The Rifton TRAM is a transfer and mobility device that combines gait training, sit-to-stand transfers, and seated transfers into a single compact item. It has been built with the client’s safety in mind, and the design is focused on convenience and dignity.
The TRAM frame is lightweight and easy to operate, particularly in confined environments. It has easy to use controls and adjustments, and the body support system limits the amount of lifting carer’s need to do themselves, lowering the risk of injury or back pain. The TRAM has a strong battery that can deliver more than 70 lifts on a single charge and it has a built in scale so you can weigh your client while making transfers, if necessary.
The TRAM is an innovative, patented support system that secures the patient with a simple buckle, and there are no slings and little preparation. It features a built-in up and down switch that is incorporated into the right steering handle; and it has a meticulously built telescoping lift column, which gives users the security and dignity of unimpeded eye contact with their carers and surroundings.
The TRAM can be elevated to a height of 6’4” and is suitable for people up to 159 kilograms. It can also be lowered for compact storage and will easily fit through a doorway up to 28” wide. There’s a low base option that has a 3″ caster and a lower frame base than the standard Rifton TRAM, and it slides under mattresses with as little as 414″ clearance. This alternative was created for situations where the normal TRAM would be impractical for storage, such as under hospital beds.
