Abstract

After finding out about the healing waters program I became interested in how disabled people fished. I googled it and found that there was a very limited selection of devices that aided in fishing. The selected audience I chose was people with low to moderate strength loss in their arms and hands. The product while influences many people including people who fish already and people who want to fish but have been scared there disability will stop them from performing properly. The goal of the project was just to make fishing a little easier for some people. The way of achieving this was a use of a brace and glove that would be fitted with your fishing pole of choice. The Brace assisted in holding the rod and the glove assisted in gripping the reel handles on the rod. The main point that we wanted to be hit was comfort, safety, and practicality. With a mix of felt and plastic, the brace will be built and magnets, as well as an underlined type glove, will make the glove. A very easy and simple safety mechanism will be used on the brace to assure the safety of the user. In conclusion, an assistive device will be made to improve the lives of those with disabilities who want to fish.
