Amid mounting concerns about the risk of injuries at trampoline parks opening worldwide, a study by Australian researchers indicates that not only do the number of child trampoline injuries increase when a new jump center opens, but the nature of the injuries are different from those typically experienced when children are injured on traditional back yard trampolines.
Listen to the Doctor: "At this hospital, we see about 150 to 200 children with trampoline injuries per year, split equally between boys and girls. These kids have fractures, spinal injuries, and sometimes serious head injuries. Most injuries occur not because kids fly off the trampoline, but because another child lands on them, or they do something inappropriate, such as riding a bike on the trampoline. If you do have a trampoline, only one person at a time should be on it--with supervision. As more people get on, the risk of injury increases exponentially. If one or two kids jump up, then the trampoline is like concrete for the child coming down. Kids can even break their arms or legs as they land."
He added children using trampolines at home are more at risk of falling off it as they are raised above the ground or falling through the padding.
This 8ft childrens trampoline also features a ladder to help small children and adults easily climb in and out of the trampoline, if your wondering how children get in and out of the trampoline when the safety fence is attached, the fence has a fabric door with a toggle fastening.
