PlayPower’s accessible transfer system for kayaks and canoes (with related video)
An accessible transfer system has been added to EZ Dock’s launch product for kayaks and canoes. The company’s original launch system was built specifically for paddlers, making it simple and safe to board, launch and recover kayaks and canoes from waterfront properties. A roller and guide rail system allows users of all ability levels to glide on and off, while providing foot space on both sides for access and stability. The launch system is modular, making it adaptable to any location. It can be used with a current EZ Dock system or with an existing traditional dock, and it requires a few tools and minimal time to install.
The accessible transfer system adds an enhanced feature to provide greater accessibility for people of all abilities. This feature offers a transfer bench with choices of variable heights for transfer from different wheelchairs and two transfer slide boards to accommodate different watercraft heights. The transfer slide board lands securely on a railing system that stabilizes it and provides grab bar transfer assistance for easy slide movement. The transfer system provides individuals with disabilities universal accessibility that exceeds the minimum requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The transfer bench system has applications for parks, camps or other recreational waterfront settings to provide inclusive, universal access for individuals of all abilities.
