Get a grip on your kayak paddle with these adaptations. The hand and wrist adaptations allow you to grip your kayak paddle but also release when you need to.

There are two adaptations available and they can be used in combination with each other, either as two hand adaptations or a hand and wrist adaptation.

Hand Adaptation

This back-of-the-hand grip is designed for use by those who have some hand function and can grip the paddle shaft on their own, but need a bit more support. The adaptation takes lifting pressure off of the fingers and places it on the arms. The height is adjustable and the end is open to allow for proper pressure without inhibiting release.

Wrist Adaptation

For those who are not able to grasp the paddle shaft, we designed a two-part system. A wristband is worn on the wrist and an attachment plate is mounted to the paddle shaft. The wristband then slides into the paddle attachment, allowing full power, rotation and control without releasing. However, it releases easily by sliding the hand out, maximizing safety.

Combination of Hand and Wrist Adaptations

If you have less function in your hands then you may find that combining the adaptations will help you to get a better grip on the kayak paddle.

if you don't have grip then you may need hand and wrist grips

 

The hand and wrist adaptations can be used together if you are able to wrap your fingers around the paddle but need support to hold it in place.

 

 

 

to help your hands fold around use two kayak hand attachments

 

If you need more support for your fingers you can use two of the hand adaptations, one over your hand and one over your fingers, to help you to grasp the paddle.
