Don’t sit, float

Many people who work in offices suffer from tension, muscular imbalance and back pain.

Passive sitting can cause these physical ailments. Working on a kyBounder at a standing desk, for example, is the ergonomic alternative for the workplace. The flexible surface strengthens small muscles, releases tension and positively influences your well-being.

Studies show that moderate exercise increases performance and improves concentration when combined with mental activity. The kyBounder makes you more alert and creative, while ensuring you still have plenty of energy left in the evening.

Integrate a standing table and a kyBounder mat into your daily work routine and discover the joy of movement. It’s good exercise and good for your body.

A total of 40 bank employees at St. Galler Kantonalbank and some 100 employees at Helsana health insurance tested a standing desk in combination with a kyBounder mat as part of two pilot projects. Participants in both of the studies confirmed the positive effects of the kyBounder on their physical well-being and posture. The employees really enjoyed working on the kyBounder.

Take a kybun break

A representative study proves that although breaks are a fixed part of the daily routine at work, they are rarely used to increase productivity and motivation.

A total of 75 per cent of employees surveyed stated that their companies did not provide quiet rooms or organise active break activities such as relaxation exercises and movement programmes.

The soft, springy kyBounder mat provides active movement and relaxation at the same time. This allows you to recharge your batteries during breaks and return to your desk bursting full of energy.


From sitting down at meetings to creative thinking on your feet

Standing room only! A height-adjustable conference table together with a kyBounder helps makes the office ergonomic. Studies show that moderate exercise helps to noticeably improve posture, concentration and memory.

The small muscles throughout the entire muscle corset are used to maintain balance on the soft, springy kyBounder mat.

Meetings are far more dynamic and focused as you have to think on your feet. Participants are more awake and actively take part in the discussion.

"Since June 2009 I have been wearing kyBoots whenever possible in my job as a postal worker and all my spare time. I hardly have any back pain any more and my varicose veins are just a bad memory. I am delighted and no longer like to walk in any other shoes."

Of course it would be perfect, and I'd be the No. 1 buyer, if there were kyBoot shoes for donkeys and horses. I have donkeys, too. It would be a huge gap on the market, of course, and would help them.

I have suffered from upper and lower back pain for a long time now. Due to the nature of my work, you could say I’m ‘chained’ to the dental chair for more than eight hours a day. I have to bend over the patients I’m treating, meaning my back muscles are always tense. I came to a turning point at age 60, when a physiatrist friend of mine advised me to wear kyBoot shoes. It was the solution to almost all of my postural problems. Taking a walk in my new kyBoot shoes is worth more to me than a session with an osteopath or an hour of Pilates! Aside from the wonderful feeling of walking on a cloud, my posture instantly rebalances and my back pain slowly disappears. I’m so happy with them that I bought one pair for the hospital where I work, another for my private practice, a sportier pair for spring and a winter pair for rainy days. Now I can’t get along without them. I also wanted to give a pair to my brother, who is an officer in the Carabinieri. He has had several operations for badly herniated vertebral discs. He was also very happy and satisfied with this new approach, after having tried many alternative therapies. But all these words are a waste of time ... you need to try them to understand the comfort, quality and therapeutic properties! You have to try them to believe it! Thank you, Kybun. I will always be grateful to you. I will only buy Kybun shoes!
