We couldn’t be happier of the positive impact that our Urban and Activator poles and educational programs have made on the lives of so many with Parkinson’s.
Walking with poles offers a much needed form of physical activity that can easily be added to any daily exercise routine while providing a welcome and
effective alternative to more traditional passive devices like canes and walkers. Learning to use them is fun and easy because it’s like normal walking with but with many added perks.
In fact, evidence-backed research shows that walking with poles improves leg stride, supports a more natural gait pattern and reduces shuffling in Parkinson’s clients.
What’s more, urban poling is a fun and easy activity which is a motivating factor in sticking with a daily exercise routine.
So here’s to keeping you moving longer and standing taller with our poles at your side!
