One Handed Outdoor Recreation


Regaining independence following a stroke doesn’t just mean that you have learned how to tie your shoes or chop an onion with one hand, it also means once again being able to enjoy the recreational things you used to do before your stroke. If you love the peace and quiet of fishing and having figured out how to continue that hobby with one sided weakness then the following two websites are for you.

The first link will take you to a website called Shelton Products where you can purchase fishing poles adapted for individuals with a variety of disabilities. Their site also contains explanations of how to use their products to maximize your fishing experience.

This second link, Adaptive Outdoorsman, offers adaptive products for fishing as well as hunting and even an easy to use tent. If you’ve been itching to get back to your outdoorsy life, these products might be just what you’re looking for!



Recreation and More

The following site is another blog titled “Single Handed Living” by David Layton, a stroke survivor. His site contains several suggestions of adapted recreational activities, exercises, music and other hobbies for people affected by one sided weakness. You can also find other dressing tips and mobility aids that David has found helpful!
