Founded by a leading manufacturer of furniture and equipment for early childhood settings, Rifton equipment came into being in 1997. Rifton Equipment is developing with care, different positioning systems and mobile equipment for sitting and standing, with various sizes and postural support for efficiency to all ages and functions. The Rifton E-Pacer is one such mobility equipment that helps the caregivers to lift the patients in a seated position conveniently.
The Rifton E-Pacer is the largest member of the Pacer family.
Its sit-to-stand lift functionality removes a major barrier to gait training for large or highly dependent clients. Th e E-Pacer combines the powerful electric lift column and secure body support of Rift on’s TRAM with the multi-function casters of the Pacer. Th e result is more than the sum of its parts. Th e E-Pacer can be a life-changing solution for clients who have grown too large or too dependent to be safely transferred into manual gait trainers. Its strong and stable frame accommodates users up to 6′ 5″ and 350 lbs.
The lift column adjusts from 32¾” to 59″. The legs expand to fi t around large wheelchairs.
The E-Pacer’s ankle prompts prevent scissoring and regulate stride length and placement.
The E-Pacer scale connects with a phone or tablet via Bluetooth to display scale data on Rifton’s Gait Tracker app. The Gait Tracker shows a running average of the weight measured by the scale and calculates average weightbearing for a gait training session.
Mount a phone on the patient handgrip with a bicycle phone mount to make the scale visible to the client.
Transfers made easy
The E-Pacer’s electric lift makes the initial transfer safe and simple even with large clients. Here is one possible sequence for a no-lift transfer:
Transfer the client onto the pelvic support in a seated transfer using the thigh straps.
Use the pelvic support for a sit-to-stand transfer.
Begin gait training.
Room to dance!
The E-Pacer’s wide base provides stability and ample space for unobstructed footwork. Expanding the base legs gives even more room for clients who need extra step width.
