Clinical Trial Shows That Bouncing Stops Bone Loss

Dr. Joachim H. Schulz 28.03.2014

A clinical trial was conducted by Dr. Joachim H. Schulz that focused on rebounding and its ability to fight osteoporosis.

Dr Schulz is a specialist in general medicine with additional training and expertise in naturopathy, diabetology and clinical nutrition. He also has long-term clinical experience in surgery, cardiology, allergy and naturopathy and is Vice President of the Medical Society of Preventive Medicine and Naturopathic Therapies.

Here is an excerpt of his findings:

"Bouncing on a highly flexible trampoline affects our whole body. Everything is trained. Whilst descending, our muscles, sinews, ligaments and bones are slightly pressed together by the force of gravity, and then relaxed again whilst swinging upwards. So by bouncing on the trampoline, all the cells in our organism are effectively trained.

Following a study with osteoporosis patients, we were able to clearly prove that bone loss was stopped by bouncing on a bellicon mini trampoline. Coordination and reflexes were definitely improved, which also prevents breakages, and by swinging on the trampoline the bone density levels remained stable."


A similar study, published in 2019 in The Korean Journal of Sport, showed significant improvement in bone mineral density from bouncing on a mini-trampoline four times a week. The study, which was conducted with women whose average age was 45, also demonstrated several other important health and fitness-related benefits.
