  I have to agree with Celia on this

I watched the video and that looks like just about the most difficult way I can imagine to get in and out a kayak for an older person. The guy in the video appears to have both upper and lower body strength and good balance and he's on the slim side. Many people over age 60 have problems in all three of those categories---strength, balance, and body weight. Some people have trouble getting out of a chair, let alone standing up in a kayak from a seated position.
