Disabled Diving in Sharm El Sheikh Red Sea







Chris Isacc was disabled after an accident then took up SCUBA.
Many paraplegics including Chris uses webbed gloves for propulsion.
Chris has kindly given us details of his searches of webbed gloves. He finds the fingerless ones more flexible when performing fiddely adustments.

Chris has sent us details of shops and websites that sell webbed gloves.

Beaver – these are 5mm and far too thick for any useful feeling!!! http://www.divingshop.com/products/BEAVER-WEBBED-5MM-GLOVES-EXTRA-LARGE-1867.aspx
Also there are gloves with open tips which give less propulsion but have a lot more feeling and movement (if you need to do fiddly things) they don’t last that long though as they are only meant as a swim training aid:
