Standing in lessons increases concentration

Sitting dominates our lives from a young age.

The best way to change set structures and behaviour patterns is by incorporating movement and energy into everyday life at school.

The kyBounder simulates a soft, flexible surface. Even simply swaying on the kyBounder activates a range of different muscles. Studies show that moderately moving while learning makes learning easier and increases intelligence. In contrast, sitting still and concentrating result in significantly poorer results. What’s more, kybun prevents incorrect posture and relieves school-related stress.

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!

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.

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