iF concept design award 2011

Neptune is a swimming aid that enables leg amputees to swim the breast stroke once again. This easily adapted prothesis, which has been designed to accommodate most forms of leg amputation, is simply attached to the stump. The prothesis is capable of 360° motions to allow for spontaneous motion sequences. Neptune can be used by hobby swimmers as well as by professional athletes.
