Panama City, FL – Visually impaired Veterans use vibrations to kayak

Panama City, FL –

MOBILE, Alabama (WKRG) – VRG or Vibrio-remote Tactile Guidance is a new system used to train visually impaired people to practice kayaking.

On a trip to Key Largo, 3 mobile veterans joined the week-long OuttaSight Clinic where the visually impaired could learn to paddle in flat, coastal or basic whitewater. Sighted and disabled veterans also participate to become trained kayak guides.

“It’s more than kayaking for me, it’s an opportunity to meet and spend time with other visually impaired veterans like me who have a sense of adventure.”

Rick Cassidy, a TRR OuttaSight paddler

Tonya Butler, a veteran Mobile Alabama guide, explains how the VRG system works in the video below:
