Innovative Activity #2
I found a really interesting website promoting wheelchair water skiing. The Patricia Neal Innovative Recreation water skiing program provides individuals in wheelchairs the opportunity to participate in this thrilling water sport. The individual is first transferred from their own wheelchair into the water chair. The chair in made out of metal but it has buoyant rubber wheels. The individual then goes down the ramp and the chair always floats, so they really don't have to worry about sinking or "getting up". Depending on the individuals comfort level, the boat may travel at a desired speed. This sounds absolutely amazing and something that I would love participating in sometime in the near future.
