What is the difference between the Needak® rebounder and others?
Needak® is a manufacturer of rebounders -- and rebounders are the ONLY thing we manufacture.  
Models available through discount stores or marketing/promotion companies are imported.  We have
control over all aspects of production -- they get the most inexpensive model they can (Generally quality
is not an issue with marketers, only price).
Why is your rebounder "round" instead of some other shape?
The round design is the best because it places even stress force upon all components.  As you
rebound, the same force is applied to the mat, springs, and frame in front of you, behind you, and on
either side of you.
Any design involving a corner (square, octagon, etc.) forces those springs in the corners to absorb
unequal impact and they tend to break more frequently than the springs along the straight sides which
do not flex as much.

Why is your Soft-bounce spring better than other types of springs for rebounding?
Needak® Mfg. innovated the Soft-bounce spring which absorbs as much as 85% of the impact of each
bounce.  This is due to the unique barrel shape of the spring.  The diameter of the coils increases as
you move toward the center of the spring.
There are generally 2 types of springs found on imported rebounders.  The
classic spring found on low-end imported rebounders is a shorter spring
and tends to be very stiff.  A few imports use a spring that looks like our
Soft-Bounce™ spring.

Fact:  Springs will break.  Common sense tells you that if you flex metal, it
will eventually break.  We do not make exaggerated or unfounded claims
about our springs.  It would surprise you how many people come to us for
springs and relate stories of dissatisfaction with marketing companies
who told them things such as, "Our springs never break, that is why we
don't carry them in stock.  You obviously misused your rebounder to cause
breakage." If you get the benefits out of a rebounder, spring replacement is
an inexpensive maintenance item.

How does Needak Rebounders compare with the Asian imports?
Needak® insists on producing the highest quality rebounder.  Our price may be a few dollars more, but
you get a rebounder that will provide many years of service and is more gentle on your body.  If it doesn't
have the Needak label on it, you can be almost 100% certain it is an Asian import.

1)  The Quarter folding rebounder design has several serious flaws which cannot be overcome by fancy engineering or trendy
materials.  In the interest of consumer safety, Needak does not produce a Quarter fold rebounder.

2)  Taken from ReboundAIR® marketing materials July, 2003.  Correspondence by an independent surveyor regarding
clarification of details and specifications of ReboundAIR® rebounders and their programs remains unanswered.

3)  "Fine print" of the ReboundAIR® warranty severely restricts the "marketing hype".
