Foldable frame & easy rear access
The folded frame can fit in most car boots. (Mini and small Rifton Pacer walkers fit in most boots without folding.)
Medium (K502), large (K503) and XL (K504) Rifton Pacer walkers fold for storage or transport, and can fit in most car trunks. To fit the frame in your boot, some accessories may have to be removed. Use the black, two-handed release catches to fold or unlock the frame.
The Rifton Pacer walker is designed for easy rear access to make transfers into and out of this mobility walking aid as smooth as possible, whether the client will face forwards or backwards in the frame.
The frame’s top bar should be at waist height. Choose a frame that will allow for growth, if applicable.
Rifton Pacer gait trainer mobility walking frames are height adjustable in 1″/2.5 cm increments, with no tools needed. The frame’s top bar should be set to the client’s waist height. (The mini (K509) Pacer frame is not height adjustable, but hand loops, handholds, or arm prompts can be height-adjusted to meet the child’s needs.)
Swivel lock: Each caster swivel-locks independently. Lock all 4 to help clients walk in a straight line, or just the two rear casters to eliminate drifting sideways. Release swivel lock on all casters for movement in any direction.
One-way ratchet control: Set each caster to prevent involuntary backward movement. Works best when casters are also swivel-locked.
Innovative casters have separate swivel lock, brake, variable drag, and one-way ratchet control features. Use any combination to control the Rifton Pacer walker’s speed and direction.
Variable drag: Use this to slow down fast-moving clients, prevent veering, or help clients navigate corners. Vary the drag by rotating the dial from zero to max.
Brakes: Independent of the drag function. To apply, depress bottom half of white brake pedal; to release, press top half.
Taking off is easy in the XL Pacer in the posterior position.
Clients can be placed in the posterior position while gait training in the Pacer. Prompts and supports can be reversed and moved along the top bar of the frame to whichever position best matches the client’s needs.
Prompts attach anywhere
Press the clamp button to adjust each prompt in 1″/2.5 cm increments.
Prompts and supports—such as arm rests and chest support—attach anywhere along the Pacer frame’s top bar, and are easily removed when a client no longer needs them. This feature also allows the Rifton Pacer walker to be easily adapted to a successive client’s needs in a school or institution setting.
Carmakers believe in the long-term benefits of baked-on powder coating. So do we. Designed to stand up to wind and weather, our colors also conform to American and European toy safety standards. Our Pacer gait trainer is available in 6 colors: blue, red, lime, champagne, raspberry and purple.
