Following a Symes amputation of his foot, Harry uses his shinfinTM fin for training sessions with his swim team. This helps him to swim faster and develop his thigh muscles. This is because shinfin™ fins guide him to kick from his hips. So they encouage proper streamlined swimming kicks for freestyle, backstroke and butterfly. Even with amputations, it is usually best to wear a pair of shinfinTM fins for a proper balanced stroke.

“My 12 year old grandson had a Symes amputation due to a road traffic accident 18 months ago. He has been training with our local swim team. He is as fast and even faster than some of his peers, with or without his shinfinTM fin, but needs the shinfinTM fin for his thigh muscle development.”(more…)
