With severe clubfoot and a below knee amputation, Krista finds shinfinTM fins wonderful for swimming and treading water aqua aerobics exercises. This is because shinfinTM fins help lift both her legs horizontal for less drag. So this raises her body horizontal and gives her smoother swimming strokes. Furthermore, they also reduce drag from water flowing over her clubfoot. So they streamline her whole body to swim faster and help her to build stronger muscles during her swimming workouts.
Krista’s review from Craig, USA
“I am really enjoying my shinfinTM fins. I am a below knee amputee and have a severe clubfoot on the other leg. My legs finally are getting more of a workout and aren’t just dragging behind me. I can also tread water so much better and for a much longer time. Can’t wait to take my shinfinTM fins with me for snorkeling.”
Krista’s review: Wonderful fins for clubfoot & below knee amputation
“Thank you for checking in! I am really enjoying my shinfinTM fins. I am a below knee amputee and have a severe clubfoot on the other leg. It is wonderful to finally have some fins that I can use and that don’t just drag me down.”
“It is amazing to be able to use a kickboard to get across the pool and not feel like I have to “claw” my away across. I swim 3 times a week for low impact exercise. My legs finally are getting more of a workout and aren’t just dragging behind me. I can also tread water so much better and for a much longer time.”
“Traveling to Mexico in a few weeks and can’t wait to take my shinfinTM fins with me for snorkeling.”
“I have tried and tried to get regular fins to fit my club foot. But due to the amount of scar tissue and limited mobility, they don’t work and are incredibly uncomfortable.”
“I know as I practice and build up more muscle, I will do better and better with swimming. Thank you!”
That’s wonderful to hear how you are enjoying your swimming again and getting a good workout. We get a lot of feedback like this. Yes, the benefits of swimming with shinfinTM fins should keep building up your muscles as you practice. And I think you will really enjoy them for your snorkeling in Mexico.
“Of course you can use excerpts from my email for your web page. Thanks Marc!”
Thank you for your kind permission Krista. Personal recommendation is very important to help a new product like this along, so I really appreciate it. All the best.
You will find shinfinTM fins wonderful for swimming, treading water and other aqua aerobics exercises and aquatic therapy with many disabilities, including severe clubfoot, below knee amputations and above knee amputations. shinfinTM fins give you smoother swimming strokes because they help lift your legs horizontal and raise your body horizontal for less drag. What’s more, they also reduce drag from water flowing over a clubfoot and a foot with a fused ankle. So they streamline your whole body to swim faster and help you to build stronger muscles during your swimming workouts.
These other reviews show the fins being used with fused ankles and clubbed feet from Arthrogryposis, for snorkeling with hammertoes and bunions and for swimming workouts without toe and foot cramps. Further reviews demonstrate fin use for aquatic therapy with osteonecrosis and for surfing and swimming with a foot amputation.
