It’s no surprise that trampolines are gaining popularity and springing up in many American backyards as go-to play equipment for young children and even adults. Trampolines are a great way to exercise, be social, enjoy being outside and most importantly, have a good time at home!
With concerns of today’s children being inactive and at risk of early childhood obesity, their enthusiasm for the sport is encouraging as it promotes general fitness and athleticism. The modern trampoline was patented by competitive gymnast George Nissen in 1945, designed for acrobats, gymnasts and eventually it was even used by the military for training. But at-home recreational trampoline use has increased in recent decades as the products have become more affordable.
While trampolines are a lot of fun, they can also be dangerous if not used or maintained properly. Luckily, one forward-thinking trampoline designer had the passion and ambition to redesign the trampoline from the ground up. His design is the only one in the world dedicated to removing traditional springs, hides the metal frame beneath the jumping surface, and surrounds it with a flexible safety enclosure, which eliminates 90% of product-related trampoline injury. This new trampoline is well ahead of the safety curve and is already available to ensure that your family’s trampoline experience is the most exciting and the safest that it can be.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is discouraging the recreational use of traditional trampolines, stating that the poor design poses a major injury risk for kids. The sad truth is that American trampoline safety standards have not improved in decades, and most trampolines erected in American backyards are injuries waiting to happen. Luckily, one company has been working very hard to provide your family with a trampoline that reduces 90% of product related injury through a number of groundbreaking and innovative design overhauls. Springfree Trampoline has placed the metal frame below the jumping surface, preventing bouncers from coming into contact and thereby reducing contact-related injury.
They have also completely removed traditional trampoline springs and replaced them with composite rods that are also located beneath the bouncing mat, removing the risk of pinches or tears. The patented SoftEdge™ mat has no frame and no springs and most importantly no hard edges, thereby offering 30 times the shock absorption of traditional trampoline pads. The mat ends at the enclosure net, with nothing in between to hurt your children. In fact, the FlexiNet™ has been rigorously tested to ensure that your children are guided gently back to the jumping surface, and that there is no way for a bouncer to topple the trampoline with their own weight.
Springfree Trampoline can guarantee quality and safety because every single component is rigorously tested in-facility and built to the strictest guidelines, which has won them the US Family Choice Award, the Parent Tested Parent Approved Award and the International Design Award.

Parents and professionals alike are recognizing the leaps and bounds they have made in trampoline safety, giving consumers the peace of mind they need when purchasing safely designed trampolines for their children.
