Ladders that can accommodate loads of up to 500 pounds are considered to be large-rated ladders. These ladders vary in the number of steps, whether they have handrails, and if they are single, extension, platform, or step.
Scooters can be used by people who are obese and have difficulty walking, but must be able to safely accommodate the weight of each user. Some companies provide scooters that are rated up to 400 pounds.
Individuals with mobility impairments who use aids such as scooters, wheelchairs, and power chairs typically use some type of lift to access upper and lower levels of buildings. Large rated wheelchair lifts feature a higher weight capacity than standard wheelchair lifts. They may be necessary when both a passenger and an individual who uses a wheelchair need to access a space.
