The study states that the injury toll between 2002 and 2011 included nearly 289,000 people mostly children and racked up emergency department costs of more than $1 billion of which $400 million was spent on broken bone injuries. About 60 percent of the broken bone injuries occurred in the upper extremities such as hands, fingers, forearms and elbows while lower extremity fractures were more common in the legs and ankles, the study states. Also, spine, head and rib injuries accounted for 4 percent of fractures, according to researchers. The study has pointed out that a vast majority of these trampoline injuries occurred at home.
