Dangers of Buying a Trampoline According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and American Academy of Pediatrics, in 2014, there were 104,691 hospital emergency room-treated injuries associated with trampolines, mostly in young children and teens. 1  Many of these trampoline injuries occurred whe. Trampolines are popular among kids and adults, but there’s no denying they’re dangerous.

Whether kids are supervised at an indoor park or jumping on a trampoline in the backyard, there’s always risk for significant injury. This makes trampolines inappropriate and dangerous for play. Cleveland Clinic is a non-profit academic medical center. The most common trampoline-related injury is a sprained ankle; this isn’t severe, but can be painful and will limit kids’ participation in sports and other activities. Broken bones and dislocations are also a risk, especially for young children.

An AAP data review showed that 29% of injuries in kids ages 6 to 17 were fractures or dislocations. Yes, our risks are greater by owning a trampoline, but our kids are having the time of their lives jumping on it, and I just don’t see the harm in that, especially when there are numerous activities our kids could get injured from every day. The ironic thing is, just two months after buying our kids a trampoline, my daughter broke her arm. Unfortunately, jumping on a trampoline, in addition to having a positive effect on the motor development of children, their elasticity and good balance, poses a high risk of injury for both children and adults.

A fall from a trampoline or the use of a trampoline in the wrong way can result in various injuries, sprains, fractures, and even potentially serious injuries to the head and neck. Each year from 2010 to 2014, E.R. doctors treated more than 91,000 trampoline injuries, including head injuries, fractures, and sprains. In the worst-case scenarios, kids can end up paralyze. Trampoline jumping poses a high risk of injury for children. The activity can result in sprains and fractures in the arms or legs — as well as head and neck injuries.

The risk of injury is so high that the American Academy of Pediatrics strongly discourages the use of trampolines at home. Trampoline park injuries also are on the rise. Most trampoline injuries occur when there is more than one person using a trampoline. Children can get hurt when they: Land wrong while jumping.

Land wrong while flipping and doing somersaults (this should not be allowed because of the risk of head and neck injuries). Try stunts. Strike or are struck by another person. Fall or jump off the trampoline.

According to data from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, trampolines caused more than 100,000 injuries in 2014, the last year for which data was available. In fact, the backyard play. Hidden Dangers of Trampolines April 28, 2010 / 8:44 AM / CBS It’s peak season for trampoline injuries, most of which are minor bumps and bruises.

Trampolines are especially hazardous because of the increased risk of neck hyperflexion, hyperextension, and rotation if the child falls from the trampoline.

At sports shops, however, you may find trampoline units that have a higher cost, perhaps $90 or $100, but are well-manufactured units that use good quality springs and pipes, which allow you to exercise safely without the trampoline feeling unstable.

Young children should always be supervised when using trampolines even though it has been acknowledged that more than half of trampoline accidents occur while under supervision from parents or carers.

Certain repetitive physical activities can serve both functions, and I have met many families where the trampoline has proved to be an essential piece of kit for this reason.

  • Never take them away to many good childhood memory’s like when there was ice on my trampoline I went on it jump slipped fell on my but and hot me head it was the best moment ever for a 12 year

  • Well were you actually watching this kid in the first place…. I started gymnastics when I was three but I also had trainers around me I went on to compete in a competition dance in competition cheerleading I also rode dirt bikes and I did tricks on those I was a crazy kid I lived in the country and I had fun every second I could but I am not stupid unlike most kids these days I will include my own on this they have no common sense

  • Do away with them? Are we really talking about a trampoline ban? Is there not one thing more important to report on than regurgitating some nerd’s vendetta against coordinated kids? Lol Let people make their own choices you fruckin’ hipster-liberal, garbage dump of a program. Jesus….

  • I WILL NOT GET RID OF MY TRAMPOLINE I PAID FOR THAT and that’s their foult THERE IS ONLY SUPPOSED TO BE ONE PERSON ON IT AND ONLY JUMP UP AND DOWN! SIMPLE PEAPLE!!!!

