kyBoot shoes, the kyBounder and the kyTrainer help professional athletes with their everyday training exercises as well as those who play sport as a hobby. It is possible to increase stamina and fitness with minimal effort thanks to the soft, springy surface . The flexible surface gets the body moving. Exercises in kyBoot shoes or on the kyBounder are suitable for both hobby sports enthusiasts and professional athletes. Small movements are intensified, which increases physical and mental well-being after a short period of time. The intense movement of deep muscle groups stimulates circulation. It is an enjoyable combination of endurance, strength and coordination training.
The kybun micro-interval method on the kyTrainer switches between exercise and recovery every 15 seconds. These brief intervals prevent the overacidification of the muscles. This way, lactic acid does not build up while you exercise. Exercise is always followed by a recovery period of the same length of time or even longer. These factors ensure that your body barely tires, even though it is actively doing intensive exercises.
Sports medicine professionals recommend regularly strengthening the deep muscles in order to prepare as well as possible for a competition. Only active, strengthened muscles can provide protection against damage to ligaments, tendons and joints. Usually, only the large muscle groups are exercised regularly and the small, delicate segments are often neglected. This unnecessarily increases the risk of an injury.
Top athletes train hard and often and unfortunately, most of them only train in one way. Depending on the sport, many athletes suffer from long-term, irreparable injuries after their careers. These injuries are often due to extreme, repetitive strain to specific parts of the body.
Fortunately, this is increasingly being prevented and physiotherapists are paying more attention to gentle training methods for handball players, footballers or track and field athletes. Alongside endurance and strength training, it is also important to train and stabilise the deep muscle groups. Using the kyBounder allows you to benefit from gentle intramuscular training, which is the ideal supplement to the further training programme of any top-class sport. kyBoot shoes and the kyBounder help you to actively recover after hard training sessions or competitions.

I bought my first pair of kyBoot shoes last autumn, as I was still struggling with the consequences of the accident I had in the summer of 2013. The torn muscle fibres in my right calf were very persistent. I underwent six months of physiotherapy and had an ultrasound (showing a 15 cm haematoma between fibres), X-rays and an MRI. After that, I had another round of physio with shockwave therapy. I also received acupuncture treatments and intense massages. Things seemed to be getting better in the short term, but the breakthrough result appeared to be just out of reach. I had severe pain in my right foot every time I stood up, and this mystified my doctors. Why am I experiencing pain in my foot when it was my calf muscles that were damaged? I decided to try out kyBoot shoes in October 2014. The staff members in the shop were friendly and provided very good advice, and I left with a pair of shoes. I’ve been wearing the shoes all day since then, when I’m on the go as well as at the office. I’ve even gone on a few gentle hiking wearing them. Despite the pain and against the advice of my GP, I have continued to take part in my favourite sport – partner dance (mostly disco swing and jive or in other words, the types of dance that involve a lot of movement). Alongside that I’ve been doing weekly strength training and stretching exercises, among other things. My GP organised an appointment for me in the Etzel clinic in the autumn and called in a sports doctor especially to handle my case. I got an appointment for 22 January 2015. However, my pain was gradually decreasing, and when it came to the time of the appointment, I had no pain at all. My GP still advised me to go to the appointment. The doctors at the clinic were amazed. They took X-rays and asked a lot of questions. How is it possible? They could no longer see any symptoms. The two specialists could only agree on the fact that the X-rays no longer showed any abnormalities. One of them thought that a minor insole could counteract the mild inward bend of my foot (why?). The sports medicine specialist believed I had done everything correctly. STAY MOBILE! He praised the work I had put in and my choice of physiotherapy methods (shockwave therapy and acupuncture). He emphasized how he believed that the constant mobilisation relieved the pain in my foot. This is all thanks to my kyBoot shoes. He advised me to continue doing what I have been doing – wearing kyBoot shows, taking part in sport, and dancing. He was firmly against the insoles! The pain was the result of the relieving posture I had been using from the time of my accident, which I continued to use for a long time after the accident. Continuously freely moving my foot allowed me to get out from the pattern I was stuck in almost unnoticed. Well, all I can say is: Thank you so much.
We use similar products at the sports hall to encourage muscle stability. But I have to say, we haven’t had anything like this before. Either they were too wobbly or they didn’t make any real difference. I think this mat could really be a good surface for us to try out at our sports hall.
In the beginning, I tried doing exercises in the morning. Sometimes strengthening exercises, stretching exercises or movement exercises. Then I thought of going jogging because that’s something I used to do a lot. But I was unable to incorporate it into my daily routine. It took up too much time. Then I came across kybun and stood on the kyBounder, stood on a soft surface and went walking in kyBoot shoes. That’s when it became possible to incorporate exercise into my daily routine, above all into my daily routine at work. I no longer need to take painkillers. I wouldn’t start taking them now either. There’s no need. I feel like my back is really healthy, and I don’t have any pain. I can lift things and travel between 40,000 and 45,000 kilometres every year. I know this isn’t good for me. I also need to lift a lot at work, but I don’t have any problems anymore.
