Researchers have developed a new prosthetic leg that will allow amputees to swim without having to worry about switching to a waterproof prosthetic leg as they get in and out of a swimming pool. No other known prosthetic leg can seamlessly go from walking to swimming.
The prosthetic leg, called the Fin, is a 3D printed leg that is not only waterproof but also gives swimmers a more natural sensation as they move through water.
The researchers working on the Fin are hoping to get it to the market in the next 5-6 months.
