Standing in lessons increases concentration

More tasks made easier with kybun

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 kybun mat simulates a soft, flexible surface. Even simply swaying on the kybun mat 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.


Effect and benefits:

  • Increased concentration when learning
  • Increases creativity
  • The combination of moderate exercise and mental activity increases learning capacity
  • Improves posture
  • Improves coordination and body perception
  • Improves well-being
  • Burns calories, even during lessons
  • Is great fun
  • Helps reduce hyperactive behaviour

I can concentrate during lessons much better than I could before. I used to get very tired very quickly.

We were searching for a solution that would get the children at our school moving. They sit down for most of our classes, so we thought that we should change something in the classrooms. We discovered these desks by chance, in a short newspaper article. We had already included them in our pool of potential ideas, so we did some more research. That’s when we discovered the Swiss company that sells these desks here in Germany. The desks feature a gas pressure spring, which allows the height to be adjusted for each child. Height differences between students are sometimes as big as 60 cm, and these desks can be adjusted accordingly.
