Some parents tend to buy bigger-sized roller blades for their kids, anticipating the rapid growth of the kid's feet. This may not be a good idea, according to the article, as a pair of rollerblades that's too large means less control because there will be no ankle support and the child's feet will constantly slide inside the rollerblades.
According to the National Safety Council in the United States, rapid inline skating has swiftly gained popularity these past few years because it is an effective form of exercise that's capable of burning as many calories per minute as cycling or running.
As many as two-thirds of rollerbladers don't wear any kind of protective gear, as determined by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The Council recommends that inline skaters should always wear protective equipment such as helmets, knee and elbow pads, light gloves, and wrist guards.
The Council also pointed out the dangers of skating in the street and advises enthusiasts to be constantly watchful for cars and other vehicles when crossing a street.
Wearing reflective clothing or gear, such as a reflective belt, helps increase visibility to other road users especially in bad weather or in the dark and minimise the danger, according to the Tuvizo article.
"Very often people and drivers do not anticipate your movements, nor that you will move so quickly. Be safe and make sure you have on the correct safety and reflective gear," added Ms. Parkes.
Tuvizo is a newly emerging company specializing in high visibility clothing primarily designed for use in outdoor fitness and leisure pursuits. The company believes safety combined with user friendly design and functionality is paramount.
