Rules to play Bungee Jumping
1. Bungee jumping
Bungee jumping is an activity that involves jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord. The tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building, bridge or crane; but it is also possible to jump from a movable object, such as a hot air balloon or helicopter, that has the ability to hover above the ground. The thrill comes from the free falling and the rebound.When the person jumps, the cord stretches and the jumper flies upwards again as the cord recoils, and continues to oscillate up and down until all the kinetic energy is dissipated.
2. Physical Evaluation
Above all, individuals planning to bungee jump should meet the following criteria to limit health and other risks
Weight for height within the target range note accurate measurements are recommended for proper fitting of equipment, including weight bearing cords and body harnesses if used Absence or adequate control of medical conditions considered prohibitive; for the following or related conditions, it is crucial to seek professional counsel with a physician or nurse practitioner
Abnormal blood pressure
Abnormal heart rate or rhythm
Back or leg disorders
Breathing disorders
Circulatory disorders
Head injuries
Possible pregnancy bungee jumping during pregnancy is highly discouraged
Recent surgery
3. Equipment
While the equipment involved in bungee jumping is quite basic, the importance of its proper use and working condition cannot be overstated.
Ankle harnesses securing the bungee to the body
Many people add a body harness as used in rock climbing to increase security
Tie Off
A sturdy and stable structure from which to anchor the bungee cord, i.e. steel railings of a bridge or safety fence
Specific weight bearing knots
Some services particularly those using a continuous location place an airbag, webbing, or similar safety sling at the bottom of the jump space, to provide a safety space in the unlikely event of a fall.
4. Proper Dress
Though there is no universal uniform, some companies employ a dress code to ensure safety. The following are basic recommendations

Casual outdoor clothing that does not interfere with proper harnessing Absence of flying fabric or objects including jewellery and unsecured glasses or even contact lenses that could cause injury or obstruct vision

5. Weather
Many companies call off jumping during unfavourable weather, due to inherent dangers of poor visibility and uncontrollable wind patterns raising the risk of injury.
Rain, snow, residual wetness, and ice cause slippery conditions that may impair reliable operation of the equipment.
