Walking and Standing on the kyBounder Mat


Make everyday life more active with the kyBounder

The kyBounder is a soft, supple, springy mat. Its reactive crumple zone allows the foot to sink in deep and springs straight back to its original position. The kyBounder encourages the body into constant, minute movements to maintain balance and posture.

The rebound effect causes the muscles to tense and relax reciprocally, exercising the muscles in your feet, legs and trunk. Like kyBoot shoes, the kyBounder improves your balance, coordination and all-round fitness without taking up any extra time at all.

Benefits and effects

• exercises your muscles
• relaxes your back
• kind on the joints
• improves posture
• reduces fatigue

kyBounder in Therapy

The kyBounder does not heal any illnesses but can soothe the pain of many ailments or even make them disappear.  Standing and walking on the elastic kyBounder stretches and strengthens deep lying muscles, improves coordination, and supports
the blood flow.

The kyBounder is particularly suitable for rehabilitation and therapy. The soft surface animates the body to permanent movement and strengthens the foot, trunk and deep muscles.

“Precise movements on the kyBounder are essential with knee/hip pain or injury. Lateral/medial rolling of the ankle joint on the soft, elastic material has to be corrected so that the load is applied to the foot, knee and hip with proper axial alignment.”

Effective training on the kyBounder

Thomas Bochdanksy, head of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Regional Hospital Feldkirch / Rankweil, examined the effect of the kyBounders. The study shows that training on the kyBounder causes a much greater appeal to postural stability than a conventional PVC mat.

This intensive form of balance training improves the function of the deep muscles and also contributes to the reduction of pain, especially in the area of ​​the lumbar spine. Walking and running on the kyBounder reduces the impact on the joints, expands and strengthens the deep muscles and improves coordination.

What benefit does instability have during sports or in therapy and rehabilitation?

The trunk is the basis for any movement in your extremities. Generally, it can be said that the stronger that basis is, the better (more precise, targeted, extreme) the movement is. Exercising on a kyBounder leads to a general improvement in your balance and can thus help reduce your risk of a fall.

The kyBounder can play a valuable part in every field of preventive work (primary, secondary and tertiary prevention). Moreover, instability can also play a major role in improving your dynamic control of your joints, leading in the case of degenerative illnesses to better kinematics and kinetics and thus ideally distributing the load on your joints.

When measuring balance, it was found that the kyBounder provided the most instability compared with other exercise mats. From this we can conclude that balance training on the kyBounder can have a greater effect on dynamically stabilizing the spine, and should thus have a high primary and secondary effect in preventing backache.

Use the kybounder in your return to physical well-being

Whether you’re at work, at home, playing sport or simply relaxing – injuries can occur at any time. Unfortunately, preventative measures cannot always ensure that you avoid them.

In cases like this, effective rehabilitation is essential. It is important to heal wounds using the right tools and methods. Time and the type of rehabilitation play an important role. No matter what the type of therapy, it should take up as much time as necessary and take place as quickly as possible in order to ensure that you can make a swift and full recovery.

The kyBounder mat meet both of these requirements. Each individual rehabilitation exercise you do is far more effective when using the soft, springy surface, which leads to speedy and effective results. This is due to the quality of the material.

The polyurethane in the kyBounder means the mat  always cushions against the pressure from the weight of the body. As a result, your feet and the rest of your body are constantly moving, which exercises the deep inner muscles and releases tension.

Nurses are always on their feet, helping their fellow human beings. They ensure the well-being of their patients, day in and day out, while often forgetting about themselves. Things were different at the nursing conference at the Davos Congress Centre, where many talks were given, putting the focus entirely on the nurses.

The nursing professionals had a chance to experience a completely new way of sitting and standing, thanks in part to the soft, springy mats and soles from kybun. It was a wonderful experience that brought a smile on the participants’ faces.
