    Rifton Low-Base TRAM

    From: $4,400.00
    SKU# RiftonLowBaseTRAM
    Featuring a lower frame profile to accommodate the narrow space beneath complex acute-care beds, the Rifton Low-Base TRAM makes it easier than ever to provide safety and dignity during seated transfers to patients and caregivers alike.

  • Accommodates beds with as low as a 4.25" clearance
  • Performs seated and sit-to-stand transfers
  • Weight Capacity: 350 pounds

  • Directional locks for the casters make it possible to roll the TRAM straight down the hall without drifting laterally. The locks can be inserted into any or all of the four casters, although two should be sufficient to ensure a straight path. With the lock released the casters are free to swivel, allowing for maneuvers in tight spaces. If the TRAM is going to be used for early mobilization in the ICU, directional locks would be advisable.

    * Required Fields



    The Rifton Low-Base TRAM is a transfer and mobility device designed for the safety, convenience and dignity of both patient and caregiver. Offering more utility for less cost, the Rifton TRAM seamlessly performs seated transfers and raises a patient for standing and supported ambulation.

    With a 3” caster and lower frame base, the Rifton Low-Base TRAM does everything the standard Rifton TRAM does, plus it slides under beds with as low as 4.25” clearance. Operable by just one staff member, the low-base TRAM will be able to transfer an acute-care patient out of bed and into a standing position, then support partial or even non-weight-bearing ambulation to achieve early mobility.

    Capable of lifting and transferring patients of varying abilities and body types, the Tram features an innovative, patent-pending, support system that secures the patient with a simple buckle. This enables the caregiver to quickly prepare the patient for a safe transfer.

    At just over seventy pounds, the Tram’s compact, ultralight frame is maneuverable in small or confined areas, as well as simple to transport or store. Quickly adoptable by multiple caregivers, the Tram’s intelligent engineering significantly reduces back
    strain and stress – providing a smarter and safer environment for workers.

    Three Powerful Functions:

    1. Seated Transfers (ideal for toileting) - A carefully engineered telescoping lift column gives the Tram its low profile, providing patients with the security and dignity of unobstructed eye contact with their caregivers and surroundings. The single most frequently cited reason for entering assisted living is toileting difficulties. The Tram makes toilet transfers safe and quick for the caregiver or spouse. Furthermore, its versatility makes the Tram the perfect sit-to-stand solution for the patient who needs help getting up or support while walking.
    2. Sit-to-Stand Transfers - The ability to transition between sitting and standing is critical for a patient’s independence and health. The Tram’s walking saddle makes it easy for a caregiver to assist a patient with movement – regardless of the caregiver or patient’s size. With the Tram, the transition from sitting to standing, and back down again, is both safe and simple.
    3. Supported Ambulation - Equipped with a comfortable walking saddle, the Tram provides safe, supported ambulation without using additional floor space or staff. The saddle eliminates a patient’s fear of falling, allowing for increased focus on essential tasks, while maintaining or regaining the ability to walk. Whether for daily exercise or more demanding rehab, the Tram’s combined sit-to-stand and supported walking functions make it essential equipment for the home or institution.


    • Body Support System - secures the patient with a simple buckle. It enables the caregiver to prepare the patient quickly for safe transfer.
    • Color Coded Clips - Caregivers can quickly hook the metal rings into one of the Tram's four clips.
    • Built-in up/down Switch - Raise and lower the Tram using the single button built into the right steering handle.
    • Leg Expander - Compact and low profile, the Tram can pass through a 28" doorway with ease. Transfer in and out of the new, wider wheelchairs by rotating the leg expander. Lockable front casters make the Tram mobile, yet secure.
    • Three Stage Riser - Telescoping lift column gives the Tram its low profile, providing patients with the security and dignity of unobstructed eye contact with their caregivers and surroundings. The Tram can be raised high enough to support a 76" walking client and then retract down to 43.5" for compact storage.
    • Includes one battery, one battery charger, accessories tote & charger power cord **(International power cords available on request)
