Out on the market today are a variety of floor based lift equipment, transfer devices, gait trainers, and hoyer lifts. How do you know what is the right one for you? How do you choose between all the options out there? Where can you see one to test it out? It is a tough decision and if you get something that doesn’t meet your needs you are now out quite a bit of money.
To help you out in the decision making process let’s take a look at the Rifton Tram. And you might be asking yourself why the Rifton Tram? What is so special about this one compared to the others? Well let me tell you why this is one of our favorite pieces of lift equipment out on the market today. You will want to read this!
The Rifton Tram is a transfer and mobility device designed for the safety, convenience and dignity of both the individual and caregiver. Offering more options for less cost, the TRAM performs seated transfers and raises an individual for standing and supported ambulation, or walking. More than a patient lift system, the Rifton Tram combines three powerful functions in one device: gait training, sit-to-stand transfers, and seated transfers. There isn’t another piece of lift equipment on the market today that combines all these features into one. For most companies you would have to have three separate devices to do everything the Rifton Tram does in one!
Let’s look at some additional features of the Tram.
- It has an ultralight compact frame that’s easy to maneuver in tight spaces. It can fit into a 24” doorway with no problem.
- It has a 350-pound weight capacity and a powerful battery drive that can deliver over 70 lifts on a single charge.
- The body support system helps eliminates any lifting by the caregiver or family member, reducing back strain and any injuries.
- There is also an optional built-in scale, allowing you to weigh your client or family member while performing a transfer.
As you can see the Rifton Tram lift equipment has some great features to offer with the device. It is safe, easy to use, light weight, and offers you three functions in one. I honestly can’t think of a better piece of lift equipment to meet multiple needs. Another great part is if you are in the Phoenix, Tempe, or Scottsdale area you can come down to our office and try it out for yourself. That is right; we have the Rifton Tram device on our showroom floor for people to try out.
