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.

Dora Huguenin, Museumsführerin in Le Locle, Schweiz

Also für mich ist das super, weil wir verschiedene Abende haben. Also es kann sein der Abend von den Freunden vom Museum oder die Nacht vom Museum. Dann ist man so bis um zwölf Uhr nachts auf den Beinen, hat aber schon den Arbeitstag hinter sich. Für mich ist das super, weil ich absolut keine Beschwerden habe mit den Füssen oder den Knien. Und wenn ich manchmal meine jüngeren Kollegen sehe, wie sie totmüde  sind - ich als Älteste hier im Museum - dann ist es jeweils schön zu sagen: "Ich habe wirklich kein Problem! Und mir geht es gut."

Man spürt, dass man anders geht. Dass der Körper anders reagiert und es einfach angenehm ist, im kybun Schuh zu gehen.

Die Wandergruppe ist teilweise um mich und meine Frau gestanden und haben den Schuh bewundert, vor allem weil die Sohle sich so gut dem Untergrund angepasst hat und wie gut, dass wir gelaufen sind. Sie konnten es kaum glauben, dass ich im Januar eine Knieoperation hatte.
