What distinguishes the kybun mat from a traditional therapy mat?

The kybun mat compresses a great deal when loaded and then relaxes immediately and completely, almost like a spring, when the load is reduced. This generates the maximum elasticity required to activate all the deep muscle layers in those standing on it. This effect is achieved primarily due to the kybun mat’s open-celled, breathable polyurethane pore structure.
Traditional therapy mats do not compress completely when loaded. Their structures harden when loaded, and the lack of elasticity creates a swimming, ‘wobbly’ effect. The springy effect is not achieved because the PVC pore structure, which is usually filled with air, regenerates only slowly when the load is reduced.
