Packrafting has the potential to be the most accessible paddle sport for people with limited lower limb mobility. They pack down really small, can be transported on your lap, inflated at the edge of the water and are easy to move once inflated.
Packrafts come with a number of inflatable supports that have proved highly effective for wheelchair users.
Is this the water sport for you?
