SwimFin has passed both EN71 Toy Safety and EN13138 Buoyancy Aid International Safety Standards.
SwimFin inspires imagination and play. When a child puts on a SwimFin, they immediately become more active, playing, building confidence, learning, experimenting, and having FUN! SwimFin plays a psychological part in learning to swim, even before a lesson has started. Kids love the feeling of safety and security SwimFin gives them, while it motivates and encourages imagination and play.
SwimFin is a teaching aid, flotation device, and fun water toy all in one. It should be worn high on the back, above the center of gravity. This way it will ‘suspend’ the child in the water – it will not tip a child forward if worn correctly, as can be seen in the photos.
A SwimFin should never be used with a baby that cannot control their body yet, and it must NEVER be worn on the front of the body.
Remember, the more visible it is, the less it’s working!
The most important thing about SwimFin is this: the more submerged it is, the more support it is giving. This means when the child is vertical, doggy paddling through the water, SwimFin will be almost completely submerged, giving maximum support.
As the child’s body position becomes more horizontal, SwimFin comes out of the water giving less support. This means the child is swimming more for themselves with less and less assistance. And SwimFin never has to be inflated, deflated, or need to have additional support added or removed as with armbands/discs, body vests, etc.
