Chronic polyarthritis

Chronic polyarthritis is one of the most common chronic inflammatory autoimmune diseases. If left untreated, it can destroy the joints and lead to severe disabilities.

kybun products gently mobilise your joints when walking and standing, particularly the foot, knee and hip joints and the back. This way, you can integrate preventative training into your daily routine and counteract wear and tear on the joints in the long term.


Polyarthritis refers to inflammation in five or more joints.

The symptoms of patients with chronic polyarthritis may develop gradually at first. Intermittent joint pain dominates at night and causes sleep loss in the early hours of the morning. This leads to swelling of the joints with redness and overheating and, in particular, stiffness in the morning, which is an important factor for rheumatologists when it comes to distinguishing ‘simple’ arthrotic joint pain from inflammatory arthritic joint pain. This joint pain eventually affects many joints (polyarthritis!). This usually happens in a symmetrical expression on the left and right sides of the body, and hands and finger joints are all affected.

The kybun principle of operation – be proactive

The kybun mat and kybun shoe are ideal for bringing more movement into everyday life and escaping the downward spiral of arthritis – all without spending any additional time. Acute pain is alleviated and, thanks to the more gentle loads on the joints, walking longer distances is possible once again.

The soft, elastic foam material acts as a ‘crumple zone’, greatly dampening the impact on joints when running and walking.

Movement becomes more comfortable again and joint pain is reduced, usually after just a few minutes. Those who like to exercise frequently find it much easier to shed extra pounds, which in turn reduces strain on the joints. Nearly all customers affected by osteoarthritis report a reduction in pain since they started wearing the kybun shoe.

Gentle, regular movement of the affected joints is the main factor that determines successful therapy, which means the kybun shoe/kybun mat can be a big help. After all, people who are in pain avoid moving, thereby making the joints even stiffer and more painful. This is a vicious circle, a downward spiral.
As described above, kybun products relieve the joints, thereby allowing you to move gently and with less pain. You can quickly feel relief when walking if your feet are affected by polyarthritis.

Opinions/customer testimonials

I have been a polyarthritis and soft tissue rheumatism patient for many years and have had quite a few attempts with orthopedically converted shoes and insoles that never quite fit properly, despite repeated modifications. Walking for any length of time caused me severe pain. As a dog owner and passionate hiker, I depend on being able to walk effectively. A colleague of mine first introduced me to the kybun shoe. Since then, I have been enjoying my dog walking without pain. At one point, I had to go back to orthopaedic shoes because I also had a hallux and a hammertoe. Very quickly I started to experience pain in the affected foot, knee issues and lower back problems. I immediately switched back to the kybun shoe and now I can walk pain-free again. Longer hikes are also possible and that includes walking downhill!
