Question: I have a bellicon and had a total hip replacement a year ago. I have resumed activities such as swimming, pilates, yoga, and spinning. Is it safe to use the bellicon? My surgeon did not know what this was, and I know that I can no longer run outside. I think it is safe, but I wanted to make sure.
Answer: Generally speaking, if you are already doing those activities that you mentioned, using the bellicon should be safe since the impact of rebounding on bones and joints is very low.
A customer who had a full hip replacement a couple years ago. Here's his statement about it:
I had a total hip replacement (on the right) four years ago. Because of bouncing on a bellicon that I started immediately afterwards (5 days later), I never needed a walking aid. I could walk right away. After three months, I did not have a single side-effect. I bounce every day on the bellicon and feel hearty.
(Also, there's a Youtube video with him - unfortunately only in German 😊: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-cdmSrYkr0)
