What does the specialist for orthopaedics and trauma surgery have to say about the kybun concept?

I had chronic inflammation in my Achilles tendon, and I spent a long time in physiotherapy. When I got better again, I wore the kybun shoe a lot and it really helped.

What are your symptoms and how can kyBoot help you? My Achilles tendons have been inflamed for six to seven months. I was in physiotherapy and tried a number of things. Nothing worked. I have been wearing kyBoot shoes for one month and I have the feeling that things have improved. The pain is less severe and the swelling has gone down. It’s better now. How did you find out about the consultation day? I came to the shop around four weeks ago because of my Achilles tendinitis. I had already heard about it and it had been recommended to me. Then someone spoke to me about it in the shop and I thought it was a good idea. How does it feel to wear kyBoot shoes? They feel soft, like walking on air. They automatically stretch the tendons. If you walk over rocks in the forest, they cushion your steps. They are very comfortable.

I had a serious Achilles tendon operation more than a year and a half ago, and they also had to operate on the muscle. Afterwards I didn’t have any feeling in the ankle joint and I was unable to roll the foot over properly. So I needed a shoe that handles the rollover function. The MBT does that, which is why I had the MBT in the first place. The advantage of the kybun shoe is that it not only helps me with the rollover function, but it’s very soft as well. This helped me tremendously in dealing with everyday life.

I’m a marathon runner and very thankful for kybun shoes. I often had pain in my Achilles tendon after running. The pain has completely vanished since I started wearing kybun shoes. Thank God for inventors and the people that support them.

"kyBoot help you keep balance and activate your muscles, from your toes to your back: they are helpful in the treatment of pain in the heels and forefeet, and are a method of choice to support the treatment of pain in the Achilles tendon and back."

"Proprioception (our sense of our body's movements and relative position) and proprioceptive training are very important to avoid injury. The kybun shoe 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 kybun shoe, 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 kybun shoe following injuries to the lower extremities, for jobs in standing positions, for sportspeople and for the elderly, to prevent falls."

Two or three years ago I went into a chemist's as I was in very severe pain with rheumatism. They recommended kybun shoe to me, partly as I had extreme pain in my Achilles heel. I was allowed to try out the kybun shoe at home and was delighted. The pain had gone. That's why I then bought the shoes. I was overjoyed with them.
