Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The nature of trampoline injuries may have changed with the increasing popularity of recreational jump parks. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed evaluating domestic trampoline and commercial jump park injuries over a 2-year period. RESULTS: There were 439 trampoline injuries: 150 (34%) at jump parks versus 289 (66%) on home trampolines. Fractures and dislocations accounted for 55% of jump park injuries versus 44% of home trampoline injuries. In adults, fractures and dislocations accounted for 45% of jump park injuries versus 17% of home trampoline injuries. More lower extremity fractures were seen at jump parks versus home trampolines in both children and adults. Adults had a 23% surgical rate with jump park injuries versus a 10% surgical rate on home trampolines. DISCUSSION: Trampoline-related injury distribution included a higher percentage of fractures/dislocations, lower extremity fractures, fractures in adults, and surgical interventions associated with jump parks versus home trampolines. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level III.
