Lift. Ambulate. Transfer.

Note: the price shown is for the most basic configuration of the TRAM. Optional accessories will be an additional charge.

The TRAM is a transfer and mobility device designed to deliver three powerful functions in one compact unit: gait training, sit-to-stand transfers and seated transfers.

The TRAM offers far more utility than a standard patient lift at a remarkably low price.

The Benefits:

  • An ultralight compact frame that’s easy to maneuver in tight spaces
  • vIntuitive 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 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

Capable of lifting and transferring patients of varying abilities and body types, the TRAM features an innovative, patented 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.


  • Body support system - The 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" walking client and then retract down to 43.5" for compact storage.
  • Expanding legs - 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 a mobile, yet secure piece of patient transfer equipment.
  • Colour-coded clips - Caregivers can quickly hook the metal rings into one of the TRAM’s four color-coded clips. The clips have been color-coded for positive identification in written protocols.
  • Low-base option - With a 3" 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 4¼" clearance. This option was designed for care environments where hospital bed floor clearance would hinder use of the standard TRAM.

Optional accessories:

  • Scale
  • Switch pole
  • Forearm supports
  • Arm platforms
  • Pelvic support
  • Hip positioner
  • Additional battery
  • Additional thigh straps
  • Swivel locks
  • Removable back belt
