Trampolines can provide hours of enjoyment and exercise to children. Unfortunate, a trampoline can also be the site or location of a serious personal injury to a child. There are three major reasons why children are injured while playing on a trampoline:
1. Improper Maintenance / Repair of the Trampoline.
There are far too many homeowners, summer camps, schools, and day care centers with trampolines that are older and / or without proper safety measures and equipment. Many trampolines lack side netting and barriers. Alternatively, the side netting or barrier is in place but in disrepair. There are also trampolines in use and available for play with issues with the legs or footing of the trampoline. Some have missing springs and holes in certain areas. When a trampoline is not properly maintained, children can be harmed even during simple light use.
