Designed by Dad
Dr. Keith Alexander is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Canterbury, in Christchurch, New Zealand. Over 15 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 it's original prototype, but the unique safety features of the design remain the same.
Dr. Alexander suceeded in creating the first truly innovative trampoline design variant since the original trampoline was released in the 1930s.
Springfree™ Trampoline is different. Like running shoes, software or kitchen appliances, there are followers and then there are innovators—you know right away which brands lead in these categories—and Springfree™ Trampoline is the innovator in trampolines.
We are committed to providing a high quality safer trampoline alternative for families - and aim to reduce trampoline related injuries worldwide.
The Definition of Safety
The Springfree™ is ‘a trampoline that’s not a trampoline as you know it’. Springfree™ Trampoline has created the world's safest trampoline products that effectively remove all the traditional impact areas that cause equipment induced trampoline injuries.
A strong, taut sheet, usually of canvas, attached with springs to a metal frame and used for gymnastic springing and tumbling.
Spring·free Trampoline (proper noun)
A next-generation design trampoline removing all dangerous design elements present in conventional trampolines – the steel coil springs, the frame at the jumping surface, rigid steel enclosure poles and the risk of falling off.
