kybun products for a more active and dynamic workplace

The revolutionary kybun movement concept is a simple way to improve workplace ergonomics.

Exercising while standing upright on the springy elastic kybun mat is the healthy alternative to sitting passively. The springy elastic structure of the mat subtly keeps the foot and leg muscles in constant activity in order to maintain balance and posture. What’s more, combining the kybun mat with a standing desk is an important part of health management. A comfortable workplace increases motivation and employee satisfaction and reduces sick leave absences.

kybun shoes are particularly well-suited for workers who spend long hours standing or are constantly on the go. This newcomer to the world of shoes features unique walk-on-air soles. The soft air cushion supports joints and releases tension in the back and neck. kybun shoes provide comfortable shock absorption and are incredibly comfortable, even after hours of wear.

Benefits and effect:

  • Relaxes and loosens the muscles
  • Improves posture
  • Can act as an effective measure against back pain
  • Decreases fatigue
  • Work more efficiently thanks to the combination of both a physical and mental workout
  • Increases creativity and learning ability
  • Improves general fitness without taking up any extra time
  • Is fun

I think everyone should wear this type of shoe. It’s because I have to stand a lot at work. We’re here for eight to nine hours every day and most people wear shoes that they don’t like anymore or trainers with closed toes. I don’t know how to describe what it feels like to wear these shoes. It’s difficult to explain; it’s like being on a cloud.

I was employed at the post office. I spent almost 50 years working for the post office. I was on the go all the time, and my feet suffered from it. I had to have a foot operation, and from there on out it got worse and worse. Thanks to the kyBoot, I can now walk again without pain.

I bought my first pair of kyBoot shoes last autumn, as I was still struggling with the consequences of the accident I had in the summer of 2013. The torn muscle fibres in my right calf were very persistent. I underwent six months of physiotherapy and had an ultrasound (showing a 15 cm haematoma between fibres), X-rays and an MRI. After that, I had another round of physio with shockwave therapy. I also received acupuncture treatments and intense massages. Things seemed to be getting better in the short term, but the breakthrough result appeared to be just out of reach. I had severe pain in my right foot every time I stood up, and this mystified my doctors. Why am I experiencing pain in my foot when it was my calf muscles that were damaged? I decided to try out kyBoot shoes in October 2014. The staff members in the shop were friendly and provided very good advice, and I left with a pair of shoes. I’ve been wearing the shoes all day since then, when I’m on the go as well as at the office. I’ve even gone on a few gentle hiking wearing them. Despite the pain and against the advice of my GP, I have continued to take part in my favourite sport – partner dance (mostly disco swing and jive or in other words, the types of dance that involve a lot of movement). Alongside that I’ve been doing weekly strength training and stretching exercises, among other things. My GP organised an appointment for me in the Etzel clinic in the autumn and called in a sports doctor especially to handle my case. I got an appointment for 22 January 2015. However, my pain was gradually decreasing, and when it came to the time of the appointment, I had no pain at all. My GP still advised me to go to the appointment. The doctors at the clinic were amazed. They took X-rays and asked a lot of questions. How is it possible? They could no longer see any symptoms. The two specialists could only agree on the fact that the X-rays no longer showed any abnormalities. One of them thought that a minor insole could counteract the mild inward bend of my foot (why?). The sports medicine specialist believed I had done everything correctly. STAY MOBILE! He praised the work I had put in and my choice of physiotherapy methods (shockwave therapy and acupuncture). He emphasized how he believed that the constant mobilisation relieved the pain in my foot. This is all thanks to my kyBoot shoes. He advised me to continue doing what I have been doing – wearing kyBoot shows, taking part in sport, and dancing. He was firmly against the insoles! The pain was the result of the relieving posture I had been using from the time of my accident, which I continued to use for a long time after the accident. Continuously freely moving my foot allowed me to get out from the pattern I was stuck in almost unnoticed. Well, all I can say is: Thank you so much.
