Active Living with Stroke – Survivor + Caregivers Programs
Learn how Nordic walking can be a great tool for people recovering from a
stroke. We’ll be presenting research-backed benefits of Nordic walking
and showing how an Urban Poling program can be used for support groups, caregiver programs and also for Next Steps walking groups in malls.
Find out why therapists recommend the patented evidence-based ACTIVATOR℗ Poles to facilitate a more even walking pattern compared to canes. Additionally, people with stroke have reported feeling more like an athlete when using poles instead of a cane!
Our ACTIVATOR℗ Poles can improve various outcomes for people with strokes including:
Increasing movement of the affected arm and leg
Improving arm swing during walking
increasing weight-bearing of the affected leg
Improving balance and posture
This webinar will also cover how to use the ACTIVATOR Poles for effective and enjoyable bilateral seated, standing and pre-walking exercises for individual and group exercise programs.
