Previous studies confirm the existence of a beneficial component of mechanical vibration and oscillation during trampoline exercises. Researchers have been interested in the possibility of using these exercises in the process of strengthening pelvic floor muscles and in cases of stress urinary incontinence. This study aimed to evaluate changes in pelvic floor muscle tone after 8 weeks of systematic ‘jumping fitness’ training and performing a follow-up observation of the maintenance of this effect after 9 months.

Case report
This study involved a young woman without symptoms of stress urinary incontinence who began practicing ‘jumping fitness’ 3 times a week for 2 months. After the end of the training cycle, there was an increase in the bioelectrical activity of the pelvic floor muscles in all muscle groups tested, both during the contraction and relaxation phases. However, 9 months after the end of training, pelvic floor muscle activity decreased in some measurements.

In the case of the patient studied, the proposed form of recreation may constitute a type of prophylactic training to prevent pelvic floor muscle weakness. However, the long-term effect of such training on the condition of the pelvic floor should be assessed.
