Amramp Provides Wheelchair Ramp for the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability of San Francisco State University for "The Dissies"

Amramp is the Event Sponsor for "The Dissies" October 12 at 7PM.

October 10, 2013 // Franchising.com // San Francisco, CA - A 29 Foot Long Amramp Wheelchair Ramp will be used to insure accessibility for the Superfest International Disability Film Festival October 12 at 7 PM. The event will take place at The Women’s Building 3543 18th Street, San Francisco. This annual event is sponsored by the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University and the San Francisco Lighthouse for the Blind.

This Year’s Superfest will consist of a special event, "The Dissies," in which disability in film will be contemplated by recognizing and reclaiming the more regrettable representations of disability in movies. Films have been nominated by the disability communities in which negative portrayals of disability most affected them. A clip from each nominee will be played and the audience will have the opportunity to vote for the worst of the worst.

Dissies categories include:

  • The Worst Disabled Villain
  • The Most Amazing Miracle
  • Crips Gone Wild
  • And more! 

Amramp installs accessibility ramps and showers throughout the California area at businesses, residences, schools and institutions.

About Amramp

Amramp is the leading company in the United States specializing in modular steel wheelchair ramps, offering sturdy, customizable ramps for disability access that enable the aging and disabled population to remain in their homes with independence and mobility. Ramps can be installed temporarily for short or long term needs without damaging the housing structure as they are not a permanent modification to the home. Amramp products comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and are available for sale or rental with no minimum time frame and no ramp size restrictions.

Amramp also installs Vertical Platform Lifts which are used where the length of a ramp might be impractical. Portable wheelchair showers are used when a client cannot utilize the shower or tub facility and does not want to remodel the bathroom.

Amramp has been providing accessibility ramps, vertical platform lifts, stair chairs and wheelchair showers in Southern and Northern California since May, 2007 and has nine employees.
