Physical and mental faculties may wane with increasing age: muscular strength, eyesight, hearing, response times and physical coordination, for example. All of us would like to be able to move about freely without pain – even at a very advanced age, if possible. The soft, springy kyBounder from kybun makes this as close to reality as possible. Fortunately, the kyBounder not only improves your gait, it also motivates you by making physical activity fun!
The kyBounder makes walking extremely comfortable and relieves the tension in your body. Training with kybun products helps you rediscover the joy of being active. We take advantage of these benefits in our holistic movement therapy, particularly for those who cannot enjoy walking because it is painful, because they cannot move very well or because they no longer believe they can walk safely.
Gaining more control over movement processes
Walking on the kyBounder refines your gait by making you unstable, which in turn activates small muscle chains that facilitate balance and coordination. The body keeps firm, exerting greater control over itself. Participants thereby gain better control of their movements. This form of walking forces you to stop relying on relieving postures and makes you significantly improve your movement processes after just a few minutes without you even noticing. Training with the kyBounder also improves your blood and lymph circulations by activating your vein pump to a greater extent. There is simply more movement in your foot, calf, gluteal, hip and back muscles. Furthermore, walking on the kyBounder stretches your muscles and has a powerful training effect. Up to 80 per cent of residents in retirement and nursing homes can use the product.
Facilitating communal experiences
At the same time, elderly people benefit not only physically from training with kybun products. The psychological and social benefits are also incredibly important. The training enables elderly people to feel more confident and allows them to believe in their abilities. Furthermore, training with kybun products encourages social interaction and facilitates communal experiences.
