Paddling for the Disabled – Links
Chosen Valley Creating Ability – They have seating, kayaks and hand adaptors
It’s one thing to be able to hold a paddle, and another thing to be able to pull it through the water. They manufacture a range of adaptations designed to provide the grip you need while still enabling you to drop the paddle quickly. All of the grips mount to standard kayak paddles with a 1-1/4″ shaft diameter.
