When helping to ease symptoms and improve the wellbeing of loved ones with cystic fibrosis, a trampoline isn’t usually on the list of therapy options to consider. But there are many benefits to trampolining that parents of children with cystic fibrosis should be aware of.

Anyone familiar with cystic fibrosis knows that daily exercise and therapeutic maintenance is needed to minimise build up in the lungs and airways. Being able to jump on a trampoline is a fun way to get the exercise needed while also helping to clear build up in the lungs.

While jumping on a trampoline isn’t a traditional method for clearing the airways, many young cystic fibrosis patients are already using trampolines to support their regular physiotherapy..

Some physicians and physiotherapists have also used trampolines as a physiotherapeutic tool for cystic fibrosis patients to help with :

  • Enhancing cardiopulmonary performance
  • Encouraging sputum production
  • Improving general wellbeing

If you do decide to purchase a trampoline for your child who has cystic fibrosis, it’s always recommended to buy a quality product where safety is the number one priority. Because, while the benefits of a trampoline are clear, there’s always the risk of falls and injury.

Vuly Play is one such brand worth considering, with trampolines full of top quality safety features including a tall safety net surrounding the entire mat and springs which are completely outside the contact area, to prevent any spring or frame injuries.

Thanks to the excellent cardio and respiratory workout trampolines can provide, there’s no denying the benefits of this type of exercise for young people with cystic fibrosis.
