Indianapolis, IN -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/24/2014 -- One child every 45 minutes lands in the emergency room due to an injury associated with bounce house rentals, yet, according to most experts, the injuries could easily be avoided through safe and proper use of the inflatables. The most common injuries typically involve the upper extremities, such as the elbows, but any part of the body is at risk. Avoiding many of these injuries involves nothing more than following simple safety rules.
"Parents need to limit the use of inflatables to children six years of age or older and an inflatable should only be used when one or more adults trained in the safe use of the inflatable are present. Only one child should be on the inflatable at any time, yet, in situations where multiple children will be using the inflatable, they need to be of approximately the same height, weight, and age," Susan Lorimer, spokesperson for Big Bounce Fun House Rentals, explains.
Weather conditions frequently lead to issues with inflatables, with wind being the biggest factor. Bounce house manufacturers recommend halting use of the bounce house or other inflatable when winds reach 20 miles per hour or higher. Children don't appreciate having to stop the fun, yet adults need to recognize the danger and remove the children. Another option is to deflate the best bounce house rentals from Big Bounce Fun House Rentals Indianapolis IN to prevent injuries if an inflatable does become airborne.
"Anytime there is a question as to whether or not play should be stopped, it needs to stop immediately. It's always better to be safe than sorry in this situation. Although some, if not all, guests may be disappointed, safety always comes first," Lorimer continues.
