Rebound Therapy

Helping children
bounce back

What child doesn’t want to be active, move around and have fun? Those who visit Rainbow Hub are no different, and our Rebound Therapy sessions help them to do so.

Rebound Therapy involves the use of a trampoline to facilitate movement, encourage therapeutic exercise and provide recreation for children with physical disabilities. Promoting balance, relaxation, sensory integration and an increase or decrease in muscle tone, it also improves overall fitness, exercise tolerance and communication skills.

  • general questions
  • Is Rebound Therapy suitable for my child?

    Rebound Therapy is suitable for many children and young people but for some conditions there is an increased risk.  Rebound Therapy is not suitable for those who are pregnant or have spinal rods, Brittle Bones Disease, detaching retinas, confirmed Atlanto Axial Instability or Dwarfism.

  • How will my child benefit?

    Children benefit from Rebound Therapy in many different ways.  For some children it will be of physical benefit, for some it will be of sensory benefit and for others it will be a calming experience.  We will work with you and your child to look at how rebound therapy can best help.

  • How long is a Rebound Therapy Session?

    Our Rebound Therapy sessions are for 1 hour but the time spent on the trampoline can vary for every child depending on their need.  After the initial assessment, if Rebound Therapy is suitable and a session time is available you will be offered a regular weekly session for a period of 12 weeks.