  • I am a trampoline gymnast as well as a coach and I have kids come into my gymnastics gym all the time to try a class and end up loving it. To all parents worried about trampolines look around for a gymnastics gym in your town you’d be surprised that they offer classes on trampoline and how to do it correctly including flips. Trampoline gymnastics is an Olympic sport that was added in the 2000 Olympics and in 2012 America had its first trampolinist make it into the finals meaning top 8 in the world. Is trampoline dangerous? Yes, what sport isn’t? But there are ways to prevent it. It’s a sport I love and spend everyday practicing.
    To the dads that don’t want their son doing gymnastics, think of how many girls there are compared to boys… Just sayin… 😉

  • One wrong jump and I broke my right ankle when I was 5. To this day, my ankle isn’t the same. I go to appointments and doctors try to figure how I still have pain so many years later

  • This SO dramatic, when the mother said “The advertising said it was good for little kids” First of all, it’s a 2 YEAR OLD
    And second of all, Who in the hack believes advertising, she should’ve KNOWN how bouncy trampolines are.
    P.s sry if I offended anyone in this comment

  • just becuse there are just bad fucking quality tramps in usa you don`t need to ban them over the world, I`ve never injured myself on my north explorer and it`s extremly good quality and safety on it so there`s no way…

  • Scooters being banned!! Yes you get hurt and I got hit by a car on them, and I know it was my fault. If you have a net on your trampoline your safe.

  • kids get hurt………………………………….KIDS GET HURT theres nothing nowone can do anything. they wanted the trampoline they get it

  • I feel extremely sorry for this kid because his Mother didn’t know better. The American Academy of Pedriatrics recommends, “CHILDREN UNDER 6 SHOULD NEVER USE A TRAMPOLINE.” There are small bouncing trampolines meant for little kids…That is true. But the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation mostly likely applies to large trampolines many people have and use, as well as trampoline parks. Many trampolines people have aren’t even enclosed, increasing the chance for injury. But truthfully, for Colton’s mom… common sense should’ve have kicked in and said, “A three year old should NEVER use a large trampoline or go to a trampoline park.” The company said, “we are investigating how an incident of this nature could have happened.” That means that the trampoline park company either didn’t know about or ignored the recommendation of The American Academy of Pediatrics….which makes the company and others like it who don’t know the recommendation a dangerous and potentially deadly liability. Colton’s mom she would have read about the age limit a child should be able to use a trampoline BEFORE letting her kid set foot inside a trampoline park. She should have also kept her guard up by thinking the trampoline park company doesn’t know as much as they might claim. So, it is really his Mother’s fault that he is in all this pain and his pain is tragically still continuing. Her son’s doctor said, “A toddler’s bones are too fragile to sustain the stress of repeated jumping on a trampoline.” She should have already known this! The moral of this story is: Consider a child’s body mechanics and physical limitations before letting them do anything of this degree of physical exertion, do your research and read up about anything physical like this concerning a child, read about what ages are truly safe to allow a child to participate in specific activity like this, and always watch your kid regardless of how safe a company claims. As an example for all those who post things after this, let’s put the dangers of trampolines out there and into perspective. In 2015 alone: 107,100 trampoline-related ER visits occurred(from children to adults)! Also from 2009 2013, 21 people have LOST THEIR LIVES to trampolines!! So, statistically…even IF you are trained and have expert spotters with you…. it is safer to watch other people use a large trampoline than use one yourself or let a kid over 6 use it.

  • We had a trampoline on my block. We used to put it under this tree and try to touch this high ass branch. It was super dangerous as you were looking up and couldn’t time your land. We would often take a bad bounce and fly off the trampoline on to concrete. I was never seriously injured, we stopped using the trampoline because at the time we were really in to “dunk contest” on low rim courts and the trampoline made jumping off of solid ground feel weird and lame. So while I never hurt myself on the trampoline, I did hurt myself dunking. I also broke my ankle on roller blades, split my foot open running for the ice cream man and got whiplash from football.

  • Since my trampoline accident caused me to have 3 hip surgeries I say foe, but let the little ones learn the lesson we all learned as a kid… they are too soft now a days anyways.

  • I broke my elbow badly on trampoline, and i’ll never recover fully. And yes, you could easily die or get paralyzed on it. They definitely should be banned as entertainment for kids!

  • i grew up around trampolines (and with a trampoline) and aside from common minor injuries that occur sometimes with exercise, the only time anyone i’ve known ever got an injury on a trampoline was when i landed on my cousin and popped her shoulder out of place. she cried and then my grandma popped it back into place and she was fine. so i have no reason to distrust trampolines.

  • The tramp park near my house has that agreement thing where they clearly state that they are not resonsible for injuries… And every park i know has that so its the parents fault
