Amigo Owner Helpful Tips

June 2018

Spring and summer are peak seasons to travel. If you have plans to travel soon, here are two items Amigo owners told us about that helped during their trips.

One Amigo traveler highly recommends the SUITCASE Graphite Fiber ramp when she travels. The ramp is made of graphite fiber, which makes it very strong – capable of supporting over 600 pounds – and extremely light. The shortest version weighs less than 8 pounds.

She explains that a lightweight ramp is ideal for international travel to help you get up that curb when there are no drops, or into that store or restaurant that just has one step to enter. These ramps are available for purchase on Amazon. If you travel frequently to places that do not provide flat entry, a portable ramp can be a real lifesaver.

Another Amigo owner informed us about an assist strap that helps him maneuver out of hotel beds.

He mentioned that the Stander BedCaddie is a great assistive device for getting out of bed because he has some upper body control, but limited mobility everywhere else. The BedCaddie is an adjustable nylon strap that has several built-in handles like a rope ladder, making it easy to climb into a sitting position. It attaches to any bed frame. This device can be found on Amazon, too.
