Upper Frame Options
Dynamic Upper Frame provides dynamic weight-shifting and dynamic body-weight support, encouraging natural gait patterns
Standard Upper Frame is a great choice for clients who do not need dynamic movement.
Standard base is designed to be used on smooth surfaces
Utility base can be used for indoors or outdoors, this base is the best choice for navigating thresholds, lawns, gravel paths or chipped playgrounds. No downhills.
Treadmill/stability base is designed to accommodate most treadmills, this base lets a client practice stepping on a treadmill before progressing to overground ambulation. It’s also a good choice for clients who need a wider, more stable base for gait training.
Arm prompts: Versatile arm prompts include height, rotation, angle, lateral proximity and forward/backward adjustments to accommodate numerous positioning requirements.
Arm platforms: Arm platforms offer a simple alternative for clients who need less arm positioning. Platforms attach to our adjustable arm prompt base and are made of closed-cell molded foam for padded comfort and easy cleaning.
Hand brakes: The hand brakes combine both running and parking brake functions in a simple lever-action control. The brakes attach to the arm prompts and can be quickly removed when not needed.

Multi-position saddle (MPS): Enables precise positioning of the pelvis. Adjustable in five directions to accommodate each client’s posture, the MPS attaches to both the dynamic and standard upper frames.
Pelvic support: For clients who need less abduction, the pelvic support is a softer alternative to the hip positioner. It provides weight-bearing assistance and freedom of movement while clients build strength and stamina.
Hip positioner: Enables natural pelvic movement and lower extremity weight-shifting, and provides good abduction. A pad is available for added comfort.
Thigh prompts: Thigh prompts swing with the user’s stride and prevent leg scissoring. They are adjustable in the medial and lateral directions and prevent the user from turning with the pacer frame.
Ankle prompts: Ankle prompts have comfortably padded ankle straps and spring adjusters to control stride length and placement. Adjust the strap length to determine foot separation and prevent scissoring.
Handholds: Ergonomic handholds are height-adjustable, and can be placed anywhere along the top bar of the frame. Handholds can be used by caregiver or client.
