It may seem like a good idea and feel good, but the ligaments in the pelvic floor will stretch. If the pelvis is tilted a little, the stress will shake your organs and they will literally slide out of the fascia that holds them altogether. I can’t find the link to a study I found after my whole pelvic floor significantly dropped one day after using a vibration machine, but the theory is the same with a rebounder. And if it can affect the pelvic organs, other parts of the body, like your brain and cervical area might be susceptible to damage. Sorry, I didn’t believe this would happen until it happened to me.

I wouldn't have guessed those specifics, but the connective tissue problem is what's kept me from buying one.

I was looking into them again but the ones I looked at were very expensive (think Bulletproof website). Maybe these were the vibration plates rather than the rebounders, but there was a claim that the best for the lymph system is (I think it was) 30 hz. Studies???

The one on the bulletproof site is a vibration plate. The one I got was a Jumpsport, they offer variety of models. Think I got the 570pro on amazon prime day so it was significantly cheaper.

I love using it though. Have room for it in my home office and find myself using it to break up the work day and also when I wake up in the morning. Super quiet and it's fun!

Thanks! Well, I'm 63 :lol: , but have jumped since I was a little kid & used to teach (35 years ago) a jump rope & medicine ball class that was formerly taught by a boxer before he left & they asked me to take it over. Jumping rope never gives me any issues.


This is good to know! I jump rope in between sets of weightlifting.

I have had a rebounder for years and I like to put on oldies and start jumping! Rebounding to music breaks the monotony for me. If weather permits, I put it outside on the deck to increase the benefits of getting fresh air and sunshine on top of a good cardio and lymphatic workout!

I have had a rebounder for years and have started using mine again regularly. It stands to reason that the G-force of jumping continuously for 15 or 20 minutes, which provides a great lymphatic massage would do the same for the brain's lymphatic waste disposal described in this article. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-05763-0 and this one on nih.gov website.https://www.nih.gov/news-events/nih-research-matters/impaired-brain-drainage-aging-alzheimers

Brian, sorry....I didn't see the question until now. The vibration machine is also called a vibration plate....you stand on it and it sends vibrating pulses through your body. It's the same theory as a chi-machine, which I also have.
