Dear Petro
People declaring medical conditions which may be adversely affected by the jump are not permitted to jump. The medical conditions include, but are not limited to:

* Pregnancy
* High Blood Pressure
* Heart conditions
* Neurological disorders
* Epilepsy
* Acute or chronic knee or back disorders.

Any person with handicaps or medical conditions wishing to jump needs to provide a medical certificate approving the jump signed within the previous thirty (30) days and a copy of this certificate must be handed in on the BRIDGE when registering for the jump.
