Don’t sit, float

Many people who work in offices suffer from tension, muscular imbalance and back pain.

Passive sitting can cause these physical ailments. Working on a kyBounder 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 kyBounder makes you more alert and creative, while ensuring you still have plenty of energy left in the evening.

Integrate a standing table and a kyBounder 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 kyBounder mat as part of two pilot projects. Participants in both of the studies confirmed the positive effects of the kyBounder on their physical well-being and posture. The employees really enjoyed working on the kyBounder.

Take a kybun break

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 soft, springy kyBounder 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.


From sitting down at meetings to creative thinking on your feet

Standing room only! A height-adjustable conference table together with a kyBounder 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 soft, springy kyBounder 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.

Michele, you recently started wearing new shoes, kyBoot shoes in fact. What kinds of problems had you previously been having with your feet? I was almost completely unable to walk. I was in severe pain, but I must say it’s been a dream since I started wearing these kyBoot shoes. I can move around normally again and even jump up and down. Of course, you have to get used to them. What kind of a problem did you have?Splayfeet. How long have you been wearing the shoes? I’ve been wearing them for a good three months. I have to say, they are really superb. Are you pain-free now? Yes, I don’t have any pain during the day. When I walk around barefoot in the evenings, my problems come back to haunt me.

Good work shoes cost between 150–180 francs, too. And if you pay another 100 francs on top but then have less trouble and don't have to take any more painkillers, then it's worth it, I'd say. Looking to the future, it's a good investmen

After the concerts, my feet hurt a lot less, because I'm on a soft surface, not standing in hard shoes.
