Try floating instead of sitting

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

Passive sitting can cause these physical ailments.

Working on a kybun mat 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 kybun mat makes you more alert and creative, while ensuring you still have plenty of energy left in the evening.

Integrate a standing table and a kybun 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 kybun mat as part of two pilot projects. Participants in both of the studies confirmed the positive effects of the kybun mat on their physical well-being and posture. The employees really enjoyed working on the kybun mat.

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 elastic, springy kybun 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 kybun mat 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 elastic, springy kybun 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.

In 1998 I had a serious motorbike accident. Everything was shattered from the knee down. First they wanted to amputate my leg, but then, fortunately, for me, the doctors managed to save it. From then on I was in pain every day. I looked into ways to soothe the pain, and that's how I came across the kybun shoe.

I've known the kyBoot, and before that MBT, for quite a while, as I've known Karl Müller for many years. When I joined the choir, we had to dress up in white, so I went out looking for white shoes and found a pair of moccasins made for medical staff. But after the long concerts I always had hot, sore feet and my back hurt. I remembered the kyBoot and bought myself a white pair. Emanuel Sieber asked me what I needed the shoes for and whether I worked at the hospital. I explained that I needed the shoes for the choir, and that's how we got talking.
