MPS Posterior Adjustment
Watch this video to learn how to quickly and easily reverse the Multi Positioning Saddle (MPS) of the Rifton Pacer when using it as a posterior walker.
Standing with the E-Pacer
Watch this video to learn how to safely transfer and position the patient in the E-Pacer, so that they can facilitate knee, hip and back extension while keeping good posture and standing.
Walking with the E-Pacer
Most patients with severe hemiplegia have difficulty moving or advancing the affected limb during swing phase as well as difficulty bearing weight during stance phase. Because the arm on the weak side is usually affected as well as the leg, patients often lack the grip necessary to use a walker for support. With the Rifton E-Pacer, a rolling stool, a knee brace, and a strap known as a Husky Hang-All, which contains a carabiner, a patient can overcome these obstacles and begin walking much sooner. Watch the video to learn more.
This video is an introduction to a series educating therapists how to use the E-Pacer in Inpatient Rehabilitation for patients with acute onset hemiplegia.

Over the past few years, we've had many requests for a simple chair for mildly involved students, for students with autism spectrum disorder, and we decided to redesign the Compass Chair.
