kybun Opinions

Oliver Schmid from Switzerland

I’m always on the lookout for comfortable shoes and that’s how I discovered the kyBoot. I’m a teacher and I have to stand a lot in my job, and I was beginning to feel the effects in my back, knees and feet. Walking in kyBoot shoes is very comfortable and pleasant. It’s like a holiday for my feet!

One great advantage of the treadmill is that I feel more balanced when I go home each day. I’m not as tense. I’ve really gotten to move around; I’ve gotten any need I had to move around completely out of my system, which means that I can really romp around with my kids once I get home.

I find it very pleasant to stand up and shake out your arms and legs instead of sitting for long periods.

We already have a great deal of results that show that students’ performance improves significantly when they continually move on these kinds of mats; this allows them to concentrate on the lesson and regain their focus. That’s very important to us.

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.

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.

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.

As a teacher, I stand and walk around a lot. But in kyBoots, you can believe me that I now enjoy that part of my work again.  Watch the video

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.

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.

We were searching for a solution that would get the children at our school moving. They sit down for most of our classes, so we thought that we should change something in the classrooms. We discovered these desks by chance, in a short newspaper article. We had already included them in our pool of potential ideas, so we did some more research. That’s when we discovered the Swiss company that sells these desks here in Germany. The desks feature a gas pressure spring, which allows the height to be adjusted for each child. Height differences between students are sometimes as big as 60 cm, and these desks can be adjusted accordingly.

Studies to this end have shown that learning while standing also makes students more attentive. What’s great is that we also have a cushion along with each desk:the kyBounder. The kyBounder is soft as a feather, but you don’t sink into it. You stand on the cushion in a very relaxed way. While you stand on it, you need to constantly balance out the wobbliness, so to speak. That means you have to check whether you’re standing upright, which activates a large number of muscle groups. In turn, activating these muscle groups also activates your brain, which actually increases your attentiveness. You’d think it would be the other way around, but standing makes the kids pay much better attention.

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.
