Try floating instead of sitting

Many people who work in offices suffer from tension, muscular imbalance and back pain. Passive sitting can cause these physical ailments. Working on a kybun mat at a standing desk, for example, is the ergonomic alternative for the workplace. The flexible surface strengthens small muscles, releases tension and positively influences your well-being.

Studies show that moderate exercise increases performance and improves concentration when combined with mental activity. The kybun mat makes you more alert and creative, while ensuring you still have plenty of energy left in the evening.

Integrate a standing table and a kybun mat into your daily work routine and discover the joy of movement. It’s good exercise and good for your body.

A total of 40 bank employees at St. Galler Kantonalbank and some 100 employees at Helsana health insurance tested a standing desk in combination with a kybun mat as part of two pilot projects. Participants in both of the studies confirmed the positive effects of the kybun mat on their physical well-being and posture. The employees really enjoyed working on the kybun mat.

Take a kybun break

A representative study proves that although breaks are a fixed part of the daily routine at work, they are rarely used to increase productivity and motivation.

A total of 75 per cent of employees surveyed stated that their companies did not provide quiet rooms or organise active break activities such as relaxation exercises and movement programmes.

The elastic, springy kybun mat provides active movement and relaxation at the same time. This allows you to recharge your batteries during breaks and return to your desk bursting full of energy.


From sitting down at meetings to creative thinking on your feet

Standing room only! A height-adjustable conference table together with a kybun mat helps makes the office ergonomic. Studies show that moderate exercise helps to noticeably improve posture, concentration and memory.

The small muscles throughout the entire muscle corset are used to maintain balance on the elastic, springy kybun mat.

Meetings are far more dynamic and focused as you have to think on your feet. Participants are more awake and actively take part in the discussion.

I can't recommend kybun shoes highly enough. I am now 76 and have been a long distance walker and country dancer for many years. In that time I have tried so many shoes and my kybun shoes are quite the best. They are so comfortable that I wear them all the time for walking, gardening, zumba dancing and housework.  They are as comfortable as the softest slippers and yet tough enough for a 10mile cross country walk. I also have a physiotherapist friend who is very impressed by the shoes shock absorbing  properties and the supportive fit which makes them ideal for ageing joints.

On October 1993 I did a forced landing near an air field at the northern part of Israel. On take off, and few minutes air born I've noticed a sudden engine cut, did a rapidly  forced landing in a very bad field for landing, plenty of boulders and rocks. In these circumstances you can choose the right place - you take what you find. Fortunately the passenger didn't suffer any damage,but I broke badly my right ankle. It took me one year and a half of crutches and 3 orthopaedic operations to walk again. Until now I couldn't find  suitable shoes though I  tryed all possible firms and styles. I could walk, but always with pain and uncomfortable sensation. Two months ago a friend from Israel,and shoed me his shoes, which was of your production. I tried them and felt good.  I use those shoes for about one month and a half now,and for the first time after the incident I can walk again without lame ,pain or inconvenience and for relatively long courses even up the hill side. So, in short ,I am very happy now with your shoes and will buy some others for the next winter.
