Movement promotes quiet and concentration.

The upper school in Gossau, St. Gallen, has brought movement into the classroom. Thanks to the soft, supple, springy kyBounder mat and the high desks, pupils can stand in comfort and move about during lessons. The girls and boys themselves notice that they can work with a lot more concentration and do not get tired as quickly. The teachers, meanwhile, notice that fidgets, in particular, can work off excess energy thanks to the kyBounder. So everyone benefits from this new opportunity not to stand all the time

Playroom

Be it at nursery or primary school, little ones love running around and playing on kyBounder mats. It promotes natural movement and strengthens all of the muscles. What’s more, it automatically trains coordination between the brain, nerves and muscles.

Classroom

Not just for fidgeters

Children have a natural desire to move around, yet they are forced to sit still in the classroom for several hours every day. Many children want to escape this situation. They swing on their chairs and cannot concentrate and are often labeled as fidgeters.

Overview

The kyBounder simulates a soft, flexible surface. Even simply swaying on the kyBounder activates a range of different muscles. Studies show that moderately moving while learning makes learning easier and increases intelligence. In contrast, sitting still and concentrating result in significantly poorer results. What’s more, kybun prevents incorrect posture and relieves school-related stress.
