Mrs and Mr Mpalastos from Mantoudi Evoias, Greece

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 kybun shoe 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 kybun shoe 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 kybun shoe in a couple years, when we are going to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.

I experienced severe pain and swelling in my foot during the summer. It was so bad that I could no longer walk. It was just a few days before my holiday, so I was really in a bind. I quickly put a cooling gel pack in my kybun sandals. After three days, I was so much better that I was able to walk short distances without any pain. My holiday wasn’t a disaster, and it’s all thanks to my kybun shoes. I was able to go everywhere I wanted and experienced virtually no pain. What’s more, I’ve noticed that after wearing kybun shoes for a couple of months, my gait is now much more stable and my leg muscles are much stronger. I’m so grateful for these wonderful shoes. I highly recommend them.

"Proprioception (our sense of our body's movements and relative position) and proprioceptive training are very important to avoid injury. The kybun shoe is an effective tool for such training sessions; it can be worn the whole time and is very comfortable. It means that you are involved in a kind of constant training session without having to make a lot of effort. In the end I was able to try out the effect myself. Without any specific therapy, just from wearing the kybun shoe, I was able to cure my Achilles tendonitis: the unstable sole strengthened the muscles stabilising my ankle joints, taking the burden off the rest of my overstressed muscles. I recommend the kybun shoe following injuries to the lower extremities, for jobs in standing positions, for sportspeople and for the elderly, to prevent falls."
