"Ben has spastic quadriplegia and was unable to move in his old Pacer gait trainer. I recently ordered him a new dynamic gait trainer with a multi-position saddle and he now walks the entire length of the high school gym and back. He is comfortable and proud of himself. I think Rifton Equipment is the best made and helps our student to become as independent as possible while being safe and properly supported."

Why dynamic?
Walking is complex. 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.

The Pacer

The Pacer, because it can be configured in so many ways, can accommodate clients of every ability, in any environment. Everything about the Pacer encourages progress for clients so nothing stands between them and the places they want to go. It’s the versatility and dependability you’ve come to expect from Rifton.

The Pacer is easily configured to meet your client’s every need. Choose between dynamic and standard upper frames and pair them with standard, utility and treadmill/stability bases.

Dynamic Upper Frame provides dynamic weight-shifting and dynamic body-weight support, encouraging natural gait patterns.

Standard Upper Frame is a great choice for clients who do not need dynamic movement. It accommodates all the Rifton prompts you‘re familiar with.

Treadmill/Stability Base designed to accommodate most treadmills, this base lets a client practice stepping on a treadmill before progressing to overground ambulation.
