ARTICLE: Long-tread, Low-riser steps instead of ramps - For many people with mobility impairments, long-tread, low-riser steps can be easier and safer to use when compared to a 1:12 slope ramp. The large level step tread allows easy walker use, and the risers short height makes stepping up and down easier than standard steps. Balance is easier to maintain on the level steps than on a sloped surface; the steps requires less space than a ramp and are less expensive.
