Rifton Pacer Gait Trainers – M, L & XL

Dynamic.
Ready to go everywhere.

Gait training has come a long way since we introduced our first model in the 1980s. And 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. Download the New Rifton Pacer brochure.

Why dynamic?

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 new Rifton 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 new Pacer comes with the quality and dependability you rely on from Rifton.
