kybun brings movement to the workplace

The revolutionary kybun movement concept is a simply way to improve workplace ergonomics. Exercising while standing upright on the soft, springy kyBounder mat is the healthy alternative to sitting passively. The soft, springy structure of the mat subtly keeps the foot and leg muscles in constant activity in order to maintain balance and posture. What’s more, combining the kyBounder with a standing desk is an important part of health management. A comfortable workplace increases motivation and employee satisfaction and reduces sick leave absences.

kyBoot shoes are particularly well-suited for workers who are constantly on the go. This newcomer to the world of shoes features unique walk-on-air soles. The soft air cushion supports joints and releases tension in the back and neck. kyBoot shoes provide comfortable shock absorption and are incredibly comfortable, even after hours of wear.

Benefits and effect:

  • Relaxes and loosens the muscles
  • Improves posture
  • Can act as an effective measure against back pain
  • Decreases fatigue
  • Work more efficiently thanks to the combination of both a physical and mental workout
  • Increases creativity and learning ability
  • Improves general fitness without taking up any extra time
  • Is fun

No other shoe like this! My job requires me to work on my feet all day. Two years ago my metatarsal arch dropped. The pain was unbearable at first but with orthotics I was able to work and have worn them ever since. Now the pain is back and the orthotic is bothering me…my physiotherapist believes my foot muscles have become weak (probably from the orthotic) and indeed, when I'm able to exercise the foot, the pain relief is very apparent. In the meantime I need a soft soled shoe to keep me on my feet. The kyBoots are not only the softest shoes I've ever worn, but they will help strengthen my feet as well! How perfect is that? I have worked my current job for 32 years and am eligible for early retirement in a few more years, but I didn't think I'd be able to make it. I had actually started looking for another line of work, and preparing to give up all the seniority and benefits I currently enjoy (including early retirement!). Now I won't have to do that. I'm so glad I found these shoes, they are amazing, like nothing else I've ever worn! And I just have to add, after wearing the shoes for the last two weeks at work. My feet actually feel better after five days of work, than they do after my two days off without them!
I can't wait until I can afford to buy another pair for wearing around the house, can't live without them now

My muscles ached a bit, especially my shins. That lasted about 5–6 days and then went away. Walking stayed a bit wobbly, but that soon passed to.

Hello, my name is Susanne Bogedaly. I have been suffering from chronic plantar fasciitis in both of my feet as well as a heel spur in my left foot for about a year and a half. I tried just about everything I could, including all conventional therapy methods. The doctors said there was virtually nothing left for them to try. I tried using insoles and sensorimotor insoles, took pain medication and underwent shockwave therapy. In the end, I was under so much psychological strain, and nothing had helped. In my desperation, I decided to try one last thing. I came across the kyBoot on the Internet and tried on a pair. I did some research and opted for this model. I am very impressed. It was my last hope, and it has enabled me to walk comfortably, like I’m walking on air, just the way it was described in the advertisement. It is perfect for me, because I’m a nursery teacher and need to be on my feet every day. I am standing for many hours every day, so I wear the shoes at work and also wear them as slippers at home. I have already place an order for the next model, which is the Arosa model. This is a black lace-up boot that comes up to here. It looks very elegant. I want to encourage everyone who is suffering a similar fate as I was and is in despair to simply try it out! It really is worth it. I am very impressed. I can walk again comfortably and almost without any pain. I will stick with the kyBoot. I am very happy with it. I wish everyone the best and urge them not to give up!
