An innovative device intelligently engineered to provide quick, safe, dignified transfers and mobility, the Rifton TRAM features: an ultralight compact frame that’s easy to maneuver in tight spaces, intuitive controls and adjustments, making it simple for a single caregiver to operate, a body support system that eliminates any lifting by the caregiver, reducing back strain and workplace injuries, 350-pound (158.76 kg) weight capacity and a powerful battery drive that can deliver over 70 lifts on a single charge, an optional built-in scale, allowing you to weigh your client while performing a routine transfer, standard or Low-base.

Gold medal winner at the prestigious Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA)


Body Support System

Rifton’s TRAM features an innovative support system that secures the patient with a simple buckle. This simplicity enables the caregiver to prepare the patient quickly for a safe transfer. Unlike other patient transfer devices, the TRAM has no slings and requires little or no preparation to transfer clients.


Optional Scale

The TRAM’s optional scale allows the caregiver to weigh a patient easily during transfer, as well as measure weight-bearing capability and progress, during supported ambulation. Note: Purchasers must decide on the scale option at the time of purchase.


Built-in Up & Down Switch

Raise and lower the TRAM using the single button built into the right steering handle. When the TRAM is being used as a sit to stand device, the caregiver can pull back on the handle to help raise the patient.


Three Stage Riser

The carefully engineered, telescoping lift column gives the TRAM its low profile providing patients in the transfer device with the security and dignity of unobstructed eye contact with their caregivers and surroundings. The TRAM can be raised high enough to support a 6’4" (193 cm) walking client and then retract down to 43.5" (110.5 cm) for compact storage.


Expanding Legs

Compact and low-profile, the TRAM can pass through a 28" (71.1 cm) doorway with ease. Transfer in and out of the new, wider wheelchairs by rotating the leg expander. Lockable front casters make the TRAM a mobile, yet secure piece of patient transfer equipment.


Color-coded Clips

Caregivers can quickly hook the metal rings into one of the TRAM’s four clips. The clips have been color-coded for positive identification in written protocols.


Low-base Option

With a 3" (7.6 cm) caster and lower frame base, the low-base TRAM does everything the standard Rifton TRAM does, plus it slides under beds with as low as 4.25" (10.8 cm) clearance. This option was designed for care environments where hospital bed floor clearance would hinder use of the standard TRAM.
