Kids' trampoline injuries take another bounce upwards
from HealthDay News
Trampolines aren't just for backyards anymore, and the rise in commercial trampoline parks may be sparking a rise in kids' injuries, a new report finds. "While trampolines are a great source of fun and exercise for children, the potential for injury, particularly in recreational areas with an underlying business incentive, needs to be recognized," stressed study author Dr. Nancy Hadley Miller. Her team tracked U.S. government health data and found that the incidence of broken bones suffered by children while on trampolines has risen by an average of nearly 4% each year between 2008 and 2017.
