History, Accreditations and Partnerships

19th Century

It is recorded that a basic trampoline-type piece of apparatus was invented in the 19th century by a French neurologist to provide therapy for brain injured children. He named the apparatus the "Trampolino". ("The Diagnosis and Treatment of Speech and Reading Problems - Carl H. Delacato -1963).

The folding sports trampoline with which everyone is familiar was invented by George Nissen in the 1930s. (Wikipedia)
