Trampoline safety is an important consideration. Trampolines can be fun, but they also can be dangerous, as there are numerous trampoline-related injuries each year. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has reported an estimate of more than 75,000 trampoline-related injuries per year. A person looking for the safest trampoline should look for one that has several safety features on it.

In-ground

An in-ground trampoline is one of the safest kinds of trampolines. This is true because a child (or an adult) who loses control will not fall as far on an in-ground trampoline as he or she would on an elevated trampoline.

Enclosed

In the last decade, the number of trampoline-related injuries has decreased thanks to the increased use of enclosures around the trampolines being sold.

Spring Covers

A spring cover is a circular cover that hides the springs of the trampoline. It's an important safety feature because it helps people avoid getting fingers or hair caught in between the springs.

Stability

Above-ground trampolines can be safe as long as they are stable. A trampoline that is on a hill or incline is more likely to tip and cause injuries.

Supervised

As most parents will attest to, the safest trampolines are those that are supervised. The closer a parent watches, the less likely a child is to get injured while playing on a trampoline.
