The growing popularity of trampolines in Korea has resulted in a significant increase in the number of injuries associated with their use. However, little research has been conducted into trampoline-related injuries in Asian countries, including Korea and the incidence and characteristics of trampoline-related injuries have rarely been reported. In a review of the very few studies on these injuries in Korea, the mean age at injury was younger than has been reported in previous studies from other countries, and 46% of patients experienced fracture. Most injuries (82%) occurred in commercial facilities. In Korea, the safety management of trampolines is insufficient. Hence, safety guidelines for the use of trampolines should be recommended by relevant medical professionals.
