kybun Opinions

Michael Knus, pupil from Switzerland

It’s more easy-going because you can relax your back and the mats are very comfortable. It’s comfortable to work this way.

Tobias Sturzenegger, Switzerland

I got a heel spur about six months ago. At first, my mum gave me some soothing creams after the matches, but none of it helped. I put on my mum’s kyBoot shoes just for fun. Then I wore the shoes at a match and it became a lot better.

Tobias Sturzenegger, Switzerland

Haeme Ulrich, speaker and trainer from Switzerland

The kyBoot model that I have is quite eye-catching. It is an athletic shoe. Some young people came up to me recently to tell me that I have a cool pair of shoes. Although they probably had no idea what else the shoe is capable of.

Haeme Ulrich, speaker and trainer from Switzerland

Anja Bissegger, Uttwil Musical Society, Switzerland

I was sceptical at the beginning and thought I didn’t need shoes like these because I’m still young. But despite that, I think they’re great.

Anja Bissegger, Uttwil Musical Society, Switzerland

Florian Bächler, Uttwil Musical Society, Switzerland

Walking is quite hard in normal trainers. With kyBoots, it’s like walking on a soft mat, even with a heavy instrument. They’re incredibly comfortable.

Florian Bächler, Uttwil Musical Society, Switzerland

Tobias Sturzenegger, Switzerland

When you stay standing for a long time, for example, it stops your feet from heating up. It feels really great, like walking on clouds.

Oscar Scarione, Argentinian football player

I always wear the shoe at home or when I’m travelling with the team. I wear the kybun shoe in my leisure time as well. Since I started wearing the shoe, I have far less back pain.

Leeroy Lo, from Singapore

Walking with pain used to be part of my daily lifestyle. I suffered heavily from lower back aches and sore heels, not to mention my feet would constantly feel extremely hot after long hours of standing. It was not until I saw a small advertisement which had three simple words, "Walk-on-air",kybun shoe. After that everything changed. That very night, the internet supplied me all I needed to know about kybun and before I knew it , I was ordering my first pair of kybun shoe. Only I ordered the wrong size! Images of horrific online shopping stories started swirling in my head, as I begun the dreadful customer service phone procedure, only to be greeted by a wonderful lady. She cheerily greeted me, and after I explained my terribly awkward mishap, promptly gave me perfect advise for shoe sizing and settled the ordering purchase immediately. Now I wont lie, I love walking on air. Experiencing the first moments of putting on my kybun shoes felt like relearning how to walk again. This time, pain free. It was enjoyably hysterical when I took my first few steps as my ankles had to read just to the softness of the floor bed. Once I got the hang of it, I noticed immediately that the pain on my lower back was alleviated. It occurred to me that a lot of pressure that was initially borne by my back was now transferred away and that my body was more relaxed during my normal walking form. The heat from my foot soles seemed to develop much more slowly, and generally walking has now become a pain free experience. Thank you kybun for giving me the gift of enjoyable walking, and for being a company that not only is proud of its shoes, but has a service family that sincere, heartfelt and seriously amazing. I cant begin to thank you guys enough!

The kyBounder adapts to your feet very well. The parts that press down harder sink - in deeper; it's really very comfortable.

At 5.15 in the morning I start out with the kybun paddock boots. Then I change into kyBoot office shoes, then at 4.30 p.m. I go back home into the paddock boots.

I really like to go on the treadmill because it’s fun and it’s easier to concentrate on it than when you’re just sitting in your seat.

It's good fun when you can jump about.

But I like standing on these kybun mats; they're comfortable.

They're nice and soft, and comfortable too.

When you're sitting your legs sometimes fall asleep, but that doesn't happen when you stand, and your feet are more comfy.

I was interested in how the mats would feel.

I don't think it's bad; it's cool. And on these mats it's really comfortable.

It's soft and comfy; simply not as hard as the floor.

Oliver Bosshardt, teacher at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

I've got pupils who like using them as they need some more movement. And they jump about for the first five minutes. At first I thought all that jumping about would disturb me, but now I know that after two or three minutes they calm down totally and can concentrate on the lesson peacefully.

Oliver Bosshardt, teacher at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

Stefan Gander headmaster at the SBW School in Switzerland

The students get used to this system within three weeks; after that, it’s as if they had always been learning while standing. Standing on a soft surface makes the interaction between the students and their teachers more gentle and understanding. I’m convinced that this has had a positive impact on the mood here.

Stefan Gander headmaster at the SBW School in Switzerland

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

It makes a change; not just sitting and looking at a book all the time – you can really move about.

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

Nicola Waldvogel, teacher at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

It adds to lessons, as sitting is not good for your back. I think it is a very good thing when the children can stand up and move about. I use them a lot in lessons.

Nicola Waldvogel, teacher at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

It's a nice feeling.

Stefan Gander headmaster at the SBW School in Switzerland

We started off by introducing the kyBounder in classrooms. We noticed how much positive feedback this received from the students and the teachers. That motivated us to expand, step by step.

