Put it this way, if you don't see other mammals bouncing like this, it is a good indication the equipment is no good. You need Darwin's evolution to genetically become like a Kangeroo to bounce well over millions of years to adapt.
So with any stuff that you buy commercial, just ask yourself, would this be good for other primates too and is there a natural world equivalent.

Exactly, the moment you get one of this into a play group --> H&S alarm bells
http://www.rospa.com/leisure-safety/advice/trampoline/
Tons of this injuries in medical journals such as this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27528404
I am surprised these are not banned, if only terrorists sold them , they would have been banned from sale.

I'm not saying that they are not dangerous.

Most things in life are dangerous to a certain degree.

Where do we draw the line and say "You know what s#1t happens and I'm not going to stop living just because it does"?

This seems to me to be a step too far in the wrong direction.

Who pays for these unnecesary injuries, the parents or the public?! If one has to own costs then one will find a big drop out in playing with them.

He is not just letting people know about the dangers, which should be clear to most people and are clearly stated on all trampolines I've seen, he is recommending that they only be used under professional supervision.
#13
this was on the radio and they were blaming the John Lewis advert for future injuries, not like most streets have had trampolines in their gardens for years. We took ours to one of these new trampoline parks that have sprung up, all was ok but I was reading about the number of injuries in these types of centres, one centre had a what I thought was a massive number of injuries in just a few months. Thought it was odd but their spokes man said their numbers were less than the national average, so its ok to have lots of injuries if you have less than the average :)

What is unnecessary about the injuries?

If one has to own costs then one will find a big drop out in playing with them.[/quote]As a "parent", part of the "public" and a taxpayer I would argue I am already owning the cost of any injuries. Fortunately, despite the lethal nature of trampolines, none of my three boys has over a combined 20 years of usage (and 4 trampolines!) actually had anything more than a minor bump. :p

As is sensible do your own risk evaluation work out what is acceptable to you, and supervise as appropriate.

I agree, apart from not understanding what you mean by "every benefit house in every scheme".

Are you trying to infer than having a trampoline is an indication of a household requiring supplements to their income?

I'm sure if they're setup correctly and the kids have some basic training on how to use them (ie one person at a time), they're fine.

It's when one's just dropped in a garden with the instructions ignored and 2 or 3 kids all jump on at once it all goes wrong. .

It's an excused for every bum parent to throw the kids out in to the garden & bounce for hours & hours so the parents can go back in the house & smoke more weed,without having to share it with the kids oO

I'd disagree
I was good at it in school but when I joined the military we had a sports afternoon and on one occasion we had trampolining and I was doing good - pikes somersaults etc until I failed and busted my wrist on a back somersault and that was 2 days before I had my chin busted by a squaddie leaving to become an amateur rugby player who deckd me for little reason. (Yep wrist in plaster and 10 weeks of rice pudding or soup ffs)

But you don't live life in a protected bubble - yes some people are irresponsible parents with their trampoline purchase but the kids will learn a life lesson the hard way.

People think parkour is a new invention - I was jumping out of bedroom windows, climbing roofs and jumping from single storey rooftops onto walls in the 70's and I'd hazard a guess that Deeky was doing similar 100 years or more before me ;)

You only use a hot spoon on your best boots to remove the dimples - normal work boots it's just toe cap and heel

Then it's Cherry Blossom (no not the porn star the shoe polish) rubbed in with your index finger until it becomes tacky dry leave to dry completely and work on the other boot/shoe then possibly go back to the first and re-apply more polish then back to the other then with a duster (normal yellow cloth thingy) and spit you continually rub in small circles swapping between boots - if you want a very high shine but one that doesn't last in wet conditions or flakes off easily you can use a dab of gas lighter fuel with the spit

They don't do it so much these days as it's considered bullying wtf? bullying in my era was when someone who came off a 14 day exercise didn't wash/shower because they were a smelly git and went to bed so 4 of us jumped him - strapped him to the bed (good n proper) and dangled his bed out the window

Or another time took him to the showers, stripped him naked and used Vim with bog brushes to clean him

Just back from the police station. Apparently they don't sell weed in Waitrose, the manager got quite shirty when I asked them to double-check out back.
