The UK Based International Body for Rebound Therapy
The Phrase ‘REBOUND THERAPY’ was coined by the founder, E.G. Anderson, in 1969 to describe the use of trampolines in providing therapeutic exercise and recreation for people with a wide range of special needs. Participants range from mild to severe physical disabilities and from mild to profound and multiple learning disabilities, including dual sensory impairment and autistic spectrum.
Rebound Therapy describes a specific methodology, assessment and programme of use of trampolines to provide opportunities for enhanced movement patterns, therapeutic positioning, exercise and recreation for a wide range of users with additional needs.
Rebound Therapy is used to facilitate movement, promote balance, promote an increase or decrease in muscle tone, promote relaxation, promote sensory integration, improve fitness and exercise tolerance, and to improve communication skills.
Student’s progress is recorded using the Winstrada development programme . Grades 1, 2 and 3 of this programme are based entirely on the original, accredited and approved ‘Eddy Anderson model’ training course as detailed on this website. When working with students with profound or complex needs, progress can be accurately measured and recorded in conjunction with the Winstrada development programme.
You can find information on centres here that are run by staff who are qualified and validated by ReboundTherapy.org and provide open sessions for people with disabilities. This information was correct at the time it was provided; you may wish to check that this is still the case before booking.
