Pacer Gait Trainer – Mini & S

Providing outstanding support in learning to walk


Use the slides below to learn more about the features of the Rifton Pacer gait trainer.

Prompts attach anywhere

  • Prompts and supports – such as armrests 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 Pacer to be easily adapted to a successive client's needs in a school or in an institution.

  • Press the clamp button to adjust each prompt in 1" increments.

Posterior positioning

  • 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.

Innovative casters

  • 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.

  • 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.
