About the inventor

Hi, I’m Vern

“Now 94 years old and still shoot my age in golf and plan to climb a mountain when I’m 100.

Retired from Mid-State Technical College after 39 years, twelve teaching and twenty seven as Administrator of Special Projects.  Won the Governor’s Award for Energy Innovation and have invented and marketed several products that include Weed Removal Eq., Hand and Electric Can Crushers, Golf Ball Retriever, Exercise Eq., Gravity Therapy Centrifuge and now the Rebounder Stability System.”

I started with the standard rebounder

and gradually developed back problems due to poor alignment and stability support. I had an MRI done and was told my back was a mess of bulging discs and spinal stenosis. Next I had the recommended 20 Spinal Decompression treatments at a cost of $4,000. This helped to some degree, but did not fully solve my problem.

Then, the Rebounder Stability System was born.

This new system solved my back problems and provided me the alignment, stability, balance and coordination I needed while rebounding. I knew the Stability System solved my back problems, but did not fully understand the spinal anatomy and all its interacting complex parts.

I recently came across a book called SHOULER PAIN?

The Solution & Prevention by Dr. John M. Kirsch, an orthopaedic surgeon with more than 30 years of practice. In his book he advocates dead hanging as a highly effective exercise for shoulder pain and other back pain problems and that doing it regularly could eliminate pain entirely, whether it’s because of an injury or poor posture.

Most of the activities and movements involved in our modern-day lifestyles compress the spine. This includes extended periods of standing, sitting, carrying heavy objects, squatting and even sleeping. Hanging in the dead hang position, even for a few seconds at a time, is effective in decompressing the spine by opening up the space that has been lost between your bones, joints and discs in your back. Dead hangs are awesome for correcting your posture and strengthening the core back muscles while mobilizing your upper body. All of these factors are major contributors to better posture and overall back health.

After reading Dr. Kirsch’s book and all the benefits of the dead hang, or as he states, just hang like a monkey, I got my
E U R E K A Moment

Now I had a better understanding of the spines anatomy and the medical documentation of why my stability system worked so well in solving my back problems and other benefits I received while rebounding with it.

Who Should Do These Exercises?

Everyone should do these exercises; because they correct and maintain a healthy back, shoulders, arms, posture, plus strengthen, decompress, loosen and mobilize your upper body. They can also prevent them from occurring in the first place.

How to perform a dead hang: Google to buy Dr. Kirsch’s book, studies available at : kirschshoulder.com or YouTube
All the benefits regarding the dead hand will occur naturally, when rebounding with the Rebounder Stability System, by pulling and pushing on the side bars. View Video Part I and Part II for a complete overview and directions to use the system.

A Word on Rebounder Bars and Inversion Hanging:

The standard support method for the Rebound Industry is the stability bar, which only provides partial balance while rebounding and none of the numerous benefits of The Rebounder Stability System.

Inversion Therapy or hanging (upside-down) has been utilized for several thousand years with little evidence that it produces any lasting benefit and it’s not safe for everyone. The up side down position could be risky for those with high blood pressure, heart disease or glaucoma. Also many people are not comfortable hanging by their feet with the head down. In theory, inversion therapy provides all the benefits similar to rebounding , but the Rebounder Stability System does all this safely in the vertical position with no health risks.
