Health Benefits Safety Tips Statistics Springfree VS. Traditional


Efficient Exercise

According to a study completed by NASA, a 10 minute jump on a trampoline is equivalent to a 30 minute run. This means trampolining is 68% more effective than running and provides equal benefits in a shorter timeframe.

Cardiovascular Fitness

Trampolining provides the vigorous workout necessary to maintain cardiovascular fitness through increased heart and pulse rate, while taking less time out of your busy schedule.

Low Impact Exercise

Trampolining is a low impact exercise. A jumper’s vertical acceleration and deceleration is absorbed by the trampoline mat, taking up 80% of the shock. In comparison, hard surfaces like roads have no “give”. Trampolining protects your joints while exercising your muscles.

Stronger Bones

The repetitive action of jumping improves bone mineral content and builds the musculoskeletal system. Each landing from a jump is double the force of gravity, which develops muscle strength over time and prevents bone diseases such as osteoporosis.

Detoxifying and lymphatic drainage

Bouncing on a trampoline stimulates the free-flowing lymphatic drainage system, helping rid your body of toxins, trapped protein, bacteria, viruses and other cell waste. The acceleration, deceleration and gravity of trampolining provide the ideal conditions for cleansing our body’s cells. Cellular stimulation is increased which forces out waste materials from cells.

Mental Health

Physical activity makes you feel happy, positive and self-confident. Endorphins, the positive mood enhancing chemicals released during exercise, are triggered when jumping. An added benefit is the sheer fun factor of jumping up and down. It will make you smile, laugh and feel happy!


Springfree Trampoline wants everyone to enjoy safe jumping in their backyards.
From time to time, we are advised of customers practicing what we would consider unsafe usage, even on “The World’s Safest Trampoline”.
To help keep jumpers safe, Springfree? Trampoline offer 10 tips for safe jumping:
* One at a time please – Multiple jumpers increase the risk of injury from collision. Statistics show that with more than one simultaneous user, the smaller/lighter of the two is almost always the one sustaining an injury.

* Don’t flip out – Untrained jumpers run the risk of landing awkwardly.

* Avoid roughhousing – Some kids love to play rough and tumble, but this type of behavior can result in injury.

* Let Fido watch from the ground – While the family pet may love to have a turn, this can cause collisions and damage to the trampoline.

* Keep it clean– Trampolines should be void of foreign objects. Any new object introduced to the trampoline is another potential “hard surface” that can result in injury.

* Stand watch – Keep an eye on children and inexperienced jumpers while they are on the trampoline.

* Steer clear – Do not allow children or pets underneath the trampoline while someone is jumping.

* Stay in control – Stay in the center of the trampoline. If you deviate during jumping, stop and move back to the center.

* Practice safety before and after – Aid jumpers in safely entering and exiting the trampoline.

* Talk it out – Discuss the importance of trampoline safety with your kids, and tell them about the risks of not using it properly.

Springfree Trampoline is statistically proven to be the world’s safest trampoline.
By removing the springs and frame from the same plane as the jumping surface and adding a flexible enclosure, Springfree? Trampoline has eliminated the impact areas that cause 83% of all trampoline injuries. The remaining 17% of recorded trampoline injuries requiring ER (Emergency Room) visits are caused by collisions between multiple jumpers . This means Springfree? Trampoline has effectively removed the risk of equipment induced injury.

Summary of Trampoline Injury Statistics

All traditional design trampolines sold in the market place have the impact hazards  inherent to their  design – despite the overlay of attempted safety accessories, including impact attenuation padding and rigid, steel pole supported enclosures.
It’s a big read, but we back up our data through independent research and statistics (we like to give you access to the references). The Whitepaper link below summarises trampoline injury research, and independent testing results of different trampoline designs.

Springfree VS. Traditional
Springfree™ Trampoline uses flexible fibreglass rods to give a soft non-jarring bounce. The rods lie beneath the jumping surface out of harms way. Traditional trampolines have springs that give a more jolting bounce, and despite safety pads, can still injure.
Springfree™ Trampoline’s frame is well beneath the jumping surface. You can’t hit it, period. On traditional trampolines the frame is a hazard to jumpers, being the same height as the mat. With Springfree™ Trampoline, you can jump freely and safely. While jumping on traditional trampoline, both the springs and frame at the mat surface pose an impact risk.
Springfree™ Trampoline has a SoftEdge™, which is over 30 times more shock absorbent than pads. The hard frame and springs on traditional trampolines can only be hidden and slightly softened by pads. Pads not only wear and tear but lose much of their shock absorbing property after only a few impacts.
The Springfree™ Trampoline FlexiNet™ enclosure has flexible supports to cushion jumpers and prevent falls. The jumper is directed back to the centre of the mat and cannot make contact with the enclosure rods. Traditional enclosures may stop jumpers falling off, but in doing so, either direct them into rigid steel poles or straight down onto the springs and frame.
