access over doorways, steps and bumps. They’re suitable for wheelchairs, scooters, rollators and even foot traffic. 

Here are our most popular rubber threshold ramps for Occupational Therapists…

  • Heeve Solid Rubber Wheelchair Threshold Door Ramp With Winged Edges
  • Heeve Solid Rubber Wheelchair Threshold Door Ramp With Winged Edges

    Perfect for door thresholds and available in a range of sizes, this ramp is suitable for both indoor and outdoor conditions. It comes with a grooved rubber surface, moulded drain channels and winged edges for access at any angle. Better yet, no installation is necessary, making it an easy solution for your client. 

  • Heeve Recycled Rubber Wheelchair Threshold Door Ramp
  • Heeve Recycled Rubber Wheelchair Threshold Door Ramp

    Manufactured in Australia from 100% recycled tyres, this threshold ramp is made to order with a wide range of heights and widths, plus a choice between winged or straight edges. They’re slip-resistant and can be used virtually anywhere. 

    If you’ve found a threshold ramp you’re interested in, make sure it’s the right fit for your client by correctly measuring the height, width and length.

    Van and Vehicle Ramps

    For clients that regularly travel, van and vehicle ramps are a great way to create a smooth process. 

    Our most popular van and vehicle ramps include telescopic ramps, folding ramps and permanent ramps…

  • Heeve Lightweight Telescopic Ramp 
  • Heeve Lightweight Telescopic Wheelchair Ramps & Carry Bag

    Telescopic Ramps come in two separate parts, making them incredibly lightweight and convenient so you can easily store them when they’re not in use. This ramp is perfect for scooters, tri-walkers and rollators with side rails for added safety. They’re also incredibly versatile — you can use them on vans, vehicles and steps.  Lastly, with our Heeve Telescopic Ramp, it’s important you use it with caution and ensure both the front and rear wheels fit on the ramp at the same time. 

  • Heeve Aluminium Folding Van Ramp
  • Heeve Aluminium Folding Van Ramp

    This is a popular ramp for vans, mini trucks and SUVs. It’s lightweight and portable, and the folding option gives it more length than a non-folding alternative (which is ideal to create a safe gradient). It comes with side rails for added safety and can be used in a variety of situations.

  • Aluminium Permanent Wheelchair Van Ramp
  • Heavy-Duty Aluminium Van Ramp

    If you’re looking for something a little more permanent for your client — without the need for maneuverability — installing a permanent van or vehicle ramp could save you time and physical labour. Designed to be mounted on the floor of a van, this ramp has a 270kg carrying capacity. 

    Rubber Kerb Ramp

    A rubber kerb ramp provides a smooth transition from the road to a driveway. It’s commonly recommended to prevent low cars from bottoming out, but it can also be a great option if your client with reduced mobility regularly travels up and down a driveway. 

    Our most popular rubber kerb ramps for Occupational Therapists…

  • Heeve 100% Recycled Rubber Kerb Ramp
  • Heeve Driveway Rec. Rubber Kerb Ramp 1m Sections for Rolled-Edge Kerb

    Suitable for rolled edges, our Recycled Rubber Kerb Ramp is 1m in length and made from reclaimed truck tyres. The smaller length makes them suitable for curved driveways or cul-de-sac streets. 

  • Heeve Solid Rubber Kerb Ramp  
  • Heeve Driveway Rubber Kerb Ramp in 1.2m Sections for Rolled-Edge Kerb

    A popular option for rolled edges, our Solid Rubber Kerb Ramp is 1.2m in length and features an inbuilt water channel, permanent fixing holes and reflective strips for nighttime.
