ACTIVATOR Course – Section 1
This section provides insight into the development of the ACTIVATOR poles and examples of the benefits of poles with a few inspiring individuals.
- What do you think are the possible benefits are of using poles for rehab?
- Why is there a more positive perception of using poles vs other devices?
- When watching the video of Harry McMurtry, please write down your observations of Harry’s gait and posture when walking without poles and with the ACTIVATOR™ Poles.
2018 update: There are now over 250+ available now on PubMed. There are 8 current/recent pilots studies on the ACTIVATOR Poles in Canada and UK.
Our strapless ergonomic handle was designed to develop “core fitness” as you walk. Pressing the outside edges of your hands against the wide base of the handle engages your core muscles and creates resistance that propels you forward.
