The numerous neurological disorders can express themselves in a wide variety of ways. There are many possible symptoms and their severity can differ even with the same clinical picture, so that every affected individual can develop different primary problems.
Since there are many different neurological disorders that often have the same symptoms, we have summarised all related information on this page in the context of kybun. Every affected individual can take the information relevant to them.
All nervous system disorders.
The organ systems considered in neurology are the central nervous system, that is the brain and spinal cord, its surrounding structures and blood vessels, and the peripheral nervous system including its connecting structures to the muscles and muscular system.
The causes differ for each clinical picture, and are often not explicit or clear.
Possible causes include: Heredity, chronic infections or defective regulation of the immune system.
Worsening of the various symptoms, severe physical disabilities sometimes develop.
- Therapy, e.g. physiotherapy, occupational therapy
It is not possible to make general statements since the severity of symptoms for individuals affected by neurological disorders often differs significantly.
The kyBoot has an unstable sole, which promotes the coordination and strength of the feet and the entire body. The wearer can also feel the ground through the sole, boosting confidence while walking and stimulating foot sensitivity.
Symptoms such as dizziness, gait disturbances, and coordination and balance disturbances can therefore be addressed effectively with the kyBoot. Affected individuals can perform daily, adapted training with the kyBoot independently.
If body parts are paralysed, the affected individual or attending therapist has to assess whether the kyBoot alleviates the weaknesses and boosts confidence while walking or whether the affected individual is currently over challenged by the instability in the kyBoot. As long as the affected individual feels comfortable and safe in the kyBoot, we recommend it. If there is an increased risk of falling, we would advise against the kyBoot at this time and train the stabilizing foot musculature while standing on the kyBounder.
Specific initial reactions with neurological disorders:
In case of significant balance and coordination disturbances, the kyBoot may be too unstable in the beginning and the risk of falling too great.
The kyBounder is particularly well suited in this situation, since the affected individual can perform the exercises in place and hold on to a fixed object if required.

Give yourself sufficient time while testing the kyBoot or kyBounder, so your body can get used to the new feeling while walking and standing.
Listen to your body, how do you feel? Is the kyBoot/kyBounder good for you?
Take a short break if you feel fatigued or experience pain.
If you feel very uncertain in the kyBoot, we recommend the kyBounder. It allows you to focus on the correct body posture in place and hold on to a fixed object if necessary.
Try to integrate the kyBoot/kyBounder into your daily routine. The more often you train with it, the faster you will notice your body making progress. It is better to use it for shorter periods but more often each day.
