Im kyBoot kann der ehemalige Goalgetter nach seiner schweren Verletzung wieder schmerzfrei gehen.
Alex Tachie-Mensah war ein gefeierter Fussballstar. Der 39-Jährige spielte für den FC St. Gallen und das ghanaische Nationalteam. 2007 verletzt er sich bei einem Match schwer. Sieben Operationen folgen in den nächsten drei Jahren. Täglich hat er Schmerzen und hinkt sehr stark. Die Lebensqualität des ehemaligen Spitzenfussballers ist stark eingeschränkt.
Mit dem kyBoot kann er nun wieder schmerzfrei laufen und sogar Fussball spielen. Seit August 2009 trainiert er die Thurgauer Fussball Jugend. Für den sympathischen Fussballer ist sein neues Leben ohne Schmerzen wie ein Lottogewinn.
Since the beginning of January 2015 I (77 years old) couldn't walk more than 50 meters because of numbness and pain in both legs. I was diagnosed "Central Stenosis" of lumbar spine. I was told by several doctors that I will need to have spinal operation. My wife Stavroula (72 years old) had a similar problem 1 year ago. She couldn’t walk more than 30 meters because of left leg pain. She was diagnosed with “Lateral Stenosis”. She overcame her problem after intense physical therapy, acupuncture, exercise and progressive walking with kyBoot after her physiotherapist recommended it. After all her treatment she was walking 2 km without rest, thus she suggested me to try first the same approach. After 4 months of therapy I could walk close to 1 km. I hesitated to buy kyBoot even I liked a lot, as I tried them for one day. My wife tried to persuade me to buy them because as she said they are not ordinary shoes but they are a valuable equipment. I hesitated because of the cost which was almost my half pension. Now two months after wearing these wonderful shoes I feel very satisfied for my decision to buy them. I walk with my wife every day for 75 minutes with a fast pace. We compete with each other about who is going to finish first. Our goal is to walk 10 km a day with kyBoot in a couple years, when we are going to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.
The workload in the medical profession is high, and we are constantly on our feet. That is why I decided to wear the kyBoot Swiss air-cushion shoe to work. It relieves my joints and enables me to spend more time on my feet without making me feel tired or uncomfortable. Thanks to the special soles, it feels like I am walking on air!
