Swinging on the bellicon® trampolines has proven itself to be an incredibly simple and at the same time enjoyable way to exercise. With their patented, highly flexible bungee rope ring suspension, they differ like day and night from the widely-used, known mini trampolines with metal spring suspension. The incomparably deep in the mat reaching swing and long brake path enables on the one hand a very effective, eccentric muscle training, and on the other hand an ideal, aerobic cardio vascular workout without the danger of reaching critical impact levels.
This complete, moderate stimulation of the muscles, metabolism as well as heart and lymphatic circulation, connected to exercise joy and relaxation, is the best prevention against many so-called national diseases that are afflicting more and more of the population:
● Excess weight and digestion problems (activation of the metabolism)
● Neck and back pain, tension (muscular relaxation)
● Stress and depression (relaxation through the natural “cradle” reflex)
● Concentration difficulties (stimulation of blood supply and circulation)
● Equilibrium problems (excellent balance training and fall prevention)
● Allergies and lymphatic blockages (lymph drainage through muscle “pumping”)
● Osteoporosis (exercise that works against gravity)

For several years, NASA has included the rebounder trampoline, also known as a rebounder, in their fitness program. Fitness experts have also long touted the benefits of rebounding which NASA concluded as being “the most efficient and effective exercise yet devised by man.”
Many major retailers and sporting goods stores sell different brands of rebounder trampolines that claim they are the best. U.S. consumers face confusion when they start looking to purchase a rebounder because prices range all over the board from twenty dollars up to eight hundred dollars for more deluxe import models, all claiming to be the best.
Just head on over to the world’s largest online auction site eBay and you will see listings for $ 20 to $ 700 rebounders at any given time all making the claim that they are the right rebound exerciser for you to be using.
With so many choices, how can you decide which is the best rebounder to purchase?
Inferior rebounders can cause health problems, with long term effects, especially those with mats that have too much give or stretch, typically made of canvas or cheap plastic, according to David Hall, the creator of the Cellerciser(R) rebounder. Nerve damage, knee problems, and lower back pain can be the results. Besides the unnatural twisting of ankles that can cause strain on the back, knees and inner ankles, inferior rebounder trampoline models with over-stretching mats can be harmful to your feet.
In April of 2006, recalls of almost 700,000 mini-trampoline units were issued over customer injuries. WalMart and other retailers recalled the “In Motion” rebounder made by Stamina.
Most higher-quality rebounders like Needak(R), ReboundAIR(TM), and Cellerciser(R) are manufactured with Permatron(R), a weather-resistant, space-age material made in the United States that does not stretch and holds its shape.
Besides the mat, it is important to note the type of springs being used on the model that you’re thinking of purchasing. Many brands use tube springs that place weight on the end of the spring, allowing for little stretch. Eventually, the body will come to an abrupt jar, breaking the spring, damaging the unit or injuring the body. Little tube springs don’t allow for smooth deceleration, and stop short.
A more resilient bounce can be achieved when longer and wider springs are used, such as in the case of the ReboundAIR(TM), which also claims to be the “best built, most innovative rebounder on the planet.” Bungee cords and double-coil springs are featured on the models of rebounder trampoline offered by Bellicon, a Swiss/German company that refers to themselves as the “Porsche of Rebounders.”
Triple-tiered springs are part of recent spring technology improvements introduced by Hall which alleviate the abrupt jarring effect while bouncing. Cellerciser models now feature these patented, tougher-to-break springs which adjust to the weight of the person bouncing automatically allowing for a gentle acceleration-deceleration effect.
