Improve balance after head injury fins


Following Connie’s head injury, shinfinTM fins have dramatically improved her balance both in the water and walking. The fins have retrained her kick to lift her legs more horizontal and streamlined. She finds they give her tremendous power from her glutes, obliques, thighs and stomach muscles. Swimming in open water at local beaches, she is very thankful for how much shinfinTM fins have improved her balance after her head injury. (On another note, the fins are highly adjustable. So many of Connie’s relations from age 6 upwards have tried her fins and also love them.)

Connie’s review from Long Beach, USA

“I am recovering from a head injury and also injured my knee when I fell on my head. I have been trying to think of the words to express how much I love my shinfinTM fins. But no words seem to do them justice. I have been using them here in Long Beach harbor. I have also swum with them in San Diego Bay. There is a long shore current that used to torment me on the return leg of my swim. With your shinfinTM fins, I power right through it. With concentration, I let the shinfinTM fins pull me up into good horizontal kick alignment. It gives me tremendous power and I can’t believe the way the shinfinTM fins strengthen and work my glutes, obliques, thighs and stomach muscles.”

“In addition, the lateral balance feedback they give me in the water seems to be greatly improving my balance (which I lost from the head injury) both in the water and on land. Your shinfinTM fins have added a stabilizing feedback component to my brain. I have had a dramatic improvement in my balance. Before, I needed a cane on one side and a person on the other to get to the water. Now, I can get there with just a cane. Thank you for my fins.”

Rheumatoid Arthritis & Lupus mobility fins


shinfinTM fins give Sharman mobility benefits for Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus issues with her hip and allow her to swim smoothly. They increase her mobility, help her stay agile and also assist with weight loss.

Sharman’s review from Kensington, USA

“I love my fins. Actually notice the difference with my leg and hip. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus type issues with my hip. Swimming is what I do to stay agile and to increase and maintain my mobility as well as weight. I still glided through the water like a mermaid! Great product and I own it!”

Weak arms & mobility disability fins


Amanda has a mobility disability and, as her arms can also be quite weak, she fits her shinfin fins using the alternative strapping for weaker fingers. They adjust to fit her larger legs and allow her to share her fins. By encouraging kicking from the hips, they have greatly improved her kick and swimming comfort. Furthermore, her brother could feel them improving his swim style after only one use.

Amanda’s review from Canberra, Australia

“I have noticed a great improvement in my kick and have really enjoyed the way they work the legs and buttocks. I have a mobility disability and find that the fins make my swim a lot more comfortable. One great thing is being able to share them – much easier than with conventional flippers! But, I am a bit reluctant ’cause I love them so much.”
