Designed by Dad
Dr. Keith Alexander is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Canterbury, in Christchurch, New Zealand. Over 20 years ago, the father of three decided a trampoline would be a good addition to the family backyard. However, after researching traditional designed trampolines for his family it became apparent spring designs were dangerously flawed.
He was shocked to discover the high frequency of hospital visits by children being treated for trampoline related injuries, yet it seemed no manufacterers seriously considered the safety of their products (close to 100,000 US children are admitted to emergency departments annually).
Dr. Alexander set out to create a safe trampoline - removing the hard surfaces that cause injury (including the springs and frame) and the risk of falling off. He also believed it was critical to use the most advanced and highest quality materials to create a superior design.
After many prototypes and design trials, Dr. Alexander developed a "spring-free" trampoline he was confident was safe for his kids to use. The Springfree™ Trampoline has gone through many design revisions since its original prototype, but the unique safety features of the design remain the same.
