The kybun mat is a soft, supple, springy mat. Its reactive crumple zone allows the foot to sink in deep and springs straight back to its original position. The kybun mat encourages the body into constant, minute movements to maintain balance and posture. The rebound effect causes the muscles to tense and relax reciprocally, exercising the muscles in your feet, legs and trunk. The kyBounder improves your balance, coordination and all-round fitness without taking up any extra time at all.

kybun mat plus: Stand comfortably on a soft surface while wearing shoes or safety shoes (steel toe shoes)
The kybun mat plus has a thickness of 2 cm and is ideal if your everyday work requires you to spend long periods of time standing on hard surfaces – if you stand at a bank counter or a sales counter, or if you wear safety shoes and stand at a workbench. The elastic springy kybun mat plus relieves the strain on your whole body, protects your joints and prevents leg fatigue. Thanks to its special coating, it is water repellent and easy to clean.

It was an experiment and we had no scientific proof that it would work. We were surprised to discover that it could improve neurological movement disorders, including MS and Parkinson’s disease. Of course, we also have patients with paralysis caused by a stroke, for example. We let them walk on the soft, springy kyBounder. We saw a clinical improvement in the situation. For example, this means that all of a sudden, patients with Parkinson’s disease require less medication or even none at all. They also no longer experience tremors. We’ve also noticed an improvement in MS patients, but we have definitely seen the greatest improvement in patients with Parkinson’s disease. However, mobility has also improved for patients with paralysis. It is actually a mystery to us how these improvements came about. We just don’t know. We can only assume that the stimulation caused by spatial awareness and in the lower extremities stimulates brain tissue. Certain interactions that were disconnected are suddenly open again. This is typical in Parkinson’s disease. We are continuing our research in this area in order to be able to confirm this with other patients with Parkinson’s disease. We were very surprised that it has an effect and of course, we’re delighted that it’s possible to help these patients.
At first, with the mat and the shoes, I felt dizzy; you wobble about a bit. And now I notice that I'm making an effort to walk upright.
