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.

As a teacher, I stand and walk around a lot. But in kyBoots, you can believe me that I now enjoy that part of my work again.  Watch the video

I find it very pleasant to stand up and shake out your arms and legs instead of sitting for long periods.

I feel like I am standing with a more upright posture. This is because you’re constantly moving.
