These 3D printed portable wheelchair ramps allow you to access small inclines in a safer manner. Designed by Thingiverse user Nanonan, the miniature ramps are ideal for curbs and short steps. The brightly colored portable wheelchair ramps will not only be a cinch to spot in your bag, they also improve mobility. This simple and effective invention is ideal for older cities like Berlin (where Nanonan resides) that were built without accessibility in mind.

The ramps also have an added attractive feature, which is that they were made using 3D printing. 3D printing is a process whereby virtually any shape or digital model can be turned into a solid, three-dimensional object. If you have access to a 3D printer, you can make your own portable wheelchair ramps.
