Do you have a trampoline in your backyard? Or do one of your neighbors or friends have a trampoline? If so, do your children love to bounce on it? Since spring is coming, I thought you might like to know some interesting things about trampolines:
- the most injuries occur when jumping more than one on a trampoline. that is caused by losing their balance and falling ON the trampoline. The rebound snaps the body and can cause very serious injuries
- if children cannot do a 3/4 drop, they cannot probably do a safe “flip”. If you have never heard of a 3/4 drop, you are not alone. Just give the Horizon office a call at 616-669-7722 and we will explain.
- check your backyard homeowners policy. most do not cover backyard trampolines.
Trampolines can be a ton of fun with the correct supervision (make sure a mom or dad is out there keeping tabs :)) and the above tips are in place.
Have a great, fun day!
