Sportspower Trampoline being recalled for repair - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - Around 23,400 trampolines that were sold exclusively at the Sports Authority are being recalled for repair. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall of the trampolines that were manufactured by Sportspower Ltd., of Hong Kong. To remedy the problem, the company is offering a free repair kit.

The recall was announced after one incident; one of a legs on the trampoline separated from the frame while being used. The problem caused a leg to puncture through the jumping area. The company is not aware of any injuries related to this recall.

The concern is that other trampolines that the company manufactured might have the metal leg move out of position. This can cause the jumping area to be punctured and could lead to a person using the trampoline being seriously injured with penetrating wounds, cuts, and bruises.

(Best Syndication News) - Exercising in the water has just as much aerobic benefit as working-out on land, suggests a new study. The researchers found pedaling an exercise bike in a swimming pool had a similar aerobic effect to a typical stationary bike workout. The study was presented today at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress.

The immersible ergocycle, which is a stationary exercise bike that can be put in a swimming pool, was studied. Many people might assume that moving in water is not as difficult as moving on land. The researchers compared land and water bicycling workouts for effectiveness.

Healthy participants perform exercise tests in the water and on land. The water level was up to their chest level. The intensity of the workout was increased every minute until the riders were exhausted. The researchers found that the land-workout was almost the same when they compared the maximal oxygen consumption rates.
