Which Rebounder is Best for you?

Soft Bounce vs. Hard Bounce

 

  1. Soft Bounce: easier on knee joints, best for beginners,

Best for seniors just starting to workout for the first time

(Note: Stabilizer Bar should be added to your purchase)

 

  1. Hard Bounce: seniors who have already been working out with strong knees and quads, also for people weighing 300-600 lbs., as noted by Needak Mfg.

 

  1. Strong athletic seniors: use hard bounce

 

How to get started:

Health Bounce for Seniors

**Please wear sneakers or gym shoes every time**

this will allow for stability in feet, ankles, legs and knees

 

The health bounce is the action where your feet never leave the rebounder.  This still has a positive effective, you are still strengthening the entire body, and you are still draining your lymphatic system. Remember; Never let your feet leave the rebounder mat.  Beginners should use this subtle bounce action for at least 3 months starting at 5 minutes per day, for the first month. Ultimately working up to 15 minutes per day by the 4th month.

 

Remember: your feet never leave the mat and always wear your athletic shoes. Use your quads to create a subtle jump movement without letting your feet lift off the mat. A subtle bend in the knees is helpful.  See video demonstration.

Scientific Studies

  1. A study of the Journal of Sport and Health Science from December 2016 shows that trampolining influences bone strength; it says, “trampolinists” bone size and strength at both the radius and tibia in the knee, was higher than non-trampolinists. Furthermore, Trampolinists have denser and thicker Trabeculae coupled with a larger bone adding to higher bone strength. Read study: Study #2

 

 

  1. A study of the Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand of September 2015 shows not only benefits to bone mineral density, it also includes overall fitness related benefits as follows: the study showed performing the floor exercises on a mini trampoline (rebounder)
  2. Increased bone formation, and decreased bone resorption, improved health related fitness, balance and leg muscular strength, read study.

Results: Trampolinists had higher bone density at the hip and spine, greater trabecular and thicker trabeculae at the tibia as well as larger bone density at the tibia and radius.  Trampolinists also had higher muscle strength at the lower body.

 

Additional benefits of rebounding include: increased lymphocyte activity throughout the body and drainage, physically strengthens muscular system, easy on joints, helps improve balance, strengthens cells, and improves cardiovascular function.

 

Rebounding for lymph drainage is important for your overall health. Lymph nodes play a vital part in the body’s protection against infection.  The lymphatic system is a comprehensive drainage system that aids the body in keeping fluid levels in balance and guarding the body against infections.

Rebounding is a great FUN exercise that reduces body fat ... It also firms legs, thighs, abdomen, arms, and hips. Rebounding increases agility; improves the sense of balance; strengthens muscles overall; provides an aerobic effect for the heart. It rejuvenates the body when it's tired, and generally puts one in a state of health and fitness. Rebound on a Needak rebounder with the soft bounce springs to get a great, fun workout.

Tony Robbins, an international lecturer, advisor to world leaders, and author of Unlimited Power ... calls rebounding "one of the best all-weather aerobic exercises." He points out that it "strengthens every organ in the body," and suggests that readers "please take the time to pursue this life-enhancing form of exercise."

Soft Bounce vs Hard Bounce

The Needak hard-bounce folding rebounders have stiffer springs which creates a harder surface when compared to the Needak soft-bounce folding rebounders. The hard-bounce is designed for very intense athletes and for people over 300 lbs. and up to 600 lbs.

Stabilizer Bar vs No Stabilizer Bar 

Rebounding with a stabilizer bar keeps you bouncing in the center of your rebounder. Many users rebound while watching a video, television program or talking, singing or listening to others. Stabilizer bars are great for the beginner or for seniors who want the extra stability and safety.

 Rebounder FAQ's

Question: What is the difference between the Needak® rebounder and others?

Answer: Needak® is a manufacturer of rebounders -- and rebounders are the ONLY thing we manufacture. Models available through discount stores or marketing/promotion companies are imported. We have control over all aspects of production -- they get the most inexpensive model they can (Generally quality is not an issue with marketers, only price).

