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.

Michael Knus, pupil from Switzerland

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!

Oliver Schmid from Switzerland

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

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

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

Pupil at the SBW School in Switzerland

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.

Pupil at the SBW School in Switzerland

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

It's good fun when you can jump about.

You can't fall asleep during lessons.

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.

Stefan Gander headmaster at the SBW School in Switzerland

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.

Stefan Gander headmaster at the SBW School in Switzerland

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

I was interested in how the mats would feel.

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

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

Oliver Bosshardt, teacher at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

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

Oliver Bosshardt, teacher at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

Stefan Gander headmaster at the SBW School in Switzerland

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.

Stefan Gander headmaster at the SBW School in Switzerland

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

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

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

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

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

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.

Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

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.

Stefan Gander headmaster at the SBW School in 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.

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

Felix Meier, teacher, Romanshorn, Switzerland

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

Felix Meier, teacher, Romanshorn, Switzerland

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.

Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany

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.

Ilka Bruhn, teacher from Germany

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

Professor Peter Behrens, orthopedist from Germany

We now need to relearn something that we used to be able to do, that is, how to listen to our legs. You need to relearn what it’s like to feel your muscles again, and I think what we have here is a great opportunity to do so.

Professor Peter Behrens, orthopedist from 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

Gabriele Kastner, headmaster Falkschule, Germany

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.

Gabriele Kastner, headmaster 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

Professor Peter Behrens, orthopedist from Germany

This system enables the children to improve their health without consciously doing anything, which is a crucial factor. A stabilisation effect takes place not only below the feet but also in the gluteal muscles and in the back.

Professor Peter Behrens, orthopedist from Germany

Nevin Bozdemir pupil at the Falkschule, Germany

My grades have definitely improved.

Gabriele Kastner, headmaster Falkschule, Germany

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.

Gabriele Kastner, headmaster Falkschule, Germany

Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany

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

Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany

This is comfortable; it relaxes your back.

Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany

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.
