The unique floating feeling
The kyBounder is a soft, supple, springy mat. Its reactive crumple zone allows the foot to sink in deep and springs straight back to its original position. The kyBounder encourages the body into constant, minute movements to maintain balance and posture. The rebound effect causes the muscles to tense and relax reciprocally, exercising the muscles in your feet, legs and trunk. The kyBounder improves your balance, coordination and all-round fitness without taking up any extra time at all.

Amateur and professional sportspeople also use the soft, springy mat to exercise and regenerate.

kyBounder plus: Stand comfortably on a soft surface while wearing shoes or safety shoes (steel toe shoes)
The kyBounder plus 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 soft, springy kyBounder 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.

Basic principle: the thicker the mat, the more intense the training effect of standing on the kybounder.
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.
Sometimes you can concentrate better, sometimes even better. It changes all the time.
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.
