How To Avoid The Trampoline Injuries
- Nov 05, 2018 -

Key safety points from ROSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents)

Trampoline isn’t suitable for kids under 5years of age because they’re not sufficiently physically developed to control their jumping.

Trampoline injuries can occur to all parts of the body, including the neck, arms, legs face and head. Head and neck injuries are the most serious injuries associated with trampolines. The most common injuries are caused by awkward landings and include sprains or fractures to the wrist, forearm, elbow and collarbone.

Adult supervision is no guarantee of safety. More than half of all trampoline accidents occur whilst under supervision. However a trained spotter’ can greatly reduce this risk.

Never combine alcohol with trampolining! Children have been hurt while bouncing with adults who have been drinking at summer garden parties.

Whatever your ability level, join a local trampolining club to learn new trampolining skills, ranging from the basics of landing safely to advanced moves such as somersaults.

Trampoline is great fun, just make sure you take care and follow all the safety guidelines next time you go for a bounce!
