Rebounding has been proven to be completely safe.
Read the results of three
agencies studying the affects of gravity and Rebounding.
1. The U.S.Air Force did a study on gforce effects and found that a healthy
individual can safely withstand a total of 8 Gís in a standing position.
They also found that a healthy individual, bouncing on a quality
Rebounder at maximum attainable height, can create a force of 3.24 Gís.
This is well within the maximum allowed in an
2. Part of a NASA study comparing treadmill running to Rebounding found
That the G force measured at the ankle was always more than twice
the G force measured at the back and forehead while running on a treadmill.
This explains lower limb injuries associated with aerobics and running.
Conventional exercise can bring 4 times your body weight down on your
skeleton when pounding your feet on a unforgiving surface!
The bodyís natural shock absorbers become overworked and push
tendons, ligaments, and muscles to the point of injury.
While Rebounding, the G force was the same at all three points
(ankle, back and forehead), which means no extra stress on any part of the body.
Each part receives the same amount of G force.
3. The University of Utah did a study on Rebounders and found that
Rebounders absorb over 90% of your body's weight on impact.
Thatís less than 10% of your body weight bearing down on your skeleton,
on a forgiving surface!
