CASE STUDY - 1st Choice Ambulette of Glen Cove, New York provides an added service that is uniquely suited to the needs of the disabled. They offer a wheelchair ramp rental and installation service. The ramps are ADA approved, professionally installed in one day, and can be temporary or permanent. People that unexpectedly find themselves confined to a wheelchair, such as after a motor vehicle accident, face a real predicament when it comes to making their home accessible. Some will try make do with hobbling down steps, or have someone they know assemble a makeshift ramp that is not ADA approved. Those unfamiliar with ramps often underestimate the amount of space needed to navigate corners with a wheelchair, as well as distance required for a safe grade of incline. A Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) company is in a unique position of both being in contact with potential customers that may need a ramp, as well as being able to appreciate first hand the importance of a safe, well installed ramp. Wheelchair ramps for homes can range from expensive permanent wood construction, to manufactured semi-permanent modular systems, and temporary folding ramps. By renting temporary ramps, a NEMT company could service that market niche that only needs a ramp for a limited amount of time. If they find the investment prohibitive, they might consider partnering with a local medical supply company. That way the NEMT company could still offer the full range of products available, while avoiding the costs of maintaining a large inventory.
