Doctors and nurses spend the entire day on their feet, putting enormous strain on their bodies. Tired legs, back pain and vein problems are the most common medical issues among people in this sector. But it doesn’t have to be this way!
kybun shoes are perfectly suited to the work that people do in hospitals and doctors’ surgeries. The walk-on-air sole provides optimal shock absorption and noticeably reduces the stress on the body. The shoes are also easy to clean and disinfect. The non-slip soles provide a secure grip and prevent accidents in the workplace. What’s more, the foot climate system ensures optimal moisture and temperature regulation.
«kybun shoes enable active, healthy movement on hard surfaces. The soft, flexible sole is gentle on joints, strengthens your muscles and improves balance,»explains Prof. Dr Christian Gäbler, a consultant in trauma surgery and sport traumatology in Vienna, Austria.
Dr Konrad Birrer, consultant certified by the Swiss Medical Association in Lucerne, Switzerland, is impressed with how effective the shoe is: «kybun shoes are an effective tool for proprioceptive training. You can wear them at all times and they are very comfortable. I was able to relieve the strain on my Achilles tendon just by wearing kybun shoes. I didn’t need any specific therapy, as the flexible sole strengthened the stabilising muscles in my ankles and relieved the overstrained muscles. I would advise wearing kybun shoes after any injuries to the lower extremities and I’d recommend them for jobs where you’re required to stand all day, for athletes and for the elderly, as they can prevent falls.»
Alongside malnutrition and smoking, lack of exercise is one of the main causes of lifestyle diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and coronary heart diseases. Doctors recommend the kyBounder to patients as the soft springy mat allows them to do a moderate amount of movement while completing everyday activities. Medical professionals use the kyBounder as a therapy or preventative measure for back pain, venous diseases and foot problems, among others things.
Many doctors have set up a kybun waiting room where patients can try out the kybun mat. The kybun mat allows patients to remain active while waiting and find out about the kybun movement concept.
Dynamically standing on the elastic springy kybun mat has the following advantages:

My own background is in research so I am always willing to try out new things. I have seen how helpful the shoes can be. I was particularly impressed when my wife told me that she couldn’t imagine going without these shoes. She says she now needs to go and change all of her other shoes. She is absolutely delighted. The shoes will particularly help pregnant women who were already suffering from pain. But they can also help people who have pain in the musculoskeletal system or neurological problems and I think pregnant women can definitely benefit from wearing them. Women can benefit from wearing kyBoot shoes, whether it is during the pregnancy itself or afterwards in the nursing period where joints are still more elastic and need more care.
I used to have a pair of MBT shoes, but it was too complicated for me. The first pair weren't even rounded underneath and it was very hard work. Then I had the shoes foam-injected, but it was really tricky walking in them. I've still got those shoes; they're like new, but of course I'm no longer interested in them. I'd rather order a pair of kyBoot shoes as they're easier to walk in.

"kyBoot help you keep balance and activate your muscles, from your toes to your back: they are helpful in the treatment of pain in the heels and forefeet, and are a method of choice to support the treatment of pain in the Achilles tendon and back."
