SmartSportsUSA, LLC is a sports safety device company, providing innovative solutions for trampoline safety. Our focus is to bring improved safety to sports through innovative devices and advanced technology.
When SmartSportsUSA’s founder, Darsh Shah, learned of the high number of trampoline injuries, he decided there had to be a way to use technology to improve trampoline safety and avoid injuries, thus giving “birth” to SmartSportsUSA.
Today, his patented trampoline safety monitoring and alert device is affordable and easy to use.
