Environment: Feeling Right at Home
Transfers aren’t the only things
that get tougher as kids reach
their tweens and teens. So does
gaining access into walking
devices. Rifton’s TRAM performs
multiple functions to assist with
transfers and support ambulation.
The circumferential body support
holds the tween’s or teen’s
trunk in an upright position,
while easy-to-attach thigh
straps comfortably hold the
weight of his or her legs.
The result is a simple seat-to-seat transfer. And the TRAM supports ambulation
via the walking saddle. A tween with a chest height of just 30.5" when standing
can comfortably walk with the TRAM — and the TRAM keeps supporting kids
up to 6'4".
Why It’s for Tweens & Teens: The body support can snug up as small as a
22" girth, but it can also hold someone with as much as a 60" girth. The TRAM’s
weight capacity is 350 lbs.
