Uses
  To reduce the impact stress on joints  
"Scientific investigations with regards to impact forces have reported that between 27% to 70% of runners or joggers are injured in the first year after commencement of running"

Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes were originally developed for joggers, to reduce the impact stress on joints. 


Whether you are an avid jogger, a serious runner or a casual health-conscious exerciser, you will quickly appreciate the incredible number of benefits that Kangoo Jumps provide. Reducing impact shocks to your ankles, knees, shins, hips, lower back, and spine, by up to 80% is only one of them. 

 A Swiss chiropodist study shows that Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes correct pronation and supination conditions originating from the lower leg, while they are being used. 

Stress reduction and correcting pronation and supination are two of the many reasons doctors recommend Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes, for rehabilitation after surgery & for prevention of injuries. These benefits help explain why, so many people who at one point could no longer jog or exercise can jog / exercise again in comfort, with confidence and without pain.

“I hadn't been able to jog or attend aerobic classes for years due to my knee surgery and excess weight. It really feels great to be able to exercise again and to have so much fun at the same time”
Lynn Lawrence, Texas, U.S.A. 

Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes usage also dramatically increases endurance, which is demonstrated by a scientific study conducted by Dr. J.E. Taunton at the University of British Columbia – Canada. 

"Scientific investigations with regards to impact forces have reported that between 27% and 70% of runners or joggers are injured in the first year after commencement of running". Most of these injuries are impact-related. This is why impact protection is so important.


Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes, with their patented Impact Protection System, reduce the impact stress by up to 80%, as confirmed by three (3) distinct scientific studies. On the chart below (taken from a study conducted by Jason Vance and John A. Mercer at the University of Nevada - USA) you can see a comparison: individuals using normal footwear during exercise versus individuals using Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes


  
Stop abusing your joints! Kangoo Jumps rebound  shoes are also being used for marathons. Jodie Luther is a professional trainer who has run many marathons. She clearly feels the difference when using Kangoo Jumps shoes: no pain, no excessive exhaustion the following day.
  "One of the biggest challenges of long distance competitive running is the huge amount of time it takes to properly prepare and the risk of injuries associated with overstraining. Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes are the greatest tool I have found for a truly safe, time saving and enjoyable workout."

Forget Crazy Diets! While we stress the importance of eating a balanced diet, we are actually more concerned with adding a pleasurable, non strenuous exercise element to your life, with Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes.

  University studies show clearly that you spend much more energy, or calories, using Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes, compared to usual sport shoes. However, this alone does not explain the dramatic weight loss stated by people who have been using Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes regularly.

  The secret lies in the lymphatic system. The lymph is the liquid which circulates in-between our cells, to carry the wastes and toxins, out of our body, keeping it healthy.

  Most of us are unaware that our bodies contain four times as much lymph fluid as blood. However our lymphatic system, which is also our immune system, does not have a pump, like the heart, to keep its liquid in motion. It depends on our natural movements for circulation! If we don't move enough, excess levels of toxin actually clutters our lymphatic system and "poisons" our cells. In some places, the lymph fluid actually crystallizes into cellulite, which many of us know is hard to eliminate.

 
  
Using Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes for only a few minutes every day helps to develop that balance between food consumption and exercise. So forget crazy diets 
Rebound exercise has been found to be the most effective way to "re-prime the pump" and keep it going, due to the up & down swinging in a low impact environment, like with Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes.

  The lymphatic system also monitors our metabolism.

  As we get older, we seem to put on more weight, which becomes harder and harder to lose.

  Studies have shown that our base metabolic rate, which is the rate that our bodies burn calories, decreases as our lymphatic system becomes less efficient.

  As we regularly use Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes, our base metabolic rate will become increasingly more efficient, resulting in noticeable improvements in our muscle tone, and weight management. In fact, we are actually re-training each cell to perform as it did when we were younger. Once we have re-set our metabolism, we will burn more calories at a higher rate, and will not regain weight, if we continue using Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes.

  Your daily gentle workout will be most enjoyable listening to music. You can learn Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes basic steps and much more from our video "Home Fitness & Weight Loss". 
Introduction 

Rebounder, Reboundology and Reboundologist are terminologies established by Albert Carter, Head of the American Institute of Reboundology.

