Tracy is a below knee amputee whose shinfinTM swim fin has changed her life. She absolutely loves the improvement in her swimming style and the increase in speed. What’s more, her leg muscles, balance and mobility have all improved too. This is because shinfinTM fins encourage her to kick from her hips, strengthening the muscles in her thighs, buttocks and torso. They also encourage constant speed throughout her stroke. So Tracy swims about a mile most days, summer and winter.
Tracy’s review from Cedar Rapids, USA
“Thank you swim fin! I’m a below the knee amputee and use your fin just about every day. It’s made a difference in my mobility. The fin has helped my leg (Stella) develop muscle a lot faster than just walking. My balance has improved 300%. I recommended trying the fin out! You’ll be surprised at the results and it happens quickly. I swim a mile just about every day and my time improved by 8 minutes. In just a month!!!”
Tracy’s review: below knee amputee, shinfinTM swim fin changed my life
“I’m a BKA (below knee amputee) and I purchased your fin last summer! I absolutely love it! It has made such a difference in my swimming.”
” I love the swim fin. Used it all summer and will continue to use it indoors this winter.”
I’d be very interested to hear some more about how your fin has made such a difference to your swimming. And also how it has helped you with your mobility and strength in your activities other than swimming.
I noticed that you only ordered one fin. So you may like to know that most single below knee amputees wear a pair of fins, one on their stump and the other in the normal fitting position on their other shin, or perhaps a bit higher. That tends to give a better balanced stroke, so you might find two fins even better!

It is wonderful to hear how swimming with your shinfinTM fin has helped you to develop your leg muscles a lot faster than just walking, and has improved your mobility and balance out of the water so much too. We get a lot of great feedback from amputees getting similar benefits from swimming with shinfinTM fins.
Do you also feel that swimming with your shinfinTM fin has strengthened your core and torso muscles? Again, this is common feedback. Stronger core muscles improve mobility and balance for walking as well.
If you are a below knee amputee then shinfinTM swim fins may change your life. You will love the improved swimming style and the increased speed that they give you. This is because shinfinTM fins guide you to kick from your hips, strengthening the muscles in your torso, buttocks and thighs. So this can give you stronger leg muscles, better balance and improved mobility too. They also encourage constant speed throughout your stroke. Use them for your daily swimming exercise, summer and winter. You can even use them for scuba diving. Look after them and they will last you for many years.
Other reviews show below knee amputees getting even more propulsion by wearing their second fin on their other leg, using them with a knee replacement and using them for triathlon swim training. Further reviews show how shinfinTM fins also help people with mobility issues, including from rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
