Rifton Pacer Gait Trainer
The Rifton Pacer gait trainer is a stable, versatile & adjustable walker. In our clinic, we use the Rifton walker to help our patients to become more comfortable standing and then walking. It can be adjusted to offer full support initially and then as you progress and build strength, your physiotherapist is able to gradually decrease the amount of support you receive from the walker.This can be done by removing the safety seat, waist straps, wheel speed and directional constraints. We have found this piece of equipment to be a useful tool in helping our patients get back to walking.
The Rifton trainer is one of many options that we can include in a comprehensive treatment plan to get you back on your feet.
