kybun Opinions

Heidi Frei from Switzerland

It took me at least ten years to regain some sense of normality in my life. I have been back on my feet for the last five years, and now I’d like to be able to walk without feeling any pain. That’s why I ended up trying out the kybun shoe. I will wear this shoe for the rest of my life. Wearing this shoe is a true pleasure.

I think it’s important for people who are in the same situation as I was in three weeks ago to know that there is hope. That not all hope is lost just because it takes effort and discomfort to stand in the kitchen and cook, and perhaps not be able to do anything else afterwards. I really believe that if you have painful feet when you’re walking, moving, or going out it’s at least worth a try. The advice you get here is fantastic. I only know the shop in Rüti because it’s near to where I live. They made a huge effort to advise me, to make recommendations, and to help me, and they wouldn’t let me leave until I was 100% sure that I had the right shoe.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that these shoes have probably added a few more years to my life. Although my disease is very rare, I suspect there are a lot of people who have similar difficulties. People who can’t walk or leave the house, who have gout and so on, could benefit a lot from these shoes. It’s like walking on a cloud, and if just standing in the kitchen causes you pain the shoes’ effects are absolutely sensational.

I bought the shoe three weeks ago. At the time I was still walking around the neighbourhood on crutches. Slowly, like an old man. Today I can leave my house, go shopping, and get small jobs done. The freedom you get is like driving a car or riding a motorcycle for the first time. You suddenly have options again.

My mother and my brother, for example, have told me that I have been much more agile when I’m out and about. Maybe I haven’t noticed it myself, but other people have been telling me that I seem a lot more agile when I’m on the go. I’m much fitter throughout the day, because it doesn’t hurt me to wear it and it doesn’t rob me of my energy.

I definitely have more zest for life with these shoes. I feel better in the world.

Heidi Frei from Switzerland

I feel it throughout my entire body. I have been able to significantly reduce the spasticity in my shoulder and in my arm. It’s still a little bit stiff, of course. The spasticity caused my arm to be stuck in a rigid position on my chest. That caused a lot of pain and tension in my body, but I don’t have that anymore. I no longer have to put up with it. I feel a lot more relaxed now; my back doesn’t tense up, and I can even raise my arm. The reason all this has happened is because my muscles are relaxed, and I believe that this is down to wearing the kybun shoe. This shoe has made all this possible.

Michel from Wetzikon, Switzerland

This shoe can’t cure my illness, but the shoes have reduced my pain levels to 25–50 per cent of what they were previously. That means I can leave the house again, I can go to the thermal baths, and I can go swimming.

Josef Lingenhöle, gynaecologist from Switzerland

My own background is in research so I am always willing to try out new things. I have seen how helpful the shoes can be. I was particularly impressed when my wife told me that she couldn’t imagine going without these shoes. She says she now needs to go and change all of her other shoes. She is absolutely delighted. The shoes will particularly help pregnant women who were already suffering from pain. But they can also help people who have pain in the musculoskeletal system or neurological problems and I think pregnant women can definitely benefit from wearing them. Women can benefit from wearing kyBoot shoes, whether it is during the pregnancy itself or afterwards in the nursing period where joints are still more elastic and need more care.

Johann Brülisauer from Switzerland

I feel it does my body good to be constantly moving. There’s no more stiffness, and I’ve the feeling that it is gradually going. I think it’s great that I can stand during the day with these shoes.

Hansruedi Poschung from Thun, Switzerland

I’m almost completely pain-free now. I have better circulation, particularly in my legs. I no longer get cramps in my calves and leg muscles. Like I said earlier, I can walk without any problems.

Johann Brülisauer from Switzerland

My steps are softened. My knees hurt less; there are no shocks and impact. I definitely won’t be giving the shoes away.

kybun shoes facilitate active, healthy movement in everyday life. Whether you are walking or standing, it trains your deep inner muscles, protects your joints and strengthens your muscles. It also relaxes the spine, activates the blood circulation and reduces fatigue.

Dr. Holdener from Switzerland

It was an experiment and we had no scientific proof that it would work. We were surprised to discover that it could improve neurological movement disorders, including MS and Parkinson’s disease. Of course, we also have patients with paralysis caused by a stroke, for example. We let them walk on the soft, springy kyBounder. We saw a clinical improvement in the situation. For example, this means that all of a sudden, patients with Parkinson’s disease require less medication or even none at all. They also no longer experience tremors. We’ve also noticed an improvement in MS patients, but we have definitely seen the greatest improvement in patients with Parkinson’s disease. However, mobility has also improved for patients with paralysis. It is actually a mystery to us how these improvements came about. We just don’t know. We can only assume that the stimulation caused by spatial awareness and in the lower extremities stimulates brain tissue. Certain interactions that were disconnected are suddenly open again. This is typical in Parkinson’s disease. We are continuing our research in this area in order to be able to confirm this with other patients with Parkinson’s disease. We were very surprised that it has an effect and of course, we’re delighted that it’s possible to help these patients.

Thanks to these shoes, I can jump again and leap down the stairs, so to speak, rather than groping my way down.

T. W. kybun shoes during pregnancy, Switzerland

I would highly recommend wearing kybun shoes during pregnancy. For me, it was the perfect shoe to wear during the day to relieve the increased pressure on my feet and other joints and gently strengthen my body at the same time. I often felt physically tired, but my kybun shoes motivated me to keep moving and remain active during my entire pregnancy. Walking is so comfortable that even on days when you’re tired, you still feel like walking for a few kilometres. And you feel very fit afterwards. Another thing I love about kybun shoes is how they activated circulation in my legs. I suffered from circulatory problems and would often suddenly feel a strong, shooting dizziness sensation, particularly in the mornings. That’s why I was so happy to find a shoe that activated my circulation! Wearing the shows, together with surgical stockings, really made me feel a lot better. I never had the back pain that many pregnant women suffer from. I don’t know if I was just lucky or if it was thanks to my daily exercise in my kybun shoes. I’m pregnant now for the second time and enjoying walking in my kybun shoe to relieve the strain on my body and exercise at the same time.

I gained greater strength in my back and in that whole area. And I think it also actually improved my balance, my feeling of being able to keep my balance better. Watch the video

To me, it was like walking on clouds. Nice and soft. But after about a quarter of an hour I started to feel quite dizzy. At first I just did a little exercise at a time. So that it wouldn't be too much for me at first, as it was a challenge in terms of balance, too.

"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."

Prof. Dr. Christian Gäbler, specialist in trauma surgery following accidents and sports injuries, Vienna, Austria

"The kybun shoe means you can walk actively and healthily even on hard surfaces. The soft, unstable sole is kind on your joints, exercises your muscles, improves your balance and stimulates receptors in your feet. From a medical perspective I thus specially recommend the kybun shoe to patients with poor posture or knee problems."

Manuela Fellner, singer and Swiss Grand Prix champion, Switzerland

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