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.

Ich merke, dass ich mich extra anders bewege. Ein bisschen weicher und besser. Ich bin Hausfrau, ich gehe zwar nicht joggen, aber das Feuchtwischen ist meine Therapie und das ist mein Joggen eigentlich. Dabei gehe ich viel in die Knie und da finde ich, dass der kybun Schuh viel bringt. Da hilft der Schuh sehr viel mit. Er ist fast wie ein etwas grösserer Turnschuh.

Es gibt ja Leute, die tragen den Schuh vorallem aus gesundheitlichen Gründen. Aber ich bin ja gesund, ich bin fit. Aber ich merke schon, dass es für meine Haltungsmuskulatur gut ist und in meinem Alter schaut man, dass man fit bleibt. Aber in erster Linie laufe ich mit diesem Schuh, weil er einfach angenehm ist.

Eugen Jud, Drogist aus der Schweiz

Ich trage den kybun Schuh den ganzen Tag. Sobald ich einen normalen Schuh trage, denke ich der Boden ist steinhart. Weil ich den ganzen Tag stehe beim Arbeiten, habe ich am Abend keine Schmerzen in den Füssen oder Beinen und bin nicht müde.
