Angle Oar offers two mounted paddle systems to make recreational, adaptive kayaking much easier for people with limited arm motion or stamina.
The first, Versa, features a paddle that can be kept straight or angled in a sort-of tee-pee shape, which allows for much less range of motion. The mount lifts upward to make getting into the kayak a bit easier, and the unit can be removed with a pin. The second, Gamut, uses YakAttack RotoGrips to hold the kayaker’s own paddle between two soft rollers. It’s positioned between the legs, so is not recommended for kayaks that have built-in cup holders or other such features in the center of the boat.
Sit-in kayaks use a hinged mount that attaches on the cockpit rim and sit-on-tops use a plate mount that is secured to the kayak’s floor. For more info, including a list of most compatible kayaks, go to www.angleoar.com.
