With the aim to touch lives of those facing difficulties due to their disability, Rifton embarked on a journey in 1997, determined to deliver the best designs for people with disabilities. To provide easy-use and functional solutions to enhance day to day activities of people with disabilities, Rifton Equipment deliver apparatus to offer complete support and stability. One of its transportation gears, the Tram is designed to help maintain an upright posture and aids in movement.
The TRAM is a transfer and mobility device that delivers three powerful functions in one compact unit. With gait training, sit-to-stand, and seated transfer capability, the TRAM off ers far more than a standard patient lift at a remarkably low price. Th e TRAM features an innovative, patented support system that secures the client with a single buckle. Th is enables the caregiver to quickly prepare the client for a safe transfer. At just over 70 pounds, the TRAM’s compact, lightweight frame is maneuverable in confi ned areas and simple to transport or store. Quickly adoptable by multiple caregivers, the TRAM’s intelligent engineering signifi cantly reduces back strain and stress, providing a smarter and safer environment for caregivers.
Smaller casters and a low frame profi le make the TRAM perfect for rolling into tight spaces such as beneath hospital beds.
The lift column adjusts from 43½”to 58″. The legs expand to fi t around large wheelchairs.
In-home healthcare solution
The TRAM’s versatility makes it the perfect sit-to-stand solution for clients who need help getting up or support while walking. Compact and agile, the TRAM is ideal for in-home care.
The TRAM 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.
Three powerful functions in one device
1. Gait training
With the switch pole in place, the front handle can be removed to increase a client’s independence and access to his environment.
Walking safely with support
The TRAM provides safe supported ambulation without using additional fl oor space or staff. The pelvic support eliminates a client’s fear of falling, allowing for increased focus on essential tasks while maintaining or regaining the ability to walk. Whether for daily exercise or more demanding rehab, the TRAM’s combined sit-to-stand and supported walking functions make it ideal for home or institutional settings.
2. Sit-to-stand transfers
Sit-to-stand for health
The ability to transition between sitting and standing is critical for a client’s independence and health. The TRAM’s pelvic support makes it safe and easy to assist a client with movement regardless of the caregiver’s or client’s size.
3. Seated transfers
The TRAM’s low profi le combined with the comfortable body support and thigh straps give clients security, dignity and unobstructed eye contact with their caregivers and surroundings during a seated transfer.
