Today at the rehab hospital my physical therapist put me on a trampoline. I used to love jumping around when I was a kid. Since my stroke I am an invalid who has less fun. But today I bounced around. “Jump!” “Keep jumping!” “Jump twice and stop!” Cathartic. Boing! Boing! Boing

    Thanks for reminding me, I’ve wanted to get one for the past year and this triggered ordering one tonight. And since I’m my own doctor and therapist I have an idiot as a patient. I want a fun therapy for once.

    Mine was a little trampoline, maybe 3 feet wide, and my therapist was right behind me.

    only my good leg has a reaction time good enough to do this and it is darn stubborn, so I suspect I would be doing it one-legged. For others though …

    I could not jump and think, which is what they wanted. Took all the fun out of it. I loved that my pt was right behind, because I was concentrating so hard I kept losing balance!

    Man, I feel ripped off! I didn’t get any bouncy bounce therapy. Closest I got was that damn balance board with the half ball on the bottom. 🙂
