Good health starts with the feet

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!

kybun 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.


Long and intensive working days are common in the healthcare sector

«kybun 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: «kybun 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 kybun 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 kybun 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.»

The kybun waiting room – Doctors recommend the kybun mat

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 kybun mat. The kybun mat allows patients to remain active while waiting and find out about the kybun movement concept.

Dynamically standing on the elastic springy kybun 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

As your feet have to move about a lot more, somehow the calluses just go away. I don't have cracked skin any more in the winter. I always had really deep cracks in the heel and my entire foot, really. I don't have that at all any more. I do still have to rub cream in, as they are still quite dry, but it's not as bad as how it used to be.

I can’t think of anything about these shoes that could be improved. If they were taken away from me, I would quit. They are so important. I feel happy every time I put them on and walk in them. They just work, almost of their own accord. I don’t have to exert myself when I walk in them. I don’t have to concentrate to walk five or six kilometres in them. I can walk with complete freedom. The shoes relax my whole body, which enables me to enjoy life! They are a lifeline. As you get older, you start to value this sort of thing.

I tried low-cost shoes for quite some time, but they just didn’t do the job. Having a good pair of shoes is well worth the investment – and I’ve found the best ones available anywhere.
