The unique floating feeling
The kybun mat is an elastic springy mat like no other. Its reactive rebound-effect allows the foot to sink in deep and springs straight back to its original position. The kybun mat encourages the body into constant, minute movements to maintain balance and posture. The rebound-effect causes the muscles to tense and relax simultaneously, exercising the muscles in your feet, legs and trunk. The kybun mat improves your balance, coordination and all-round fitness without taking up any extra time at all.
Which thickness is right for me?
- kybun mat 2cm – For therapy and rehabilitation (learning to walk again)
- kybun mat 4cm – For individuals with equilibrium problems or dizziness, senior citizens, children, and individuals with injuries.
- kybun mat 6cm – For general daily use: in training, at home, or at the office.
Basic principle: the thicker the mat, the more intense the training effect of standing on the kybun mat.
What distinguishes the kybun mat from a traditional therapy mat?
The kybun mat compresses a great deal when loaded and then relaxes immediately and completely, almost like a spring, when the load is reduced. This generates the maximum elasticity required to activate all the deep muscle layers in those standing on it. This effect is achieved primarily due to the kybun mat’s open-celled, breathable polyurethane pore structure.
Traditional therapy mats do not compress completely when loaded. Their structures harden when loaded, and the lack of elasticity creates a swimming, ‘wobbly’ effect. The springy effect is not achieved because the PVC pore structure, which is usually filled with air, regenerates only slowly when the load is reduced.
