Evidence based studies clearly identify poling, with the proper training, as a healthy mode of physical activity suited for improving quality of life.  Kang et al., 2016

Why ACTIVATOR Poles?

  • Awareness and use of the affected side
  • Functional gait pattern
  • Increased gait speed, stride and walking tolerance
  • Provides bilateral support
  • Improves the factors related to fall prevention

The most dramatic success was with a mature gentleman with a mild stroke. Once he tried the Activator poles his gait improved enormously, with a more even stride cadence and length. The result was instant.
