The AMP FIN is making Waves in the Prosthetic Community

Approximately two years ago, Attorney Chris Caseiro was successful in obtaining a patent in a swim fin for leg amputees (known as the Amp Fin®) that was created by Randall and Lori Lord. Click here to learn more about the patent. Amp Fin

Since then, Mr. and Mrs. Lord have traveled across the country and demonstrated how the Amp Fin swim fin allows individuals with amputated legs to swim safely and comfortably. The Lords have done various interviews in the past and recently, they were featured in a “Made in Maine” segment by Steve Minich from WMTW:

The Lords are an example of the type of innovators that live in Maine. They saw a need that was not being met, developed the solution, sought the appropriate intellectual property protection then marketed it to the world.
