Quick Links

Torn rotator cuffs, physical disabilities or limited upper body strength don’t have to keep you from paddling. Our goal is getting people out on the water who didn’t think they had the strength or endurance to kayak and keeping experienced paddlers there longer! By supporting the weight of the paddle and using a smaller range of motion, our mount-supported Versa paddle and Gamut Paddle Holder reduce stress on shoulders, wrists and other joints. They are a “must have” for adaptive paddling programs, accessible parks, disabled veterans, physical therapy programs, or anyone who wants to enjoy the beauty of nature but may have been limited by injury, ability, health condition or age.

Overview

By supporting the weight of your paddle, the Gamut Paddle Holder reduces stress on your shoulders, back and joints. This makes Gamut well-suited for paddlers with rotator cuff injuries or other upper body physical limitations. The mount attaches to many (but not all) sit-on-top kayaks. Its rotating head creates a fluid, energy-efficient motion and lets paddlers use their own paddle. Anglers love it because they can simply "let go" and their paddle stays in place.
Customers love our mount-supported Versa paddle but wanted to be able to use their own favorite paddle, so we developed the Gamut Paddle Holder. Gamut comes with either a plate mount or a post and spline mount that attaches to select sit-on-top kayaks in about 15 minutes and can be removed when not in use. Paddles of 220 cm or more in length are generally recommended. Our customers include people who’ve had major rotator cuff surgery, paddlers with one arm, kayak anglers, disabled military veterans and people with a host of injuries or disabilities (e.g., tendonitis, SCI, paralysis, cerebral palsy). NOTE: If you have the choice of choosing the Gamut for either a sit-in kayak or a sit-on-top kayak, we recommend using Gamut sit-in kayaks whenever possible as it provides maximum stability.

What Users Are Saying

By the time I got back in, I still felt like I could paddle even longer, whereas in the past I'd get back to shore and be pretty much spent.
