Randall and Lori Lord have obtained a utility patent for a swim fin for leg amputees (known as the Amp Fin™), see U.S. Patent No. 9,186,554. Mr. Lord, who is himself an amputee, developed a swim fin that allows individuals with amputated legs to swim safely and comfortably. Mr. and Mrs. Lord recognized that the other marketed swim fins for amputees were poorly designed and would cause a great deal of pain to use on an amputated leg. Please find below a picture of Mr. and Mrs. Lord with their patent and the Amp Fin™ swim fin:
Mr. and Mrs. Lord launched Amp Fin, LLC and are in the process of manufacturing the Amp Fin™ swim fin for sale. Their journey in developing the Amp Fin ™ has been featured in the Bangor Daily News and Warriors in the Workplace, which helps put veterans back to work.
