Page 553 - Paragraph 3

I honestly think that if you are going to have

gym equipment in your household then you
should have a designated room just for
working out. This designated room could
have a key and you could lock it every time
you are not using the room so that nosy
children do not go in and try to act like
Mommy or Daddy and workout and get hurt.
It is the adults responsibility to make sure that
the exercise equipment is placed in a place
where children will not get hurt, or at least
somewhere where it will reduce the risk of
children getting an injury.

The placement of exercise equipment in the

home can put children at risk for injury.

Page 555 - Paragraph 1

Among these cases, stationary bicycles
(32.3%) and treadmills (30.9%) accounted
for most injuries.

Page 555 - Paragraph 1

Approximately 36.3% of cases involving
treadmills had an injury to the finger/hand.

Stationary bikes and treadmills are the go to

exercise equipment for beginners and for
runners/bikers. These are good for warming
up or cooling down. I start with a stationary
bicycle when I first go to the gym and finish
on a treadmill. ~30% is a lot of injuries for
equipment that should be the most well known
and most used gym equipment. I would have
assumed them to be lower due to the high
number of users.
I dont get this statistic. A treadmill is for
running which has to do with your feet. I
guess it does make sense though due to the
experiment and the people the study was done
on (children). Children get so curious and
have to touch everything so that is most likely
the reason for this percentage being where it
is. The child sees something moving very fast
that it almost looks as if it isnt moving so you
touch it and then figure out that it hurts
because it is moving at a fast pace.

Page 556 - Paragraph 2
Patients in the 10- to 18-year-old age group
were more likely to have a home exercise
equipment-related injury that resulted in a
sprain/strain than younger patients.

I would have assumed this statistic myself

because older children are more informed
when it come to exercise equipment and,
therefore, would have a less serious injury
such as a sprain. Sprains/strains are more
common than any other injury for simply just
working out for older children unless that
child plays a sport then the injuries because
more serious as you get older.

Page 556 - Paragraph 2

54.1% of stationary bicycle users were

admitted to the hospital for an injury is
Stationary bicycles accounted for 54.1% of absolutely crazy to me. That user must have
admissions to the hospital, followed by jump been doing a very hard core workout to have
to be admitted to the hospital. I joke now, but
ropes (19.6%) and treadmills (18.0%).
watch as the next time I use a stationary
bicycle Ill get a sprained ankle or something.
Treadmills is only 18.0% which makes me feel
a little better about getting on a treadmill. This
percentage makes sense because it is very low
unlike the stationary bike percentage.
Page 557 - Paragraph 3

I don't think I could think of any better way to

prevent an injury to happen than to get
Children 10 to 18 Education and training educated and become trained for each piece of
on the proper use of exercise equipment is an equipment you intend to use. I do not truly
appropriate injury prevention strategy for this know why so many younger children would
use exercise equipment unless it is related to a
age group, because these children use
exercise equipment for its intended purpose medical purpose, but older children use it for
its intended purpose in most all cases so it
more than younger children.
makes sense for these children to be trained
now that way when they get older they will
reduce the risk of getting more injuries.

Page 557 - Paragraph 5
Home exercise equipment is generally
designed for use by adults and, therefore,
may present an injury hazard to children
because child safety was not adequately

When designing an exercise equipment the

first thing that comes to mind is not is it child
safe, it is something along the lines of will it
strengthen or/and improve ones health and
fitness. Due to this whoever is using the
equipment should be aware of their
surroundings and make sure that if children
are present they know to stay back. That is the
job of the equipment user not the equipment
