Trampolines are notorious for providing hours of family fun, but many people do not realise that they have a long history with saving lives!
Fire brigades all around the world have been using trampolines to aid people who are in emergency situations. Frequently, firemen use trampolines to provide a safe landing for individuals who may be trapped in burning buildings. They position a high-quality trampoline underneath an open window and instruct the person in danger to jump out of the window and onto the trampoline mat. Upon landing, the person is cradled by the trampoline jump mat and gently rebounds until he or she can regain enough balance to stand up and walk away unharmed.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about these fire brigade trampolines is their sheer size. These trampolines are much larger and of a much higher quality than recreational trampolines. These powerful trampolines feature pads on top of the jumping mat to absorb shock and to increase the safety of the jumper.
Do you know of anyone who has been saved by a fire brigade trampoline? How did they describe the experience? What do you think the best thing about fire brigade trampolines would be?
Occasionally, new trampolines can cause headaches to users. Headaches are the result of tight muscles in the neck which, in turn, can affect the whole head. The tightness of the neck muscles fluctuate throughout the day, depending on the time of day and the kinds of activity that are being done. A small number of unlucky people may feel more pressure and tightness in their muscles whenever they begin to jump on a trampoline. When they stop jumping, the pain dissipates.
If you are among the unfortunate minority who does experience trampoline-induced headaches, you must release tension in your neck. Relax your body by taking a deep breath. Place your hands along the side of the head so that your thumbs are under your ears and your fingers are behind your head. Squeeze your thumb and fingers together and hold for 45 seconds. After this time has passed, slowly lower your head to look at your feet. Ease up on the pressure, but make sure that your neck remains lowered for an additional 30 seconds. While still maintaining a lowered neck position, reposition your thumbs under your ears and place your fingers behind the head, this time at the base of the skull. Repeat the above action before jumping on the trampoline again.
Hope this helps!
Everyone knows that trampolines provide hours of jumping fun to kids and adults alike. To add to the fun, many high-quality trampolines feature games or other painted novelties on the jump mat. Unfortunately, many families who want to add a creative flair to their poor quality trampolines unknowingly put the health and safety of jumpers by using spraypainting or rolling paint on the jump mat. This is highly discouraged— the paint will not adhere to the jumping mat and would instead stick to the bare feet of the jumpers.
In addition to the paint sticking to the bottoms of the feet, the paint will also rub off on areas surrounding the trampoline, including the garden, home, and driveway of the property owners. It is also important to note that spray paint is not suitable for contact with skin. The skin can absorb some of the paint’s chemicals, leading to health issues and feelings of sickness.
Please, do not risk the health and safety of your family. Iftrampoline mat games are a priority, invest in a high quality trampoline from Vuly. All Vuly models feature Hex Vex mat games to add to the bouncing fun.
Happy jumping, everyone!
Jumping on a trampoline is a fantastic to involve the whole family in a fun wellness routine, but many times trampoline owners unintentionally put themselves and other jumpers at risk. Most trampoline accidents are very preventable with just a few safety considerations.
First, never jump on a trampoline when the jumping mat is wet. Jumping mats can be slick when they are wet, and the unstable surface on which the jumper is landing may lead to falls or injuries. Never allow children to throw water balloons or buckets of water on the jumping mat.
Secondly, if you haven’t purchased a trampoline safety net, you may want to consider buying one to increase the safety of your trampoline. Safety nets are crucial safety components and prevent the vast majority of would-be injuries. Safety nets act as arms to keep the jumpers safely in the middle of the trampoline.
Next, carefully clear all debris from the jumping mat before allowing users to access the trampoline. Injuries may occur if the jumper lands on rubbish that has been left on the jumping mat. By clearing the debris away, you give jumpers a fun, smooth, steady surface on which to land.
