Rebound Therapy is an intensive 1:1 technique for people with moderate-to-severe disabilities, and comprises the therapeutic use of trampolines to encourage movement, exercise and recreation. Physically, it helps to increase strength, balance and co-ordination. Emotionally, it aids confidence-building, communication and social skills. Rebound Therapy is a great exercise for most people who are wheelchair users, helping with physical health and wellbeing as well as encouraging the development of positive interactions.
Rebound Therapy activities are available in classes and 1:1 sessions which must be booked in advance and drop in sessions at specific times (see class timetable).
Trampolining is an aerial acrobatic sport, which begins with basic jumping skills and works all the way up to multiple twisting multiple somersaults. Jump Space classes offer coaching for recreation based work (not competitive) with coaches being able to teach up to double somersaults. As trampolining is a dangerous activity all our coaches work to a programme using safe progression of skills at all times to reduce the risk of injury for the participants.
Trampolining is a great activity for fitness and for improving Health & Wellbeing. It is a low impact activity which is suitable for all ages above 4 years and is also a FUN way to exercise and socialise.
