The Rebound Therapy Team Comprises:

Eddy Anderson

Eddy Anderson

Founder of Rebound Therapy and senior consultant.

Eddy is recognised as the founder, or as he is affectionately known, “The Godfather” of Rebound Therapy.

Eddy has been a paratrooper, a specialist exercise therapist in the RAF, a remedial gymnast, a physiotherapist and a qualified teacher before becoming the headmaster of Springwell Special Needs school where he developed the techniques for using the trampoline for therapeutic exercise for children with special needs.

Now retired from teaching, Eddy continues his work in Rebound Therapy by running training courses at the request of schools, NHS groups, adult groups and charity agencies. He has written several papers on Rebound Therapy, some of which are reproduced on this site in the "Papers and Publications" section. Other papers from a wide range of professionals experienced in Rebound Therapy are available on request as recommended supporting papers to those who have completed a staff training course. Please feel free to contribute your own views, papers, dissertations etc. for others to share.

Eddy is also the inventor of Sensafloat which is a unique special needs swimming support and floatation aid. It is used to facilitate relaxation and movement in water for people with profound and multiple impairments. The product was developed in the early 1990s and in 1993 Eddy won the Toshiba / CBI Invention of the Year award for the design.
