Rifton Pacer Gait Trainer
The therapist inspired gait training system.
Gait training has come a long way since we introduced our first model in the 1980s. Over the years our customers have faithfully delivered design suggestions. Now, we’re proud to respond with the redesigned Pacer. We know you’ll see your ideas reflected in this newly imagined gait trainer.
Dynamic. Ready to go everywhere.
Walking is a complex function. When we talk about dynamic gait training we refer to the often unobserved but significant shifts of body and weight that occur in typical gait patterns. In the therapy community there is a growing consensus that a well-positioned pelvis in combination with dynamic movement is critical to successful gait training. A specialized gait trainer, like the Pacer, helps achieve this proper positioning and provides the dynamic weight-bearing and weight-shifting needed for a more natural gait pattern and easier stepping.
It’s a system comprising an upper frame with a choice of bases to accommodate clients with a broad range of abilities in a variety of settings. Everything about Rifton Pacers encourages progress for clients so nothing stands between them and the places they want to go. And like all of our products, the Pacer comes with the quality and dependability you rely on from Rifton.
The Rifton Pacer Gait Trainer is available in five colours: Pink, Red, Blue, Lime or Grey
“I just tried our first kiddo in the dynamic portion of the pacer and he did great! He has had the pacer for a few years and needs mod assist for progression. Today he walked much further than I can ever remember (I’ve been working with him for 5 years) with less assist and for a greater distance. When we finished he said it was easier than his walker and he could go faster. Two thumbs up from the first trial!”
