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, joint stiffness or other upper body physical limitations. Gamut's support mount attaches to most sit-in kayaks and can be easily removed when not in use. The rotating head delivers a fluid, energy efficient motion and lets paddlers use their own favorite paddle.
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 a hinged mount that attaches to most sit-in kayaks in about 15 minutes and can be removed when not in use. The system uses YakAttack's RotoGrips to hold your paddle (round or oval shaft) in place between two soft rollers. 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).

Gamut gets people out on the water who might not normally be able to paddle. It's great for people with disabilities, older adults with limited strength, or experienced kayakers with shoulder injuries. The system is perfect for paddlers who want to enjoy the fluid, energy-efficient benefits of a supported paddle but want to keep using their own favorite paddle.

What Users Are Saying

I had major shoulder surgery from a torn labrum. The extra stability of the post supporting the weight of the paddle made all the difference. It wasn’t a power issue, but a “lifting up” issue. With Gamut, I never skipped a beat, and I can paddle like crazy.
