May 29, 2013

According to a study published last year in the journal Pediatrics, in 2009, nearly 100,000 people hurt themselves on trampolines or trampoline-like products. The American Academy of Pediatrics now tells parents to keep kids off them completely. In addition, safety nets did not significantly reduce injuries.

If your kids do go on a trampoline, then limit the number of children and restrict acrobatics. Collisions caused 75 percent of the injuries as reported by Pediatrics.
