Kangoo Jumps were originally developed for joggers, to reduce the impact stress on joints.
Whether you are an avid jogger, a serious runner or a casual health-conscious exerciser, you will quickly appreciate the incredible number of benefits that Kangoo Jumps provide. Reducing impact shocks to your ankles, knees, shins, hips, lower back, and spine, by up to 80% is only one of them.
A Swiss chiropodist study shows that Kangoo Jumps correct pronation and supination conditions originating from the lower leg, while they are being used.
Stress reduction and correcting pronation and supination are two of the many reasons doctors recommend Kangoo Jumps, for rehabilitation after surgery & for prevention of injuries. These benefits help explain why, so many people who at one point could no longer jog or exercise canjog / exercise again in comfort, with confidence and without pain.
“I hadn't been able to jog or attend aerobic classes for years due to myknee surgery and excess weight. It really feels great to be able to exercise again and to have so much fun at the same time”
Lynn Lawrence, Texas, U.S.A.
Kangoo Jumps usage also dramatically increases endurance, which is demonstrated by a scientific study conducted by Dr. J.E. Taunton at the University of British Columbia – Canada.
"Scientific investigations with regards to impact forces have reported that between 27% and 70% of runners or joggers are injured in the first year after commencement of running". Most of these injuries are impact-related. This is why impact protection is so important.
