CHOOSING MINI TRAMPOLINE
Mini trampolines - also known as rebounders, bouncers, trampettes, and lymphacisers - are mostly circular or hexagonal in shape.
Tradditionally manufactured with steel springs in the past few years a variety of bungee cord rebounders have become popular.
Rebounders vary in diameter, and quality. Most mini trampolines look the same when you glance at them in a photo or shop front. Think carefully about the importance of choosing a quality mini trampolines for your rebounding exercises.
CHOOSE MINI TRAMPOLINE REBOUNDERS THOUGHTFULLY FOR REBOUNDER WORKOUTS
Mini trampoline rebounders should be therapeutic and fitness friendly
people are disappointed, having purchased cheap rebounders only to find the
rebounder springs break quickly, the mat tears, and the quality of the bounce is
What's more they find they can not replace the mini trampoline
parts and realise they have wasted money. What's more they havent enjoyed their mini trampoline workouts - it can be like jumping on a board!
Good quality mini trampolines should last a lifetime, work with your body weight providing comfortable rebounding exercise workouts.
You will need to replace rebounder springs and mats, and you may need to replace other parts of a good quality rebounder. What matters is that you purchase rebounders where the spare parts are fully available.
surge of mass-produced, low cost quality mini trampolines began to flood the
market in the early eighties.
Many of these rebounders have design elements that remain unchanged; springs are tight and unyielding, and mats that rip at the edge after a short time. Most mass produced mini trampolines are manufactured on large conveyor plants in China and the Far East.
Many manufacturers are looking for the cheapest component parts such as springs, and low grade mat fabric, including the cotton that is used to stitch the mini trampolines mat. In no time at all these parts fail, and the rebounders often begin to bottom out!
The difference between cheaper
mass produced mini trampolines and quality rebounders lies largely in the mini
trampoline rebounder component parts, along with how the rebounder's design elements
are constructed when the mini trampoline is manufactured!
A rebounder with quality springs will often give you more
specific rebounder mat stability for rebounding aerobics and sports specific
rebounding. The mat will give to a large degree with your body weight as you depress the bounce at the bottom - without jarring your joints.
Rebounders are available with screw on or folding legs. Mini trampoline leg caps, need to be solid and stable to maintain a stable surface tension on your rebounder as you are performing Starbound rebounding exercise workouts.
Good quality rebounder leg caps also protect your floors and carpeted surfaces.

While price is not always an exact indication of quality, it does
apply, to a large extent.
Ideally you need 40"(102cm)

The mini trampoline springs and mats, both attached to
mini trampoline rebounder frames, need to yield completely with body weight at
the bottom of the bounce.
They also need to maintain a
stable surface tension to ensure you are rebounding safely and comfortably,
performing techniques and skills with speed and agility.
The design of a rebounder is critical if it is going to work correctly,
absorbing your body weight, yet maintaining a stability as your feet strike the mini trampoline mat
The top quality lymphaciser rebounders were
created so that the kinetic energy generated through rebounding exercise would
be maximised for health, fitness and healing
You need to be aware
of these aspects before you spend money on a rebounder, which may look the part
but doesn't work.
The way the springs are connected
angle and alignment of the
of the mat
responsiveness, the energy dynamics of design - all work in concert to make
a rebounder that works. You can dramatically see this when you bounce on mini
trampolines, side by side.
Kinesiologists employ a popular method of testing the resistive strength of muscles
- cheap rebounders often muscle
test 'weak' indicating they will drain the vital life energy, making you feel wiped out when used
and will give you discomfort, backache, headache, and pain.
Mass produced rebounders have no bearings for the springs, coupled with weak,
short- life springs. Many of these cheaper mini trampolines do not have a high quality

