Active Programs for Senior Living

Summarized by Dr. Agnes Coutinho PhD

Healthcare professionals working with older adults are routinely prescribing walking, as part of rehabilitation and overall health and wellness programs. There are over 280+ research studies identifying health benefits of adding specialized poles to any walking routine. Due to improved balance, posture, reduced impact on painful joints, improved mood, confidence and positive impact on overall health, Urban Poling is an accessible and affordable activity. ACTIVATOR℗ Poles were designed for people requiring help with stability and balance, as well as less active older adults.

ACTIVATOR℗ Poles are the only ones available on the market which have been designed by an occupational therapist to improve safety, comfort and effectiveness and to mitigate factors related to falls.

Urban Poling gives me a super workout, a longer stride and I walk a lot faster! I feel better when I am doing urban poling and I feel great after.

– Kathy Gilford

I never thought I would start a craze in our town through our older adult programming, but that is exactly what has happened with our Urban Poling Program.

– Cheryl Philips, Older Adult Program Co-ordinator

Activator walking poles are phenomenal in older adult fitness classes. The four points of contact help improve posture balance, and security. But most important of all is the way that participants’ self-esteem goes off the chart.

– Don Ferguson, older adult fitness instructor

I enjoy walking now because my fears of injury are gone. I feel confident, stand taller and get a better workout. I love the ergonomic handles because my hands don’t get sore like they did from gripping my other poles.

– Bob Lewis

I really love my Urban Poles! Let me tell you I have used the poles twice to catch myself from falling on slippery roads.
