EndorFIN / Swim Fins + Swimming Pants

EndorFIN
EndorFIN

EndorFin combines swim fins and swim pants to a system supporting swimming motions. The product aims towards optimal conditions of input and return of energy in the legs` kicking motion. Wihout further motors, the swimmer only benefits from self generated motion energy.

Elastic units are stretched and kinetically charged, following the natural movements of the human leg. The resulting kicking motion, which resembles 90% of the propelling power, is eventually supported by decharging and collapsing of the elastic units. Resulting in a more powerful kicking motion, the swimmer`s control, endurance and safety will greatly improve.
