You only need to take a look at the Paralympic Games every four years to see that having any kind of disability means you are unable to participate in exhilarating and testing sports. Whether you have sight problems, mobility issues or are wheelchair-bound, there is always something that you can try to see if you find a new passion.
Here at Balance Mobility, we are committed to matching people up with the equipment and apparatus that allows them to live life more easily and independently, and that includes participating in sport in wheelchairs on the Gold Coast. With that in mind, here are some of the most popular adventure sports recommended for people with disabilities.
Sailing is a great test for people with limited motion who still have a high degree of upper bod strength. It can be really exhilarating to get out on the water with supervision and feel the power of being able to direct a boat’s sail with your muscles. It brings a new meaning to motion and speed!
- Scuba Diving
Believe it or not, scuba diving is becoming a very popular activity for many mobility affected people. The overall feeling of weightlessness that the water provides can be fantastic for those who have disabilities.
Thanks to modern innovations and the presence of expertly trained guides, skiing is something that people with any level of disability can enjoy. There is nothing like the feeling of cold air in your hair as you speed down a slope.
- Mountain Biking
Did you know that there are specially designed four wheel mountain bikes that allow people with balance and mobility issues to be able to experience the thrill of real mountain biking? There are many purpose-built trails across the country that are designed to be safe for disabled biking whilst also being challenging and rustic enough to provide that classic thrill.
So, if you are interested in disabled sports and need advice on wheelchairs on the Gold Coast, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us here at Balance Mobility. We have lots of experience and expertise in this area and any member of our dedicated team will be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have. We very much look forward to being able to open you up to a whole new world of sport that you might have thought was closed to you.
