Paul Kaye
By Paul Kaye, course tutor and consultant at Rebound Therapy UK
“We had been looking for some time to find a mini trampoline that was suitable for disabled people to use as a complementary activity to their Rebound Therapy programme. Most rebounders on the market have a bounce that is too hard for the clients we work with, but we heard about the bellicon® and agreed to trial it for a period of five months using people with a wide variety of disabilities. We found that the bellicon® with its elastic cables and slower, softer bounce is an ideal product for our purposes: it is fun, gives confidence in movement, is usually achievable (good target/goal setting), develops fitness and gives general confidence and a feeling of well being.”

Andreas Sperber, chief physiotherapist
“For several years, we have been working with the highly flexible bellicon® trampolines in the Schwarzwaldklinik Bad Rippoldsau. Together with music, to the rhythm of the beat, this form of «movement» therapy is a very easy way to exercise for all those who either dislike it, or don’t do sport at all. When we explain the advantages and effectiveness, the patients are quickly convinced. This is clearly the basis for exercise that is to be effective, and that can also be continued at home. A little exercise at a time can give the feeling: «I can do it»! These successes are very important for the next step. This brings about a positive feeling for life and more self-esteem.”

Dr. Christoph Altmann, head physician cardiology
“By using the bellicon® ergometry, it is possible for therapeutically useful and cardiologically justifiable motion sequences to be defined on the trampoline and implemented at home during daily training sessions. The exercises we have developed on the bellicon® trampoline are effective, safe and for patients who are well prepared, they ensure that the therapy is not discontinued. The high fun factor plays a big part in this. The additional need for upright posture, coordination and the fun gained from this form of exercise when practiced during therapy sessions on the bellicon® at home, all lead to a better quality of life and better adjustment to domestic or professional stress for heart patients.”
Christoph Niedermeyer
Christoph Niedermeyer, graduate sports teacher
“The bellicon® is one of the most versatile exercise devices, with which I can accomplish endurance, strength and especially coordination as a basis for future orientated health training. Everybody who’s tried it out also knows that it’s fun as well. There is no other exercise device that connects all elements of effective training as uniquely as the bellicon® trampoline does, not only in preventative treatment, but also in the rehabilitation of children and adults. Only five to ten minutes a day on this domestic fitness centre are enough to minimize long-term health costs and to increase our quality of life with more fun.”
Michaela Bimbi-Dresp
Michaela Bimbi-Dresp, Pilates instructor
“Here at Pilatesbody in Munich the bellicon® is a popular accessory device for the Pilates exercises and ideally supplements the classical repertoire of mats and large exercise machines. Bouncing on it is fun, increases proprioception and assists balance as well as coordination. Because of the mat being unstable, the deep lying, stabilizing muscles of the body and legs in particular are strongly activated. The bellicon® trampoline is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. This rebounder isn’t just fun, but also fulfills the point of a health orientated training. It therefore fits perfectly into our exercise philosophy: to gently train our body from inside to out!”
Oliver Härting
Oliver Härting, health coach
“The trainings device of the moment, a bellicon® mini trampoline with a highly flexible rebounding mat, leaves nothing to be wished for. An eventful day, where learning is fun, finds exertion and relaxation. A trainings device, derived from nature, the movement, swinging in a woman’s womb. People who enjoy using the bellicon® trampoline never forget it. Exercise is the basis for everything in life. Every activity during the day is achieved through exercise. It is a creative interaction of cognitive and practical skills that everybody uses in their private or professional life. The bellicon® supports and forms these abilities through regular exercise, with a view to exertion and relaxation.”
Isabella Kocyla
Isabella Kocyla, group fitness coordinator Aggua Sports Club
“Since March 2010, our members have been training enthusiastically and with motivation on the bellicon® rebounder. It offers our sports club an intelligent, whole body, workout of a special kind. For our Group Fitness division it was the best possible investment you can imagine. Sensational! Especially our “best age” members love these courses, but so of course do our youngsters. At our Group Fitness division, we were especially able to inspire those members who didn’t like to do classes and who now regularly leave a bellicon® class smiling and return for more. A high fun factor is therefore guaranteed. ”

Marcus Schaub, alternative practitioner and physiotherapist
“Swinging on the highly flexible trampolines made by the bellicon company is an effective and motivating therapy for my patients. I use the high fun factor and the healthy mobilization on the trampoline when there are problems with the spinal column (the rhythmic changes in gravity are especially good for the intervertebral discs), with the joints, obesity, muscular tension, depression and many other illnesses. It’s also great homework for the patients – doing therapeutic exercises on their trampoline. There’s only one disadvantage: those patients who really do exercise regularly on a bellicon® at home, hardly ever come back to my practice. ;-)”
