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.
The most important aspect of Nordic walking is to just enjoy yourself. After a while, the technique will become second nature and you will feel confident, efficient, and ready to take on the world!
