The Trampoline Problem
Types of Injuries
- Yearly inspections of trampoline parks, their equipment and the materials used, with consequences for suspected problems.
- At least $1 million mandatory insurance for any bodily harm to patrons.
- Requiring records to be kept on serious injuries and equipment repairs.
- Allow cities and counties to oversee certain aspects of the operation, and charge fees for the oversight services.
Regardless of legislation and safety devices, there is still a great risk when jumping, performing gymnastic moves, flying high in the air, and bouncing with others. It’s no small number of people who are injured. The AAP most recently reported that 98,000 trampoline injuries happen each year.
