LIVE YOUR LIFE
about RAD GEAR BOX
The prototype Gear Box will be based in Squamish BC, given that our home accesses water, snow, and trail sports. It will be fitted with a wheelchair-friendly, height-adjustable work bench supplied with tools to repair and customize equipment.
This gear includes:
- Access Trax - a portable path system which grants wheel and walker access over sandy, rough, or slippery terrain
- Mountain Trike - an all-terrain wheelchair
- Wave Ski - a sit on top surf board
- Adaptive Kayaks
- Handcycyles of varying sizes and styles
...and many more adaptive outdoor toys!
The goal is to make adventure accessible both physically and financially.
The equipment will be available for rent at an affordable cost so that our wild region can be toured by everyone!
Are you aging? Recovering from an injury? Or learning to live with a paralyzing one? This does not have to mean an end to your active, outdoor lifestyle! There are many mobility assisting devices available to help independent individuals living with a new (or lifelong) mobility challenge to access recreation and outdoor activities.
The problem is that these devices are disgustingly expensive --seriously, these things make ski-racing look cheap! - which is where we come in:
RAD Recreation Adaptive Society gives individuals with short-term and permanent mobility challenges who live in or are visiting BC the ability to rent adaptive equipment so that you can ski, snowboard, paddle-board, bike, wake-surf, and hike without having to re-mortgage your home, your mom's home, and work 10 extra jobs.
We weren't kidding. This stuff's expensive. You might have to re-mortgage grandpa's house too, and switch your dog back to a gluten-based diet.
But, thanks to the generous donations of our communities, you don't have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on multiple pieces of equipment, instead, you can rent what you need, when you need. For example, try out the free-wheel attachment or the Mountain Trike shown below (quad controls COMING SOON).
THE MOUNTAIN TRIKE!
This piece of adaptive equipment will get you out into nature - extreme or not!
ATTEND AN EVENT
We are able to provide adaptive recreation equipment because of the generous participation and support of our communities. In addition to private and corporate donations, you and your community can help us achieve our vision by attending our hosting one of our many fundraising events.
