The Freestyle Swimming Td. is a recreational accessory designed to be used with a custom swimming prosthesis for those interested in high performance or competitive swimming capability. The design which mimics a folding wing reduces resistance during stroke recovery but flares open to provide maximum resistance during the power stroke. The device can be rotated to optimize various swimming strokes and styles. The wings can be fixed in a flared position for treading water and water aerobic exercise. The Freestyle comes in an adult size but can be easily modified down to conform to smaller hand displacements using standard shop equipment such as band or jig saws and belt sanders. (3.4 ounces, 6 inches long x 5.5 inches wide). 1/2 inch diameter, threaded stainless stud fits all standard body powered, mechanical prosthetic wrists. No cable is required.
The Swim Fin Kit is used without a prosthesis but has the same folding wing design as the Freestyle Swimming Td. TRS provides all the required materials and instructions for fabrication. General shops tools are required for construction including band or jig saw, belt sander, rivet tools, etc. Patterns supplied enable custom construction to match a person’s individual limb and hand dimensions. Fabrication is probably best left to the skills of a certified prosthetist. An economical, simple, lightweight, reliable swimming device for general swimming recreation and exercise. *May be available for direct purchase*
