Walking is a complex process. There are significant shifts of body and weight that occur during the walking process. The Rifton Dynamic Pacer gait trainer helps achieve proper positioning and assist dynamic weight bearing and shifting.

Dynamic movement

Walking is a dynamic process – as we walk our bodies make subtle but significant shifts vertically and laterally. During gait training this dynamic movement must be accomodated for to enable truly effective gait training.

The Rifton Dynamic Pacer, with its dynamic upper frame, allows for natural side-to-side and up-and-down movements during walking for a more natural and effective gait pattern.

Choice of two uppers & easy height adjustment

The dynamic upper frame floats three inches up and down and two inches side-to-side, providing dynamic body support.

The standard upper frame is an economical choice for clients who do not need dynamic movement. It’s compatible with the classic Rifton prompts you’ve grown to love.

The column has been indexed for easy marking of positions between clients and sessions.

Versatile in every setting – a system built on three bases

The Dynamic Pacer is available with three different bases – standard, outdoors and a stability/over treadmill base. No matter the environment for training, there’s a base to suit.

Easy positioning & smooth transfers

The Multi-Position Saddle (MPS) is the ultimate positioning accessory for easy transfers and gait training, providing pelvic stability. The MPS can be used for anterior and posterior gait training.

The MPS makes transfers, especially for heavier clients, much easier. With the upper frame and MPS in their lowest positions you can ease seated clients onto the saddle.

Easy to transport

The Rifton Dynamic Pacer’s detachable upper frame is easy to transport. With separable components, you can bring the right base for each client and every situation.
