About the solution

Randy got his leg crushed in a steel door, more than 30 years ago, and the doctors had to amputate his leg.

Randy always loved the water but after the accident, he stopped swimming. He and his wife searched for a prosthetic swim leg, but they couldn’t find a solution on the market that would satisfy Randy’s needs. The legs they found where either painful or didn’t work properly.

After almost 14 years of trial and error, the couple came up with an invention: not a prosthetic leg, but a fin – Amp Fin. They tested the gadget on several amputee patients.

The product has a USA patent and can be customized for each patient.

The device is being sold online and already got orders from countries outside USA like UK, Australia and Denmark.
