The unique floating feeling
The kyBounder is a soft, supple, springy mat. Its reactive crumple zone allows the foot to sink in deep and springs straight back to its original position. The kyBounder encourages the body into constant, minute movements to maintain balance and posture. The rebound effect causes the muscles to tense and relax reciprocally, exercising the muscles in your feet, legs and trunk. The kyBounder improves your balance, coordination and all-round fitness without taking up any extra time at all.
Benefits and effects

A soft, pleasant feeling when standing in shoes
The 2-cm kyBounder plus is ideal if you have to work for long periods on hard surfaces, e.g. standing at a bank window, a sales counter or a workbench. The soft, supple kyBounder plus takes the strain off your whole body, is kind on your joints and helps combat tired legs. Its special coating makes it water-resistant and easy to clean, so it can be used with shoes.
From passive sitting to active standing
Whether you are doing the ironing or working on the computer, the kyBounder is good fun and makes everyday life more active. Amateur and professional sportspeople also use the soft, springy mat to exercise and regenerate.

kyBounder 2cm – For therapy and rehabilitation (learning to walk again)
kyBounder 4cm – For individuals with equilibrium problems or dizziness, senior citizens, children, and individuals with injuries.
kyBounder 6cm – For general daily use: in training, at home, or at the office.
Basic principle: the thicker the mat, the more intense the training effect of standing on the kybounder.
In the beginning, I tried doing exercises in the morning. Sometimes strengthening exercises, stretching exercises or movement exercises. Then I thought of going jogging because that’s something I used to do a lot. But I was unable to incorporate it into my daily routine. It took up too much time. Then I came across kybun and stood on the kyBounder, stood on a soft surface and went walking in kyBoot shoes. That’s when it became possible to incorporate exercise into my daily routine, above all into my daily routine at work. I no longer need to take painkillers. I wouldn’t start taking them now either. There’s no need. I feel like my back is really healthy, and I don’t have any pain. I can lift things and travel between 40,000 and 45,000 kilometres every year. I know this isn’t good for me. I also need to lift a lot at work, but I don’t have any problems anymore.
I think that the major difference is when I’m standing and practising normally I have a different posture for my neck vertebra. Now when I’m standing on the kyBounder, I feel like my hips are pushed forward more. I move my knees a little bit. The major difference is that now I’m always moving. It’s the kind of movement that you always need to balance out with your feet. I feel like this results in less tension.
It was an experiment and we had no scientific proof that it would work. We were surprised to discover that it could improve neurological movement disorders, including MS and Parkinson’s disease. Of course, we also have patients with paralysis caused by a stroke, for example. We let them walk on the soft, springy kyBounder. We saw a clinical improvement in the situation. For example, this means that all of a sudden, patients with Parkinson’s disease require less medication or even none at all. They also no longer experience tremors. We’ve also noticed an improvement in MS patients, but we have definitely seen the greatest improvement in patients with Parkinson’s disease. However, mobility has also improved for patients with paralysis. It is actually a mystery to us how these improvements came about. We just don’t know. We can only assume that the stimulation caused by spatial awareness and in the lower extremities stimulates brain tissue. Certain interactions that were disconnected are suddenly open again. This is typical in Parkinson’s disease. We are continuing our research in this area in order to be able to confirm this with other patients with Parkinson’s disease. We were very surprised that it has an effect and of course, we’re delighted that it’s possible to help these patients.
