The kybun mat is an elastic springy mat like no other. Its reactive rebound-effect allows the foot to sink in deep and springs straight back to its original position. The kybun mat encourages the body into constant, minute movements to maintain balance and posture. The rebound-effect causes the muscles to tense and relax simultaneously, exercising the muscles in your feet, legs and trunk. The kybun mat improves your balance, coordination and all-round fitness without taking up any extra time at all.

The kybun mat with rubber coating has a thickness of 2 cm and is ideal if your everyday work requires you to spend long periods of time standing on hard surfaces – if you stand at a bank counter or a sales counter, or if you wear safety shoes and stand at a workbench. The elastic springy kybun mat Plus relieves the strain on your whole body, protects your joints and prevents leg fatigue. Thanks to its special coating, it is water repellent and easy to clean. This means it can be used when wearing shoes. Nevertheless, it should not be exposed to permanently wet conditions, aggressive fluids or (hot) swarf.

But I like standing on these kybun mats; they're comfortable.
I can’t imagine giving a concert on the kybun mat. You have to of course imagine when you hold the violin up here, the movements that you make result in a certain discomfort. Either for the intonation in your left hand because you only have to shift your finger a tiny bit for it to not be so precise anymore. And also with the slurs during a staccato piece, it naturally creates a certain degree of discomfort. This is at the expense of how precisely you play. But I actually find it a good exercise for practising, because it forces me to improve and then I play better in the concert too.
