"Game Changer" according to Harry McMurtry who used ACTIVATOR Poles on his 500 Miles for Parkinson’s.
I was steered to use the Activators by my Parkinson’s physiotherapist and I am very pleased that she did. My gait has improved and I have reduced my time to complete my walks by some 30-50%, so now I am focusing on going greater distance. My therapist has remarked that I am no longer shuffling.
I have noticed an unbelievable change in my Parkinson’s clients – their confidence increases as soon as they have the poles in their hands, they walk taller and straighter and it has been a great tool for gait retraining in terms of increasing their stride and walking tolerance. The best part is that they started smiling during our sessions!
