Standing in lessons increases concentration

Sitting dominates our lives from a young age. The best way to change set structures and behaviour patterns is by incorporating movement and energy into everyday life at school.

The kyBounder simulates a soft, flexible surface. Even simply swaying on the kyBounder activates a range of different muscles. Studies show that moderately moving while learning makes learning easier and increases intelligence. In contrast, sitting still and concentrating result in significantly poorer results. What’s more, kybun prevents incorrect posture and relieves school-related stress.

All my life I have been looking for shoes, these shoes I met by chance after 20 years of searching for comfortable shoes. When I tried the shoes for the first time I had an acute problem in my right foot, a painful spur that caused me to limp. The moment I put my foot in the shoe I had stopped limping. Since then I do not take them off, I only wear them. These shoes have changed my life and improved its quality. They enable me to walk or stand 12 hours a day. I have no pain. All my orthopedic problems are still there but they do not bother me anymore.

I wear the kyBoot shoes all day. The floor suddenly feels extremely hard whenever I switch to wearing regular shoes. I don’t feel any pain in my feet or legs or feel tired when I come home in the evening since I am standing all day at work.

The kyBoot is of greatbenefit to me. First of all, it helped with my knee problem, and then it helped with my heel spurs. That was the key thing. But my knees even hurt less, too,and it stimulates your circulation.
