In recent years, trampolines have not only been used by professional gymnasts, but they have been used more and more by non-professionals, adults and children alike.

Jumping on a trampoline has become a popular recreational activity for kids.  Many families have trampolines set up in their backyards; therefore, owners and parents need to be aware of the dangers they can pose. 

Just last month, a popular trampoline was recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in conjunction with Sportspower, the company that makes the trampoline.

The metal leg on the trampoline could move and puncture the jumping area.  The exposed metal leg may cause cuts, lacerations and even deep puncture wounds to children and adults.  Click here to access News: Parents' Alert: Trampoline Recall Due To Injury Hazard

Many parents who own a trampoline would normally let their children go in the backyard and jump on the trampoline after school.  The thought that the trampoline could be recalled probably never even came to mind.

Therefore, it is probably a good idea to check your trampoline before children engage in this popular recreational activity.  At the very least, check the trampoline after the winter, before your kids jump on it for the first time.  The reason is because the winter weather may have damaged the trampoline and compromised its safety.

Further, the recreational activity of jumping on a trampoline may not only harm your children but also their friends who are over for a play date.  You may be exposing yourself to liability if another child is injured on the trampoline.