Mini trampoline rebounder springs are very important when it comes to
manufacturing quality mini trampolines for a healthy rebounding workout.
Flat straight rebounder springs, most commonly
used on mass-produced mini trampoline rebounder equipment, contain hooks that bend back on
themselves and are most prone to distortion and fracture.
On some mini trampolines, the rebounder springs may last for
as little as six weeks. They are often not replaced by the distributor. If this
occurs you may find yourself having to purchase another rebounder.
The Rebounders springs need to be strong, yet yielding,
ideally coiled with 'tapered' ends to provide a yielding rebounding workout, extensive
durability and longevity of the mini trampoline.
The size and number of the
rebounders springs will influence the
tension of the bounce when you are rebounding, but this provides no indication of the springs yielding
Only use rebounders with quality springs or you will jar the joints.
Mini trampoline rebounders can be purchased with folding
legs or with legs that screw on.
If your mini trampoline is close at hand, in a
room of the house you truly enjoy being in, and if your rebounder is immediately
accessible you will definitely participate in your rebounding workouts more
So something as simple as a folding leg designed mini trampoline can
make the rebounders much easier to put up to use quickly and also move around
the house from room to room with ease.
It is a matter of personal preference as to which
rebounders leg style best suits you
Both mini trampoline rebounder leg designs are stable
and safe, as long as you check the rebounders legs are tight and secure at the
beginning of each session.
In a small room, spring-loaded folding legs on
rebounders do make your
mini trampoline more accessible.
Regular lymphasizing increases the flow of lymphatic fluid throughout the body,
feeding the cells and producing energy to balance the kinetic energy in the
muscles, to make you feel re-vitalised and re-energised.
If, however, your rebounder is not sprung correctly, this will produce subtle
jarring, causing stress on the ankles, knees, hips and spine; trapped plasma
proteins will be created throughout the body faster than the lymphatic system
can remove them. Cheap rebounders don't work for this reason.
Use Quality mini
trampoline REBOUNDER equipment to revitalize
Kinetic energy builds up in your
muscles, when you perform rebounding exercises. Your muscles, in turn, deliver
this energy to your organs and cells – which function more efficiently,
revitalizing your energy.
For mini trampoline rebounding workouts to be highly effective, the
build-up of kinetic energy and the activity generating it must be smooth with no
When jarring occurs with any form of exercise, kinetic energy stored in
the muscles will fly to protect your joints, bypassing vital organs.
Regrettably this is what happens using poorly
constructed, tight mini trampoline rebounders.
If the mini trampoline mat yields
only a short way, deceleration into the mat becomes too rapid when you are
rebounding and your body is stopped more abruptly at the bottom of the mini
Rather than releasing muscular tension in blocked
tissue, the opposite can occur when you are rebounding, with tension rising into the body blocking
The mini trampoline springs and rebounders
mat must yield completely with your full body weight at the bottom of the bounce
when you are rebounding, yet maintain a stable surface tension for balance
Poor Quality mini trampoline Rebounders do not release tension when you are rebounding
I have tested mini trampoline rebounders of all price points that would
not meet my personal approval. If the rebounders springs are too
tight, and the mini trampoline mat fabric not resilient, rebounding exercises
can load tension into your body.
If that happens, whatever part of
your body is weakest, tense, or suffering blocked energy and fluid, will respond
by 'feeling' that tension or blockage when you are rebounding.
Tension might surface in the knees when you are
rebounding; but rebounding on a tight poorly spring mini trampoline can also
create tension on your lower back, head,
ankles, shoulders or abdominal region.
This would defeat the purpose of your Starbound programmes.
Rebounding workouts need to be performed on quality mini trampoline rebounders
for the benefits of rebounding to be experienced fully.
On the other hand even on some of the more expensive
rebounder mini trampolines in the marketplace, I've noticed the rebounders
springs are too long, and the bounce become too deep when you are rebounding.
This can make it difficult to confidently maintain balance rebounding on the
mini trampoline, while developing a variety of rebounding aerobic workout
This is in particular evident with
many of the new coiled rebounder systems. They may provide a wonderful quality
bounce, but they are not suitable for performing an energetic rebounding aerobic
