Introducing Flexi-Bounce Therapy 

 

Making Therapy Fun – Every Day

 

 

Most teachers and care staff who provide Rebound Therapy, know of the benefits and would like to be able to provide it on a daily basis.

A common issue for many special needs schools and centres is that they can only provide Rebound Therapy sessions once or twice a week due to their number of students and only having one or two full sized trampolines. And during holiday times, sessions stop altogether.
Some schools and centres are not able to provide Rebound Therapy at all because they do not have the budget or space for a full sized trampoline.

 

There is now a solution to this dilemma:

 

Flexi-Bounce Therapy for Children and Adults with Additional Needs.


ReboundTherapy.org have developed a comprehensive, graded exercise and development programme for the use of an orthopaedic quality rebounder by children and adults across a wide spectrum of additional needs. The programme is called 'Flexi-Bounce Therapy'. It enables students and service users to benefit from fun therapy sessions on a daily basis in between their scheduled Rebound Therapy sessions, and at home during holidays.

 

 

Flexi-Bounce Therapy can provide many of the huge numbers of benefits of Rebound Therapy, for children and adults across virtually the whole spectrum of disabilities and additional needs.

Some of these benefits include the development and improvement of:  

  • Strength of limbs
  • Relaxation
  • Numeracy
  • Trust and confidence in Teacher / Assistant
  • Patience
  • Communication
  • Colour recognition
  • Muscle tone
  • Height and depth perception
  • Eye contact
    and most importantly:
  • FUN AND ENJOYMENT!

Further information about contra-indications is provided in the training course packs for school and centre use, and the downloadable exercise programme for home use.

 

There are also a number of other conditions which may be considered as increased risk for any type of trampoline use, and it is necessary for the teacher or carer to have a knowledge of disabilities and precautions which should be taken to minimise risk.
