Many people who work in offices suffer from tension, muscular imbalance and back pain. Passive sitting can cause these physical ailments. Working on a kybun mat at a standing desk, for example, is the ergonomic alternative for the workplace. The flexible surface strengthens small muscles, releases tension and positively influences your well-being.
Studies show that moderate exercise increases performance and improves concentration when combined with mental activity. The kybun mat makes you more alert and creative, while ensuring you still have plenty of energy left in the evening.
Integrate a standing table and a kybun mat into your daily work routine and discover the joy of movement. It’s good exercise and good for your body.
A total of 40 bank employees at St. Galler Kantonalbank and some 100 employees at Helsana health insurance tested a standing desk in combination with a kybun mat as part of two pilot projects. Participants in both of the studies confirmed the positive effects of the kybun mat on their physical well-being and posture. The employees really enjoyed working on the kybun mat.
A representative study proves that although breaks are a fixed part of the daily routine at work, they are rarely used to increase productivity and motivation.
A total of 75 per cent of employees surveyed stated that their companies did not provide quiet rooms or organise active break activities such as relaxation exercises and movement programmes.
The elastic, springy kybun mat provides active movement and relaxation at the same time. This allows you to recharge your batteries during breaks and return to your desk bursting full of energy.
Standing room only! A height-adjustable conference table together with a kybun mat helps makes the office ergonomic. Studies show that moderate exercise helps to noticeably improve posture, concentration and memory.
The small muscles throughout the entire muscle corset are used to maintain balance on the elastic, springy kybun mat.
Meetings are far more dynamic and focused as you have to think on your feet. Participants are more awake and actively take part in the discussion.
An increasing number of employers are discovering the benefits of the kybun philosophy for the workplace.
The following companies use kybun products:
At first it's an unusual feeling. The sales assistant said it felt like you were walking barefoot or on moss. It feels quite close to what it did in the old days, as I grew up the son of a farmer, and we used to run around a lot barefoot. It's nice and soft, and you feel good in them. I could wear the shoes all day without any problem.
You really float in these shoes. Now, in the evening, you naturally feel tired, and I think this benefit is something that everyone has felt when putting on these shoes in the evening compared to the old shoes they had been wearing during the day.
These do come at a price. They’re definitely pretty high-end in terms of cost. But that’s nothing compared to what I had to spend on my health insurance and so on because of my old health problems. I’m happy to pay for these shoes, and I’d recommend them, too. They’re really great.