Needak® insists on producing the highest quality rebounder. Our price may be a few dollars more, but you get a rebounder that will provide many years of service and is more gentle on your body. If it doesn't have the Needak label on it, you can be almost 100% certain it is an Asian import.

Question: Is your rebounder design outdated?

Answer: Needak® offers a solid, time tested design.  For instance, our hinge design is virtually indestructible.  It costs us more to build it, but we know it will provide years of service and establishes a solid and stable rebounding platform. 

Over the years, various "pretty" new designs have been offered.  Some of these endangered the user and eventually all have failed.  (Frankly, a good spring cover hides most of the design elements anyway.)

Question: Why is your rebounder "round" instead of some other shape?

Answer: The round design is the best because it places even stress force upon all components.  As you rebound, the same force is applied to the mat, springs, and frame in front of you, behind you, and on either side of you.

Any design which places springs in a corner, those springs to absorb unequal impact and they tend to break more frequently than the springs along the straight sides which do not flex as much.

Question: Why is your Soft-bounce spring better than other types of springs for rebounding?

Answer: Needak® Mfg. innovated the Soft-Bounce™ spring which absorbs as much as 85% of the impact of each bounce.  This is due to the unique barrel shape of the spring.  The diameter of the coils increases as you move toward the center of the spring. 

There are generally 2 types of springs found on imported rebounders.  The classic spring found on low-end imported rebounders is a shorter spring and tends to be very stiff.  A few imports use a spring that looks like our Soft-Bounce™ spring.

Fact:  Springs will break.  Common sense tells you that if you flex metal, it will eventually break.  We do not make exaggerated or unfounded claims about our springs.  It would surprise you how many people come to us for springs and relate stories of dissatisfaction with marketing companies who told them things such as, "Our springs never break, that is why we don't carry them in stock." or "You obviously misused your rebounder to cause breakage."  If you leave a rebounder in the closet and never use it, you won't break springs.  If you get the benefits out of a rebounder, spring replacement is an inexpensive maintenance item.

Question: What is the new Hard-Bounce Spring?  

Answer: Needak® proudly introduced the Hard-Bounce spring in February, 2008 as a response to the problems found in the classic rebounder spring. Customers who are over 300 pounds cannot generally use the Soft-bounce spring because it stretches enough to allow them to touch the floor as they bounce. For years they have been forced into the "Classic" rebounder spring which was of shorter length and did not allow this to happen. Unfortunately it was also very stiff and would allow some jarring to the joints as they bounced. This stiffness also cause premature spring failure. The new Hard-bounce spring is styled after the Soft-bounce, but only absorbs 35% of the bounce giving more support to heavier users and professional athletes. It has a considerably longer life and is interchangeable in length with our Soft-bounce spring.

Question: Is there any assembly required?

Answer: The folding rebounder come delivered folded in half if it's a folding rebounder. You would have to open it and then seat the legs on the platform pin and then it's ready to use. On the non fold, just seat the legs on the platform pin. If the customer also orders the stabilizer bar they would also need to attach it before use. The leg tips would be already removed on 2 of the legs of the rebounder. The customer would need to slide the legs of the bar onto those legs of the rebounder and then put the legs tips back on.

Question: Is the folder rebounder as strong as the non folding rebounder?

Answer: The folding rebounder is just as stable as the nonfold. They both have the lifetime of the purchaser warranty. It is only for the convenience of the customer who might not have a lot of space or someone who wanted to take it along with them on trips.

 Why is the spring cover an optional accessory?

The true purpose of the "spring cover" is to deflect your foot away from the bullhorn of the mat cleat.  For many years, all rebounders used a bullhorn style cleat which had a metal end that protruded between the spring sets.  The metal "horn" was used to keep the cleat from sliding out from the fabric tabs. 

 

You still see this sort of cleat on cheap Asian imports.  The bullhorn allows the mat to be produce cheaply as it does not need to be precisely positioned.  Production speed can be increased significantly due to this sloppy mat construction .


Needak uses a safety cleat which is enclosed by the fabric tab. 

There are no metal protrusions and therefore no need for the spring cover.
