Rebound therapy is a rehabilitation service provided for people with learning or physical disabilities. It’s a form of physiotherapy involving the use of a trampoline and has become incredibly popular with people of all ages. Participants gain tremendous benefits from taking part in the sessions, helping them to overcome difficulties relating to physical health, communication, self-esteem and confidence and helping them have fun.
A hoist is used to raise the participant onto the trampoline and cushions or gym balls can be used to support them during the session.
Rebound therapy allows people with disabilities to bounce, stretch, and increase mobility. It allows them to engage in physical activity which can boost their confidence and motivation. The physical nature of the therapy can provide a relief of tension and provides the opportunity to have a sense of choice and control in the sessions when there appears to be very little choice and control in their lives. Rebound therapy also helps families to feel positive about the lives of their disabled family members.
