  • Patent number: 10806958
    Abstract: A trampoline includes a jumping mat, a supporting frame, and a plurality of levers. The supporting frame is located proximal a jumping periphery of the jumping mat. The plurality of levers circumextend the jumping periphery. Each of the plurality of levers includes a rigid element connected to the supporting frame. The rigid element includes a jump mat end and a frame end. The rigid element pivots about a fulcrum connected to and supported by the supporting frame. The jump mat end is connected to the jumping mat at a jumping mat connection located proximal the jumping periphery. A tensioner is connected between the lever at a tensioner attachment and the supporting frame. Each lever and tensioner is configured to apply tension to the jumping mat in the form of a force applied against the jumping periphery of the jumping mat in a direction away from the jumping mat.
