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 Mini Pacer with fixed frame is one such mobility equipment that helps bring children closer to an easier and effective way using the toilet and bathing, for an enhanced bathroom regime.
Gait training has come a long way since we introduced our first model almost 30 years ago, and our Pacer continues to evolve and improve to meet our customers’ needs. Over the years your suggestions have helped us keep our design at the cutting edge. The Pacer, because it can be configured in so many ways, can accommodate clients of every ability, in any environment. It’s the versatility and dependability you’ve come to expect from Rifton.
Walking is complex. When we talk about dynamic gait training we refer to the often unobserved but significant shift s of body and weight that occur in typical gait patterns. Rift on’s dynamic Pacer allows the dynamic weight-bearing and weight-shifting needed for a natural gait pattern while providing the support necessary for correct posture.
Perfect positioning made easy
The single-column upper frame features a locking gas spring that adjusts to any height on the indexed column.
Combining the fluid height adjustments on the MPS and upper frame brings the seat low enough for transfers from the seated position.
Once the transfer is completed, caregivers raise the upper frame to bring the client into an upright position.
The Multi-Position Saddle (MPS) is the ultimate pelvic positioning accessory. Adjustable in five directions to accommodate each client’s posture, the MPS easily attaches to both the dynamic and standard upper frames.
Saddle height adjusts to fine-tune the amount of weight-bearing support during gait. Adjustment range: Large: 8½”, Med: 8½”, Small: 5½”
Saddle angle is adjustable to position the pelvis in anterior or posterior tilt for the most effective gait pattern.
Adjustment range: Large: 15° forward and 15° back Med/Small: 7° forward and 7° back
Saddle depth adjusts to optimally position the pelvis in relation to the upper body to encourage weight-bearing and forward motion during ambulation.
Adjustment range: Large: 5″, Med/Small: 4″
Infinite control for effective movement
The Pacer casters’ five functions let you fine-tune the Pacer’s movement as your clients gain control.
Made with the same material used in automotive brakes, our variable drag feature gives you greater control with the simple twist of a dial.
Foot-activated swivel locks on each caster make the Pacer easier to steer.
Prevent involuntary backward movement with the one-way directional lock featured on each caster.
A measurable improvement
The odometer, available as an option on every Pacer base, records a client’s progress in either feet or meters. No more counting tiles!
The detachable upper frame makes it easy to stow and transport the Pacer. Separable components allow you to bring the right base for each client and every setting.
The new Pacer chest pad and handlebars form a lightweight configuration perfect for lower GMFCS levels. Available for small, medium and large Pacer sizes, these components allow easy transfers and quick adjustment.
Posterior positioning is a natural progression towards independent movement, and it gives the users improved access to their environment.
Note: The standard base is recommended for posterior positioning. When the utility base is reversed, steering is more difficult and the directional lock feature will not work.
Reverse the MPS
The MPS has been designed to allow reverse positioning of the saddle, which enables gait practice with the frame in the posterior position. For instructions on how to place the MPS in the posterior position.
Easy-rolling over thresholds or thick carpet (or even outdoors on gravel or grass) is now yours with the large-wheeled utility base, letting you go places you never could before.
Now you can use your Pacer on the treadmill. Available in two widths, these bases straddle almost any treadmill and can be used with the large, medium and small upper frames. It’s not just for treadmill use; overground this base provides all the functions of our standard base but with increased width for better stability.