WHAT IS REBOUND EXERCISE? Here is the definition as given by Al Carter:
“The common denominator of all exercises is opposition to the gravitational pull of the earth. Even before birth, the human body grows strong enough to be able to resist the ever present downward pull of Mother Earth. A child learns to crawl, walk, run, play and even throw balls by constantly competing with gravity.

  Formal exercise methods are no different. To exercise the body, one will carry out various movements designed around gravity, utilizing everything from ones own body parts to fulcrums, levers, pulleys, inclined planes and even dead weights to challenge major muscle groups.

  With Rebound Exercise, you also oppose gravity, but you also utilize two other natural dynamic forces found within our environment. Two forces which, for the most part, have been overlooked by other exercise methods. These forces are acceleration and deceleration. When your body stops its downward movement at the bottom of the bounce, the force of deceleration and gravity come into play. When the body begins its upward motion, acceleration is added to the other two forces. The physical human body doesn’t recognize these three different forces but simply accept the combination of the three forces as an increase of the gravitational pull of the earth. Logically, we know that increasing gravity is impossible, but the cells of the body don’t. Because all of the cells of the body have the capability to adjust to their environment, all of the cells of your body begin to adjust by becoming individually and collectively stronger.

  Old fashioned exercise programs teach how you can strengthen the muscles of the body. Rebounding is an advanced exercise in that it is a cellular exercise. All cells of the body will become stronger. This includes all muscles, bones, skin, all connective tissues, all vital organs, muscles of digestion and elimination. Even the cells of the eyes are strengthened by rebounding.” 

Reboundology 

Is based on the combined forces of gravity, acceleration and deceleration. The gravity is the force which attracts us to the ground. The unit of measure of this force is called G. 1 G corresponds to our weight here on Earth, when we stand still. When we accelerate the G force increases. When we decelerate the G decreases.

  N.A.S.A has confirmed the ability of the human body to adjust to the change of gravity. When astronauts were sent to space for fourteen days, they lost 15% of their bone and muscle mass. Space rats lost 40% of their mass in only 7 days! Their problem has been how to re-condition the astronauts the most efficient way?

  Well, Albert Einstein had already stated in 1911 that our body cells could not make the difference between gravity, acceleration and deceleration.

By combining the G force with the acceleration and deceleration while jumping repeatedly, we are subjecting our body to an oscillation between G (at the top of the jump) and 2-4 G (at the impact). Each of our body cell is put under stress and is being told to adapt to a higher gravity. Thus cells are getting stronger with rebound exercise.

  N.A.S.A’s scientist borrowed lymphocytes from astronauts and subjected them to a 3 G force in a laboratory centrifuge during 3 days. In that short time the cell membranes became 50% stronger than normal. 

The Healthy Cell Concept 

This is probably the most significant discovery made by Al Carter. Here’s the concept, in his own words:

“Each of us begins life in a single cell. After fertilization, the cell divides and transforms itself into two identical cells. Each cell carries the identical DNA programming with which it was endowed at the instant of conception. This incredible process of multiplication by division continues until at last the adult human is made up of a mass of 75 trillion highly intelligent cells. Each individual cell knows its business and performs its function in concert with all other cells. The Healthy Cell Concept precisely identify the basic needs of the cell to be healthy. The Healthy Cell concept includes, Cell Food, Cell Environment, Cell Exercise, and Cell Communication.

For the incredible number of benefits inherent in Rebound Exercise I recommend securing your own copy of The New Miracles of Rebound Exercise. Suffice is to say that Rebound Exercise is a very important part of the Healthy Cell Concept. Only Rebounding fits the parameters of the perfect Cell Exercise.

  The synergistic effect of the four vitally important parts of the Healthy Cell Concept on the human body is so phenomenal that health miracles are expected.”

Let’s take a more visual approach:
  Let us consider a balloon filled with water. A human cell is just like this balloon.

  Now watch what happens to this balloon / cell as you rebound using KJ’s.

  Due to this same principle, KJ’s actually allow you to train all your muscles at the same time and increase bone density.

