If every Doctor knew about a Rebounder- they just might prescribe a daily dose of it. It passes all of the strictest testing and improves your health in more ways than you can count on our fingers. There are so many benefits to rebounding that it seems too good to be true. While using a bellicon or a Lymphaciser, you are literally engaging every single muscle in your body, powered by the force of gravity, and then relaxing them as you descend.

Treadmills are certainly one of the first things that people think of when considering home exercise equipment, and for good reason- they work well. But what are the differences between a rebounder and a treadmill?

The lymphatic system acts somewhat like the “garbage disposal of the body”- a complex network of vessels and organs that recycles body fluid, in the form of “lymph”, targeting and removing invading bacteria, viruses and waste. This waste disposal system relies completely on our movement, unlike for example the cardiovascular system where the heart automatically pumps fluid. Instead, the lymph system relies on our body movements as a pump.
“…for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running, a finding that might help identify acceleration parameters needed for the design of remedial procedures to avert deconditioning in persons exposed to weightlessness. “
The above statement is one of several made in a scientific study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology 49(5): 881-887, 1980, which confirms many of the statements previously made in The Miracles of Rebound Exercise, 1979. Read more
