The Phrase 'Rebound Therapy' was coined by the founder, E.G. Anderson, in 1969 and describes a specific methodology, assessment and programme of use of trampolines to provide 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.
Students' 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 training course as detailed on the ReboundTherapy.org website. When working with students with profound or complex needs, progress can be accurately measured and recorded using the Huddersfield Functional Index in conjunction with the Winstrada development programme.
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.
The principles of Rebound Therapy form the basis of all gymnastic movement and are widely considered to be a logical and advisable starting point for trampoline coach training – even for those who have no intention of teaching people with disabilities.
The official worldwide federation and consultancy for Rebound Therapy is ReboundTherapy.org. They are responsible for the development and provision of the certificated and accredited training courses, and for the development of training course tutors worldwide.
