Why the children who are under 6 years old are better not play trampoline or have to play under the parent’s supervision?

Why the children who are under 6 years old are better not play trampoline? A lot of children were playing on the same trampoline in a trampolining park: a child who is 6 or 7-year-old jumped too harsh and threw a small kid down. The kid tried to stand up several times, but suddenly he felt a sharp pain and then can never stand up…
After treatment in the hospital, the doctor diagnosed “the distal physical injury” and needed surgery. Although the fracture can heal, the most worrying thing is that the risk of developmental deformity in the child’s fracture is extremely high! Once there is a deformity, it is necessary to repeat orthodontic treatment. In a future life, it will be entangled with the health of this leg…

Maybe you think this is a big fuss, just jumping on a trampoline, and a protective net, injury is not possible to happen. This is a Probability problem. Once it happened, then the consequences are often more serious than we think.
Moreover, the impact of the trampoline rebounding far exceeds our imagination, saying that it is “high-risk sports” is not exaggerated.

We consulted an Orthopedist:

A. The strength of children’s bones is lower than that of ligaments and joint capsules. Generally, violence will be released on the bones first, so relatively it does not need too much violence to cause children’s fractures. For example, stepping on empty, or stepping into a pit, or somersault can cause children’s fractures in different parts.
B. Just rely on their own weight and acceleration, the kids will have the strength equivalent to several times of their weight or even stronger. Especially when children jump too long, too tired, unable to control their own body, with wrong landing posture, it is easy to fracture, such as a spiral fracture.

How to avoid injury or fracture?

1)If the playground has a trampoline arranged for one person, then choose this kind of trampoline. If it can not one person for one trampoline, try to select as few people as possible. Once there are more people entering, they will take him away from the trampoline;
2)If possible, let him wear antiskid socks;
3)It’s better buy one small trampoline, then he could play at home.
4)Do not play for more than 10 minutes at one time. You have to ask him to take a rest after 10 minutes.
