Rifton Tram

Three powerful functions in one device!

Choosing the right mobility device for gait training, sit-to-stand and seated transfers can be a bit daunting, but The Rifton TRAM makes it easy when you compare all the benefits.

The Rifton TRAM is a transfer and mobility device designed to deliver three powerful functions in one compact unit: Gait training, sit-to-stand transfers and seated transfers. Capable of lifting and transferring patients of varying abilities and body types – up to 159 kilograms - the TRAM features an innovative, patented support system that secures the patient with a simple buckle. This enables the caregiver to quickly prepare the client for a safe transfer. At just over 32 kg, the TRAM’s compact, ultralight frame is manoeuvrable in small or confined areas, as well as simple to transport or store. The TRAM’s intelligent engineering significantly reduces back strain and stress – providing a smarter and safer environment for workers.

Here’s what clients have had to say about the TRAM:

“We love using the Rifton TRAM in our rehab department. Although we have other gait trainers, we find the TRAM gives patients much more room for ambulation. We looked at another body-weight supported system but were turned off by the high price tag.”
Matthew Palmer

“What impressed me about the TRAM is that it serves a real need. It’s a clever and thoughtful use of existing technology that really empowers both the patient and caregiver. I haven’t seen anything this innovative in adaptive equipment in a long time.”
Steven Wilcox

“The TRAM has been an answer to prayer for us. I can provide all my husband’s care on my own. My husband feels secure and comfortable as I move him, and there’s no more back strain for me! It is an amazing piece of equipment and meets our needs to safely transfer him from one chair to another and into and out of bed. We could not be happier. ”
Darlene R

Here’s how it works:

  1. Gait training
    Equipped with a comfortable walking saddle, the TRAM provides safe, supported ambulation without using additional floor space or staff. The saddle eliminates a patient’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 essential for the home or institution.
  2. Sit-to-stand transfers
    The ability to transition between sitting and standing is critical for a client’s independence and health. The TRAM’s walking saddle makes it safer and easier for a caregiver to assist a client with movement – regardless of the caregiver’s or patient’s size.
  3. Seated transfers
    A carefully engineered telescoping lift column gives the TRAM its low profile, providing clients with the security and dignity of unobstructed eye contact with their caregivers and surroundings.
