Pitty they are ridiculously overpriced.
Respond to this video… Interesting point there, we always appreciate
feedback 🙂 Our product does reposition what a trampoline is, and the cost.
Traditional trampolines are made cheaply, hence the injury risks. The total
global hospitalisations from trampoline injuries are in excess of 200,000
annually. To remove the elements that cause these injuries it costs around
25 times more to build. And that’s a price we believe is really important
to put on protecting kids 🙂
@springfreetrampoline Nobody cares about tests and records, they care about
value. Up to $2000+ for backyard trampoline is a bit over the top. If you
think about it, it is a trampoline built for safety so the people targeted
are protective parents. These parents would have very strict rules for when
on a trampoline which takes all the fun out of it. In most situations the
more careful you are the less fun you’re having.
@springfreetrampoline I understand that accidents happen but the majority
of injuries occur when children are uncareful and become unaware. The
trampolines aren’t to blame for injuries. Are you selling them as
trampolines to just bounce on? It’s crazy to spend $2000+ on that. I think
that you’re targeting wealthy people and because of this you decided to
make the prices as high as possible and over exaggerate the risk of injury.
Very smart though. I bet you’re making alot of $.
@MckMick We are still amazed by the causes of trampoline injuries
ourselves. 83% of all injuries are caused by the equipment present in
traditional trampolines – and that’s why we were designed, by a PHD
engineering Dad from New Zealand after one of his children was injured. So
it’s a pretty grass roots innovation. I wish the risk of injury was
exaggerated, because the rate of injury is staggering. Happy to point you
to more info. Have a great day. 🙂 Kristen
I heard that if a spectator gets his fingers caught in the springs or
whatever you call them, while someone is jumping that the fingers will be
crushed, also the way the trampoline goes down it goes in a twisting motion
and over time is bad for the knees….. Also I agree they are way over
priced to thr point a average family will have a hard time affording one
Our patented fibreglass rods are designed to work in unison and bend
inwards with about 0.3 of a degree of twist. This equates to ~5mm movement
in a lateral direction – i.e. sideways at the edge of the mat surface. All
other movement is inward towards the center of the mat. This movement is
undetectable when in use & provides no affect to jumpers & their knees.
Regarding fingers being crushed, our inventor answers that question in our
video “Springfree Trampoline Review: The Rods” 🙂 – Claire
I was injured on a trampoline in 1990 at age 16. I am now a
quadriplegic(neck..spinal cord injury cervical 4/5) permanently paralyzed.
I landed wrong (in the center). I don’t believe there are any real
precautions you can take to completely safe. It’s not worth a few minutes
of fun. People don’t realize just how dangerous they are. ‘Practically
Injury Proof”, Not..You are actually doing more harm with an inclosed (net)
structure. Think about the force it takes to push your body weight in the
air. That force coming down is like hitting a brick wall. It may seem as
though it’s giving way but it isn’t. I know of one lady that wasn’t even
jumping, she was sitting on edge by the padded springs part while one of
her kids were jumping, it popped her up and she had no reaction time, this
left her completely paralyzed from the neck down. It’s not just “the
jumpers” that can be seriously injured. From my experience, the only way
not to get injured on a trampoline is to not get on one period.I urge
parents to think twice about buying a trampoline. Just my opinion!!
Having spring free..I don’t believe this will be safer…Hitting the
center..where the force is,is what injures people. I hit the center. Enough
