Safety Oar

Most prosthetics on the market today rely on an outdated “rubber sock and wooden shoe” technology. They are cumbersome to put on, uncomfortable to wear for a prolonged period of time, and perform poorly under various circumstances, particularly suspension force. Adaptive rowing requires a dynamic connection between the rower and oar, providing strength, stability and breathability. The problem is complicated by the dangers of tethering a rower to his or her oar. If the oar is overtaken by the force of water, causing the rower to lose control of the oar, the rower may be ejected from the boat.

How might we instill confidence in an adaptive rower, both in terms of their prosthetic as well as their well being while out on the water?
