The World’s Most Useless Wheelchair Ramps https://websterwheelchairs.co.uk/useless-wheelchair-ramps/ https://websterwheelchairs.co.uk/useless-wheelchair-ramps/#respond Thu, 15 Feb 2018 13:30:47 +0000 https://websterwheelchairs.co.uk/?p=2320 Here we have a collection of photographs that we have found of some of the most useless wheelchair ramps from around the World. It is nice that people are making an effort to make places more wheelchair accessible, but a lot of these designs are so bad that they are probably doing more harm than good.

Please let us know about any other terrible wheelchair ramp designs in the comments section.
