Trampolines are a wonderful thing, they can be used by adults and kids, for serious fitness and athletic ability skills improving or just for simple fun, they can be placed indoors or outdoors, and there is a wide variety of trampolines that are suited for specific purposes, even some toddle trampoline which are becoming extremely popular with parents. A mini-trampoline (also known as a rebounder, trampette, jogging trampoline, or exercise trampoline) is a type of trampoline less than 1 metre (3 ft 3 in) in diameter and about 30 centimetres (12 in) off the ground, often kept indoors and used as part of a physical fitness regime.
If you are buying a trampoline for your kids, a mini trampoline, or a toddler trampoline, you should think about how they will use it, and the fact that you will not always be around to keep an eye over them. Kids love trampoline and in many cases they enjoy using it so much that they let themselves go a little and lose control, this is why you will need to think about getting a safety net, or a trampoline enclosure for your kids not to fly out of the trampolines. Using a trampoline can be dangerous. Organized clubs and gyms usually have large safety end-decks with foam pads at each end, and spotters are placed alongside the trampoline to try to break the fall of any people who loses control and falls.
Kits are available for home trampolines that provide a retaining net around the trampoline and prevent users from bouncing over the edge. Safety net enclosures have a larger benefit for safeguarding solo trampolinists, a good safety pad will cover the outer frame, the springs and hooks. A good safety enclosure or net will cover the inside of the outer rail of the trampoline. The outer rail is the circular bar to which trampoline springs are attached. This will not just prevent falls onto the ground but also on the hard outer surface of the trampoline where accidents are common. Having some training in a gym may be beneficial in alerting people to possible hazards and provide techniques to avoid bad falls.
