Thank you so much for your reply!

I read the info on the following page:

"Warning: Why Using a Cheap, Store-Bought Rebounder Is a Joint-Jarring, Back Breaking Mistake!

Even professional gyms make this crucial mistake…and equip their facilities with low-cost “mini-trampolines” instead of top-notch rebounders. The sporting goods stores sell these “toys” for $30-$100. Simply put… they are not worth the box they come in. And even worse, bouncing on these cheap mini-trampolines (sorry, but I can’t even call them “rebounders”) is likely to cause injuries. As a specialist in conditions related to spinal injuries, I’ve personally tested all kinds of equipment. The cheap equipment causes shock to your back, feet, knees and hips. I couldn’t believe myself at first.

Over 10 years ago, when I first heard about rebounding, I bought a $30 model at our local sporting goods store. I thought it was cool at the beginning. But my wife soon was complaining that it was hurting her back. I didn’t believe it was caused by the trampoline at first, but was soon convinced. Once we bought the proper rebounding equipment, it was truly like “night and day.”

Don’t make the crippling mistake of pinching pennies when it comes to a rebounder. The “el cheapo” brands do not absorb the impact, and are like jumping on concrete compared to the good ones. It is sad how many junky mini trampolines are on the market.

The December 2003 "Readers Digest" reported: "Some mini trampolines cost less than $100, but the surface of these inexpensive models can be unstable and allow too much recoil too quickly which can throw your ankles, knees, and hips out of alignment...”

Thank you again
