Health Tip: Use a Trampoline Safely

Young children are especially vulnerable to trampoline injuries, commonly from falling off the trampoline to colliding with another person.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these safety suggestions:

  • Children on a trampoline should be supervised by adults at all times.
  • Only one child at a time should be allowed on the trampoline, and somersaults should never be allowed.
  • Trampoline springs and frame should be covered in thick padding.
  • Equipment should be inspected regularly.
  • Any worn or non-working part of the trampoline should be promptly replaced.
