Yes! Not only is using a bellicon safe for those dealing with osteoporosis and osteopenia, it can actually help to increase and maintain bone density.
Bouncing on a bellicon produces gravitational forces two to three times greater than normal, providing the weight-bearing forces your bones need to build up and stay strong. Rebounding, especially on the bellicon’s highly-elastic bungee bands, is an ideal way to help keep these issues from progressing.
Also, because rebounding on the bellicon is a very low-impact form of exercise, you can get this beneficial weight-bearing exercise without straining joints or cartilage.
When choosing your bungee strength, make sure to select a bungee that is more firm than your optimal strength. This will help provide the force necessary to help in the fight against osteoporosis.
