This research seeks to provide a comprehensive understanding of the current design, installation and use of demountable ramps. Through understanding the advantages and limitations of using demountable ramps, this research aims further to investigate the possibility of demountable ramps as a potential cost-saving home adaptation compared to other mobility access options. It is hoped that this research will increase consumer knowledge and assist consumers to make informed decisions when choosing a ramp. The research also seeks to guide home modification practice in supporting people with mobility impairments, with a greater focus on flexible design.
