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.
Hand Adaptation On Paddle
Mounts on any paddle shaft with an expandable band. Sold in pairs or individually.
Hand Adaptation In Use
Pressure on the hand is simple to adjust and the adaptation can be mounted with the open end in either direction.
Wrist Adaptation On Paddle
Mounts on any paddle shaft with expandable bands. Sold in pairs or individually. If ordering individually, please specify left or right.
Wrist Adaptation In Use
The disk on wristband drops into a keyhole slot on the paddle adaptation. Power and control can be applied even without grasping the paddle shaft.
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.
The combination of our Universal Base with this pivoted paddle adaption allows one-arm control of the kayak. It also provides support to completely remove the weight of the paddle from the paddler's arms when using both arms. The pivot assembly snaps onto any paddle shaft. The paddle and pivot assembly lift out of the base for ease of entry and safety in the event of a wet exit.
Paddle Pivot In Kayak
The Universal Base can be temporarily or permanently mounted, and the pivot point can be adjusted for various arm lengths.
Paddle Pivot Components
The Universal Base is designed to fit in any kayak bottom, and the pivot can be snapped onto any paddle.
