What is Rebound Therapy? Rebound Therapy is a trampoline based therapeutic exercise and movement program developed in the UK by Eddy Anderson in 1972. The program is ideal for people with a range of special needs as it promotes balance, change in muscle tone, relaxation and sensory integration, and improves fitness and communication through movement and interaction on a trampoline.

Initially the Rebound Therapy program in SA will focus upon providing therapy for participants with a disability. However, the program will also aim to  engage participants with injuries, those with health issues including obesity, the elderly and other disengaged groups who may benefit.  Rebound Therapy in Australia will be delivered as an integrated program within gymnastics, wherever possible, and  can  be  utilised as a  base level for all participants.
