Adaptive Fishing Rod Holders Adaptive fishing equipment is designed to help people who have arm and hand strength problems enjoy the sport of fishing. While fishing is considered a leisure activity, you must have the strength to grasp a fishing rod in order to play and ultimately land the prize. People with strength and mobility issues need assistance to enjoy the excitement of fishing. Adaptive fishing rod holders are the solution. The Barracuda and Side Winder are two new adaptive fishing rod holders that can provide everything needed for the rigors of disabled fishing. They both were designed by a disabled American veteran who lost the use of his right arm in combat. He loved to fish and couldn’t find a system to fit his needs. The requirements for a rod holder were: comfortable to ware, easy to use, stronger than the fish, and give him the excitement of playing a fish. Both of these adaptive rod holders were engineered to provide the angler with stability and support, comfort, (you can actually wear them all day fishing without discomfort), strength, made from aircraft grade aluminum, stainless steel, and polyurethane webbing with 500 to 700 pound rating.

All modifications are made such as the seat (including a deck-mounted tilt adjust mechanism that allows easy tilt adjustment from outside of the cockpit and gives rock-solid support), hatch mounted outriggers, and removal of anything out of the cockpit that could cause skin injury or cause the paddler to get hung up on wet exits (including removing the foot-pegs and any protruding hardware).Safety is a primary concern, and all modifications ensure the safest experience on the water. For those starting out in adaptive paddling for the first time, try the Kestrel line from Current Designs, especially the open cockpit Kestrel 120OC. This kayak gives the best access for transfers, and is the easiest to exit in the event of a capsize. It is also the most affordable package, starting at around $1500 for the kayak (rotomold version), seat, and outriggers. Any of the Current Designs line is available, and can assist you in making the best model choice for your paddling style and ability. Other brands and models are also available.

Wheelchair Slippers Wheelchair Slippers are tire covers that manual wheelchair users can use to cover the tires so that when they come inside a house, dirt and tire marks are not transferred to floors or carpets. However, since wheelchair slippers are made of an attractive textile material, they are porous and not to be used in a wet or muddy environment. “Mud Eaters” are also available. Mud Eaters are made of non-porous neoprene (the same stuff that deep-sea diver’s wetsuits are made of). Mud Eaters are water-resistant and can be used on wet or muddy wheelchair tires. They have also been tested in a chlorinated swimming pool environment and after several months of use the chlorine did not damage the neoprene. Some swimming pools and spas do not allow wheelchair users to use their own wheelchairs which have been used on the outside. With Mud Eaters, the back tires are covered. Mud Eaters are sort of like those little plastic covers that go on shoes. Both Wheelchair Slippers and Mud Eaters are machine washable.
