Yes! Not only is using a bellicon safe for those dealing with osteoporosis and osteopenia, it can actually help to increase and maintain bone density.
Bouncing on a bellicon produces gravitational forces two to three times greater than normal, providing the weight-bearing forces your bones need to build up and stay strong. Rebounding, especially on the bellicon’s highly-elastic bungee bands, is an ideal way to help keep these issues from progressing.
Also, because rebounding on the bellicon is a very low-impact form of exercise, you can get this beneficial weight-bearing exercise without straining joints or cartilage.
When choosing your bungee strength, make sure to select a bungee that is more firm than your optimal strength. This will help provide the force necessary to help in the fight against osteoporosis.
The severity of osteoporosis varies greatly and the training recommendations are influenced by many different, individual factors. If you are unsure or have advanced osteoporosis, we recommend that you seek medical advice in advance. It is important to know that you do not have to jump high on the bellicon mini trampoline in order to experience effective pressure and tension on the bones. It is enough to bounce lightly, because the most important thing is that you are moving, using your muscles and stimulating your bone metabolism. In addition, you can easily train your balance and thus prevent falls on the trampoline.