  So really, this eliminates your need for elaborate or bulky fitness equipment which offers only one use

  You must remember that the formula for physical strength of connective tissue, even at the
  cell level, is:

Stress x Repetition = STRENGTH
Train Smarter
Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes  enhance your training routine in several ways:

Reducing the impacts by upto 80%, they provide efficient protection to your ankles, knees, shins, hips, lower back and spine.

Doctor Testimonial 

I wanted to share with you a brief testimony of my results using Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes. Prior to using the Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes, I had been an avid trail runner for many years. I had experienced significant pain in my lower back (L4-L5) region, and an MRI confirmed that I had a degenerative, herniated disc, which was pressing on my sciatic nerve causing a condition known as Sciatica. Since my condition was degenerative, there was no prognosis for recovery. In addition, I had to discontinue all running, as I had incurred injuries to my right knee and hip which were exaggerated by my running. I discontinued running for a period of 2 years, at which point I discovered your wonderful product. I must admit that I was skeptical upon first seeing the Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes, but was desperate to find a way to resume running. It has been 4 months since I have purchased the Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes, and I cannot offer enough praise for this product. 

  Not only have I been able to resume running, but I have done so completely pain-free! I can only contribute my rehabilitation to the Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes, as they have strengthened the muscles, joints, and ligaments in the areas where I had experienced injuries. I run approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours daily on the Kangoo jumps rebound shoes at an aerobic pace of 150-160 BPM. I run on pavement, trails, and professional track and the Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes are always up to the challenge. I have never enjoyed exercise this much in my life, where I actually seek every opportunity I can to use the Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes. I have recommended them to my patients, and they have been pleased with the results as well. I will continue to be an avid supporter of Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes, and offer cheers to the Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes team for the creation of this wonderful product as well as their ongoing commitment.

Limit the risk of aggravating or damaging joints.
Doctors & physical therapists have recommended the use of Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes for the safe rehabilitation of sports injuries.



Physiotherapists and medical doctors recommend the use of Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes for patients as an important rehabilitation factor, as well as, the strength and conditioning aspects of Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes. The reduction of up to 80% of impact shock to your ankles, shins, knees, hips, lower back, and spine also allows athletes to resume their workouts and training much sooner. Too often, rehabilitation time compromises muscle control, proprioception, and balance. 

Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes help protect against reinjury of problems areas... or after joint or back surgery.

There are many different classifications of injuries and the related causal factors of each injury. Using Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes helps you limit the risk of aggravating or damaging joints that have been weakened by overuse or reconstructive surgery. Reducing Impact allows these areas to strengthen while your general health improves. 


For injuries caused by sedentary conditions, Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes are also an excellent rehabilitation factor, as it improves the patient's cardiovascular system, musculature and skeletal systems. At the same time it helps motivate both the athletes, or athletically inclined individuals, as well as, the individuals who lead a more sedentary life style.


"I hadn't been able to run for years because of injuries that never seemed to completely heal. Even casual jogging would aggravate my condition. Running and aerobic exercises using Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes has been a blessing. I'm in better shape than I have been in years."

  "So much fun... they'll forget it's exercise"  


When children use Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes they improve their coordination, balance, spatial awareness, learning faculty, rhythm & timing, self esteem and body image.
Kids love to bounce; they jump on the bed, on the couch, on trampolines, and they love the sensation of being "air-borne". In fact, the urge to jump is quite natural. Because jumping is so much fun, most children don't realize how beneficial it is to their health... so please don't tell them that it's really exercise!

Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes are very safe and easy to use. Overweight children finally have a perfect exercise option that burns calories, tones all muscles, increases their agility and self esteem, while they are playing!

Californian schools and para-scholar organizations like Boys & Girls clubs (USA) started using Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes in 2001, to fight the plague of overweight and physically inactive children. But Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes provide even far more health benefits to children.
  


In his book "Jumping for Health" Dr. Morton Walker writes how rebounding helps correcting learning disabilities, improves vision, coordination, concentration, spatial awareness, rhythm, posture. Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes are currently being tested successfully in Denmark with autistic children.


"Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes were introduced to Steve & Kate's Camp, LLC in 1998 and since then have become a significant component of the camp program. Unlike the safety concern we have about scooters and rollers blades, we feel completely comfortable in expanding our use of Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes. Our experience has been that everybody loves them, even though, while having great fun, they are getting a strong dose of balance and coordination development"