At first it really does take some getting used to, as it's very wobbly. Because as well as your normal movements, there are effectively added movements. It really supports you and gives you more energy.

Anna Eggenberger, training to be a healthcare assistant, Switzerland

It's really comfortable. Like on a cushion.

Heidi Stäger, Owner Cleaning Company, Gais, Switzerland

At first I often felt tired and my muscles ached. One reason was no doubt that I wore the shoes all day. I'd recommend that older People should start out more slowly. A young person can wear the shoes all day without any trouble. The aching muscles are nothing compared to the pain I used to have.

Heidi Stäger, Owner Cleaning Company, Gais, Switzerland

Priska Hirt, lives in Bubikon, Switzerland

If the horse really pulls, then you have no chance in normal shoes. It's ideal for standing, and no problem going downhill on stony paths. I'm satisfied.

Priska Hirt, lives in Bubikon, Switzerland

Pupil at the SBW School in Switzerland

When I’m standing, I notice that my body moves around quite a bit. You need to constantly adjust your position to stay comfortable. When you’re sitting, you’re always tensed up and you stay in the same position. Sometimes that can distract you from learning.

Pupil at the SBW School in Switzerland

This is more comfortable. I noticed you can loosen up a bit and learn more.

Marco Hanselmann, lives in Appenzell, Switzerland

When you're still young, it's easy to think that you don't need this kind of shoes. ..Maybe later, when I'm older... Now I'm happy that I bought a pair of kyBoot shoes at the trade show. I was able to try the shoes out there first. Now I'm not sorry about the outlay any more.

Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany

I used to fall asleep before school was over and I would wake up again when it became very loud. But now I don’t fall asleep anymore, because I need to stay standing.

Ilka Bruhn, teacher from Germany

My initial experience has been very good. This was intended particularly for children who are very restless. And I find that the children who are standing at the standing desk become very quiet and get on with their work quietly.

Marion Schlauri, pupil Gymnasium Wil, Switzerland

You need to take some time to loosen up a bit in order to avoid getting a cramp, but everything has been going very well so far.

Marion Schlauri, pupil Gymnasium Wil, Switzerland

Dr. Thomas Werlich, general practitioner in Germany

The children are forced to constantly move in order to maintain their balance, which in turn straightens the spine. If they do not make these movements, they fall over. These movements are particularly good for strengthening the back muscles.

Dr. Thomas Werlich, general practitioner in Germany

Günther Franke, rektor at the Neumark School, Germany

The standing desk and mat have been a huge success. The children enjoy going into this room, and they also enjoy learning there. The standing classroom also helps them maintain good posture.

Günther Franke, rektor at the Neumark School, Germany

Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany

Somehow it keeps you moving and this means you don’t become tired so quickly.

Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany

Thomas Wiesner, orthopedist in Switzerland

It can be just as bad for children to be sitting all the time as it is for them to always be standing. Standing on special, soft mats for one to two lessons each day enables the pupils to activate their muscles and improve their health.

Thomas Wiesner, orthopedist in Switzerland

Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany

I prefer to stay standing, since it lets you move your feet better and you don’t have to stay sitting for the entire hour.

Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany

Jerome Oesch, pupil Gymnasium Wil, Switzerland

I can concentrate during lessons much better than I could before. I used to get very tired very quickly.

Jerome Oesch, pupil Gymnasium Wil, Switzerland

Cyrill Mettler, pupil Gymnasium Wil, Switzerland

I feel like I am standing with a more upright posture. This is because you’re constantly moving.

Cyrill Mettler, pupil Gymnasium Wil, Switzerland

Kevin Adam pupil at the Falkschule, Germany

You can work better standing than when you’re sitting. Sometimes, sitting hurts your back. You can also pay much better attention, and work better. It’s also much more relaxing. When you sit, sometimes it can also make you kind of restless, and then you need to move around. Then you can go to the back. The students switch places every 15 minutes. It’s also fun to stand on the mats.

Kevin Adam pupil at the Falkschule, Germany

Nevin Bozdemir pupil at the Falkschule, Germany

I definitely think it’s good, since it’s good for your spine. It makes it easy to concentrate. I’m also an athlete, so I need to move around in general. I practise Taekwondo, and I need to move around in class. I get kind of fidgety in the classroom.

Nevin Bozdemir pupil at the Falkschule, Germany

Helge, pupil from Germany

It’s simply much nicer than sitting, because when you’re sitting, you need to stay like that, but when you’re standing you can move around your feet. That is simply much nicer.

Helge, pupil from Germany

Nevin Bozdemir pupil at the Falkschule, Germany

My grades have definitely improved.

This is certainly a change from sitting for six hours straight.

This is comfortable; it relaxes your back.

Teacher at the Neumark School, Germany

They don’t know where to put their long legs. They don’t know how they should sit and maintain good posture. You can see how they’re slouching. Their shoulders are hunched forward, and they’re thrusting their heads forward. That’s a really bad posture for the spine.

Teacher at the Neumark School, Germany

Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany

I really like it. Sitting the whole time is really annoying, and you rock back and forth.
