Use the slides below to learn more about the accessories available to customize the Rifton HTS to an adaptive toilet chair, a freestanding commode or shower unit to meet your client's needs. Looking for help with client-assist transfers? Don't miss the Rifton Support Station.
Integral skin foam pads are waterproof, cushioned and easily removed for disinfecting.
The unique design of the seat pad opening – open to the rear – facilitates access for caregivers to perform the necessary cleaning.
An optional design features a closed seat back and narrower hole, designed for users who need more support when sitting.

The curved headrest provides support for clients with limited head control and adjusts in several directions: height, A/P positioning, up or down.
Tilting the headrest backward allows for comfortable showering and hair washing.

When adjusted to fit snugly and comfortably, the butterfly harness provides maximum anterior support – and thus safety, security and freedom of movement – for clients who have limited trunk control while sitting.

The padded anterior support/tray promotes the forward-leaning positioning that, according to research, best facilitates the toileting process.

Independently adjustable lateral supports secure children with limited trunk control. Supports come in two sizes, small or large.
With the addition of a wide chest strap to the lateral supports, clients without upper torso control gain added trunk support and security to help correct spinal alignment.

The hip guides tailor the chair to the size and shape of each client, allowing for years of continual use as the child grows…
…or use of a single chair with multiple children.

The pan facilitates off-toilet functionality with its generous capacity.
The pan’s durable plastic construction makes cleaning simple.
The pan attaches to the Rifton HTS by sliding in from the back. Its extra depth insures it will not spill, even when the chair is tilted.
The bowl adapter accommodates situations where the hole in the HTS isn’t fully over the hole in the toilet.
Inserted at the front edge of the hole under the seat pad, the bowl adapter ensures accurate positioning of the HTS over a wall-hung toilet. It can also be used with the large HTS to create a secure fit over a round-front toilet.
Deflectors keep caregivers and clients clean during urination.
Options include a low deflector built into the seat cover,
a removable soft standard deflector (which requires the seat pad for mounting)
and a splash guard that is held in place by the seat belt.
Removable deflectors are easy to attach.
The soft plastic of the splash guard is comfortable for the client while providing an extra measure of security for the caregiver.
By separating the knees and helping to control leg muscles, the abductor prevents scissoring of the legs and promotes good joint and body alignment.
Made of soft skin foam, it also connects to the standard deflector to maintain cleanliness during urination.
The abductor attaches easily to the Rifton HTS.
Ankle straps attach to the footboard.
Ankle straps secure the feet of those with limited muscle control and excursion movement, enabling a moderate range of movement while improving independence in postural control.
The attachable calf rest enhances the client’s comfort and sense of security when the footboard is extended and angled upward.
The footboard supports client’s feet at the optimal height and angle.
The footboard adjusts to five heights in 1” increments.
The footboard offers four angle settings.
Flipping the footboard up allows the client room for sit-to-stand transfers.
The tub base adds even more versatility to the already versatile Rifton HTS. The small and medium Rifton HTS seats attach to the tub base for comfortable showering and hair washing in the bathtub, eliminating the need to purchase a separate showering chair.
The reduced footprint accommodates narrow and wide tub bottoms alike. Note: the tube base is not intended as a primary base.

The portability kit gives children greater independence – and their families greater freedom to travel – by enabling them to take the Rifton HTS on the road. Eliminates contact with public toilets for better hygiene.
Lightweight folding frame and carry bag (for small and medium sizes) make toileting possible while traveling.
