If in doubt, you should first seek medical advice, as it depends on the type of prosthetic and your individual state of health. Sport is possible with most modern prostheses.
Training on the bellicon is also possible with a knee prosthesis as well as with a hip prosthesis. Of course, the training goal should be sensibly adapted to the state of health. Balance, coordination, strengthening and endurance training are particularly suitable for building up muscles and improving mobility. High jumps are not recommended.
With its soft mat, the bellicon offers a wide variety of exercises for these goals.

Question: I have a bellicon and had a total hip replacement a year ago. I have resumed activities such as swimming, pilates, yoga, and spinning. Is it safe to use the bellicon? My surgeon did not know what this was, and I know that I can no longer run outside. I think it is safe, but I wanted to make sure.
Answer: If your physician or healthcare provider would allow you to do very light jogging, then using the bellicon should be fine for you since the bellicon offers a very low-impact workout...much gentler than jogging or calisthenics.
One of our customers, who had a total hip replacement, sent us this statement:
I had a total hip replacement (on the right) four years ago. Because of bouncing on a bellicon that I started immediately afterwards (5 days later), I never needed a walking aid. I could walk right away. After three months, I did not have a single side-effect. I bounce every day on the bellicon and feel hearty.
