The kybun mat is an elastic springy mat like no other. Its reactive rebound-effect 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 simultaneously, exercising the muscles in your feet, legs and trunk. The kybun mat 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. This means it can be used when wearing shoes. Nevertheless, it should not be exposed to permanently wet conditions, aggressive fluids or (hot) swarf.

We were searching for a solution that would get the children at our school moving. They sit down for most of our classes, so we thought that we should change something in the classrooms. We discovered these desks by chance, in a short newspaper article. We had already included them in our pool of potential ideas, so we did some more research. That’s when we discovered the Swiss company that sells these desks here in Germany. The desks feature a gas pressure spring, which allows the height to be adjusted for each child. Height differences between students are sometimes as big as 60 cm, and these desks can be adjusted accordingly.
We use similar products at the sports hall to encourage muscle stability. But I have to say, we haven’t had anything like this before. Either they were too wobbly or they didn’t make any real difference. I think this mat could really be a good surface for us to try out at our sports hall.
