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.

We started off by introducing the kyBounder in classrooms. We noticed how much positive feedback this received from the students and the teachers. That motivated us to expand, step by step.

This system enables the children to improve their health without consciously doing anything, which is a crucial factor. A stabilisation effect takes place not only below the feet but also in the gluteal muscles and in the back.

The kyBounder adapts to your feet very well. The parts that press down harder sink - in deeper; it's really very comfortable.
