Rafting activity is accessible to disabled persons and persons with reduced mobility (the physically disabled, the visually impaired and the blind). As a team sport, it represents a possibility of inclusion and involvement. The same kind of sport format, developed for the able bodied, is suitable for disabled persons, on the understanding that, for safety reasons, there are one or more able bodied river guides/athletes on board.
Pararafting began as an initiative by the World Rafting Federation (WRF) to allow athletes with an impairment to compete in the sport.
