ACTIVATOR™ Course for Rehab Professionals

ACTIVATOR banner

Motivate your clients while significantly improving treatment outcomes for balance, core strength, posture, endurance; reducing impact on lower extremities and joints; and promoting functional gait patterns.

Learn how this dynamic evidence based patent pending tool is revolutionizing rehabilitation and is being used extensively in all continuum’s of health care and has many benefits compared to passive mobility devices such as canes, crutches and even walkers.

They have been instrumental in promoting an upright posture and a functional walking pattern compared to canes and walkers. In my opinion they facilitate rehabilitation and return patients to optimal function faster.”
Dr. Charles G. Fisher MD MHSc FRCSC, Past President of the Canadian Spine Society

Second Nature

The most important aspect of Nordic walking is to just enjoy yourself.  After a while, the technique will become second nature and you will feel confident, efficient, and ready to take on the world!
