BONE DENSITY - HELP TO FIGHT OSTEOPOROSIS
Rebounding in Kangoo Jumps stimulates osteoblastic
bone rebuilding activity in the vertebral bodies and weight-bearing
osseous structures of the pelvis and lower extremities. This is
essential in the prevention of osteoporosis, especially in women.
Kangoo Jumps provide individuals with a cutting edge comprehensive
conditioning and rehabilitation system that is safe and effective.
Within only 2 weeks of stay in outer space,
astronauts lose as much as 15% of their bone and muscle mass, as a
result of the absence of gravity. Consequently, N.A.S.A. had to
investigate how to reverse the process. Finally their studies came to
the conclusion that "rebound exercise is the most effective and
efficient form of exercise ever devised by man"
