young man using e-pacer


The gait trainer that lifts

Versatile and powerful.

The E-Pacer is the largest member of the Pacer family. Its sit-to-stand lift functionality removes a major barrier to gait training with large or highly dependent clients.

The E-Pacer combines the powerful electric lift column and secure body support of the TRAM with the key gait training features of the classic Pacer. The result is more than the sum of its parts. The E-Pacer can be a life-changing solution for clients who have grown too large or too dependent to be safely transferred into manual gait trainers. Its strong and stable frame can accommodate users up to 6' 5" and 350 lb.

The Benefits

  • Zero-lift transfers: The E-Pacer can perform the sit-to-stand transfer that is part of every gait training session with no lifting on the part of the caregiver.
  • Gait training with extra stability: The E-Pacer’s strong and rigid frame gives security for heavier or taller clients.
  • Seat-to-seat transfers: Attach the thigh straps to the E-Pacer’s body support system and use the E-Pacer to move a client from a wheelchair to a mat table or other surface for therapy.
  • Expandable legs: Widen the base legs for clients needing extra step width or to get up close to a wheelchair prior to a transfer.
  • Height range: The 26" adjustment range of the E-Pacer’s electric lift column provides great versatility for use with clients of different statures.
  • Built-in scale: the optional Bluetooth-equipped scale and Gait Tracker mobile app measure the load on the body support, allowing caregivers to track a client’s weight-bearing progress over time. Available for Android or iOS devices.
