Long and intensive working days are common in the healthcare sector. Doctors and nurses spend the entire day on their feet, putting enormous strain on their bodies. Tired legs, back pain and vein problems are the most common medical issues among people in this sector. But it doesn’t have to be this way!
KyBoot shoes are perfectly suited to the work that people do in hospitals and doctors’ surgeries. The walk-on-air sole provides optimal shock absorption and noticeably reduces the stress on the body. The shoes are also easy to clean and disinfect. The non-slip soles provide a secure grip and prevent accidents in the workplace. What’s more, the foot climate system ensures optimal moisture and temperature regulation.
«kyBoot shoes enable active, healthy movement on hard surfaces. The soft, flexible sole is gentle on joints, strengthens your muscles and improves balance,»explains Prof. Dr Christian Gäbler, a consultant in trauma surgery and sport traumatology in Vienna, Austria.
Dr Konrad Birrer, consultant certified by the Swiss Medical Association in Lucerne, Switzerland, is impressed with how effective the shoe is: «kyBoot shoes are an effective tool for proprioceptive training. You can wear them at all times and they are very comfortable. I was able to relieve the strain on my Achilles tendon just by wearing kyBoot shoes. I didn’t need any specific therapy, as the flexible sole strengthened the stabilising muscles in my ankles and relieved the overstrained muscles. I would advise wearing kyBoot shoes after any injuries to the lower extremities and I’d recommend them for jobs where you’re required to stand all day, for athletes and for the elderly, as they can prevent falls.»
Alongside malnutrition and smoking, lack of exercise is one of the main causes of lifestyle diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and coronary heart diseases. Doctors recommend the kyBounder to patients as the soft springy mat allows them to do a moderate amount of movement while completing everyday activities. Medical professionals use the kyBounder as a therapy or preventative measure for back pain, venous diseases and foot problems, among others things.
Many doctors have set up a kybun waiting room where patients can try out the kyBounder. The kyBounder allows patients to remain active while waiting and find out about the kybun movement concept.
Dynamically standing on a soft, springy kyBounder mat has the following advantages:
- Enables more movement during your everyday routine
- Releases tension
- Strengthens foot muscles
- Keeps joints constantly moving without straining them
- Stretches contracted muscles
- Balances out relieving postures and straightens posture

When I started working at the laundry, I always got backache when doing the ironing. I went to the back pain advice centre, where they let me try out the kyBoot. I was even allowed to try out the shoes at home and at work. My back trouble vanished immediately. That was the key point for me: otherwise, I would have had to look for a new job. In the end, I chose these sandals.
"Proprioception (our sense of our body's movements and relative position) and proprioceptive training are very important to avoid injury. The kyBoot is an effective tool for such training sessions; it can be worn the whole time and is very comfortable. It means that you are involved in a kind of constant training session without having to make a lot of effort. In the end I was able to try out the effect myself. Without any specific therapy, just from wearing the kyBoot, I was able to cure my Achilles tendonitis: the unstable sole strengthened the muscles stabilising my ankle joints, taking the burden off the rest of my overstressed muscles. I recommend the kyBoot following injuries to the lower extremities, for jobs in standing positions, for sportspeople and for the elderly, to prevent falls."
