kyBoot shoes provide foundational training for tennis players
Tennis players reap greater physical benefits the more often they wear kyBoot shoes in their everyday lives, which in turn benefits them later during training sessions.
kyBoot as a preventive measure kyBoot shoes strengthen the stabilising muscles in the joints, especially in the ankles and knees. The unstable, soft, elastic kyBoot sole promotes balance and coordination. This in turn minimises your risk of stumbling on your feet since it helps you keep your ankles much more stable. This even helps during tennis matches when you are not wearing the kyBoot shoes.
kyBoot shoes for older tennis players and/or players recovering from an injury
Older tennis players who experience pain when playing or who have even given up tennis because of pain can comfortably play a leisurely game of tennis in the kyBoot and experience significantly less pain.
Don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at Hansruedi Widmer’s story (video on the right).
After an injury, it is particularly important that the duration for which the kyBoot is worn is increased slowly. People who have spent more time training their muscles with kyBoot shoes can wear them for longer periods at a time and perform more difficult exercises in them (e.g., for coordination or physiotherapy).
kyBoot shoes for muscle recovery
Wearing kyBoot shoes after a match is a good way for tennis players to allow their muscles some active recovery time. The jolts to the joints are absorbed, and the fatigued musculature can relax. The feet, having been stabilised and stressed in the tennis shoes, can once again move freely and regenerate in the kyBoot.
kyBoot shoes for tennis instructors
kyBoot shoes are excellent for low-impact sports. They relax the back, strengthen the knee joints and help you to recover gradually. They allow tennis instructors to stay healthy and fit over the long term.
I’m always hearing older people saying that they no longer play on hard courts. It’s just too hard and you need to compensate a lot as a result.
The best way to describe them is to imagine what it is like to walk on moss. There is a nice rolling motion, even when playing fast sport, which is very pleasant. At first I wondered if the soft effect would make it difficult to play a fast sport, but that wasn't the case at all.
