Scale

  • The TRAM’s optional scale allows the caregiver to weigh a patient easily during a routine transfer, as well as measuring the weight they're bearing during gait training.

    Note: The scale must be included in the original purchase. It cannot be added later.

  • If the scale is paired with a tablet or phone via Bluetooth, the Gait Tracker App can track the client’s weight bearing progress. Available for Android or iOS devices.

    Watch the Gait Tracker App video to learn more.

  • A smartphone or tablet can then be attached to the E-Pacer’s handhold using a bike handlebar mount, allowing the client to see their progress.

Switch pole

  • The switch pole lets a caregiver operate the electric lift without bending down (when not using the front handle).

  • The switch pole can also be turned around to give the client control of the lift.

Arm Prompts

  • Arm prompts provide lifting support for clients who have low tone or need their arms secured. The arm prompts allow adjustments in every direction and angle to accommodate numerous positioning requirements.

    Arm prompt dimensions:
    Padded surface area: small: 4½" x 7" large: 5" x 8½"
    Range of adjustment (elbow to fist):
    small: 8"–12½" large: 10½"–16"

Arm platforms

  • Arm platforms offer a simple alternative for clients who need less arm positioning. They attach to our adjustable arm prompt base and are made of closed-cell molded foam for padded comfort and easy cleaning. Arm platforms are available with or without handgrips.

    Padded surface dimensions: 13½"x 5½"

  • Arm platforms with handgrips.

Pelvic support

  • The pelvic support, available in three sizes, is used for sit-to-stand transfers and supported ambulation. Quickly hook up the pelvic support by attaching the rings to the color-coded clips. Note that the pelvic support may fit the patient best when the straps are crossed as shown in the photo. As well as providing support for ambulation, the pelvic support makes the TRAM an excellent device to provide early mobility in the ICU and for ICU physical therapy after a stroke.

  • Key user dimension: (indicated by the u-shaped arrow in the photograph)

    Half of thigh circumference:
    Small: 6" - 10"
    Medium: 8" - 14"
    Large: 10" - 18"

Hip positioner

  • The hip positioner is designed to encourage good positioning for gait training. It enables natural pelvic movement and lower extremity weight-shifting, and provides good abduction.

  • A pad is available for extra comfort.

Additional battery

  • An additional battery may be needed in settings where frequent transfers are being made each day. A fully charged battery should deliver approximately 70 complete lift cycles depending on user weight.

Thigh straps

  • Thigh straps are used to make seated transfers. Choose either narrow (5") or wide (7"), depending on the needs of your client. Additional straps can be purchased for individual clients. Made of water-resistant nylon, the straps can be quickly attached to the TRAM's color-coded clips.

Swivel locks

  • Swivel locks keep the TRAM traveling in a straight line. The locks can be inserted into any or all of the four casters, although two are suffi cient to ensure a straight path. With the locks released, the casters are free to swivel for maneuvering in tight spaces.

  • The swivel lock on a standard TRAM.

  • The swivel lock on a low base TRAM.

Removable back belt

  • For settings where infection control is critical we offer an alternative back belt with a clip at both ends for easy removal and sanitation.

  • Users should note however, that the removable belt adds approximately 4" to the body support circumference at its smallest (from 22" to 26").

    Maximum circumference remains at 60".
