kybun Opinions

Barbara Bürgin, Head of the crèche Purzelhuus, Switzerland

When they play with the mats, they put them on top of one another or put blocks underneath them. They’ve also taken balls from the ball pit, put those underneath the mats and then sped along the floor. They’ll always be creative if they’re permitted a chance.

Hansruedi Baumann, sport pedagogue from Switzerland

We at ‘Mut tut gut!’ are trying to give parents, guardians and teachers tips on how they can create stimulating learning environments so that children can move freely, intensively and have fun at the same time. The soft, elastic mats from kybun also count as stimulating and diverse materials. They encourage children to roll, do somersaults, and bounce just like on a small trampoline. Of course, they are also great for jumping on. The children also use them for building, as somewhere to sit when looking at books or as somewhere to get better. This means the mats are almost a guarantee that the children will learn how to do a somersault – something that is no longer a given these days.

Leandra Kissling from Switzerland

It was great to try something new, since I often have back pain when I sit for a long time, and my eyes begin to close when I am particularly tired. You are constantly in motion when you are standing on the mat, which makes you feel active and keeps you more awake. It leaves a tingling sensation afterwards – I feel like I’ve just received a foot massage. I think it’s great.

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.

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.

Sometimes you can concentrate better, sometimes even better. It changes all the time.

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.

What I’ve noticed from this is that I can concentrate better.

Gopal RajGuru, Nyon, Switzerland

In my work as a sales trainer, I stand pretty much every day for 8-10 hours. A few years ago, this created a real problem – tremendous pain in my feet. It started with incredibly sharp pain from the first step out of bed in the morning, and built strongly throughout the day, to the point I could barely focus on my work by lunchtime. My doctor told me it was a common ailment that affects people who stand or walk a lot, called plantar fasciitis. For years, I tried everything – softer shoes, inserts to reduce heel shock, sitting during my presentations, even acupuncture, but nothing worked. I spent thousands on these so-called “cures” without any relief. Then one day while walking (painfully) down the street in Oakville, Canada I came across a little sign that advertised “new Swiss shoes that promised tremendous walking comfort”. Inside the pharmacy, a very nice woman introduced me to the kyBoot. Wow, the pain in my heels was already less after just a couple of hours in the kyBoot. After returning to Switzerland, I bought a pair immediately and started wearing them in my day-to-day work. After 2 weeks, I noticed something amazing… I no longer felt my feet during the day. They were just there, comfortable, and happy. No pain, even after I took off my shoes in the evening. No pain in the morning when getting out of bed. I simply could not believe it. The pain in my feet is simply gone – it’s changed my life. Pain is no longer the focus of my every waking (or walking) minute and I can stand all day in my workshops in total comfort. I am thankful for this amazing invention. These are the most terrific shoes and they really have changed my life!

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

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.
