I have some mobility and balance issues so walking was a chore, even though I love to walk. I discovered Urban poles and bought a pair of Activator poles over 1.5 years ago. I have never looked back. I walk every day! I am able to walk faster and with more confidence. I was on a weight loss journey and thanks to my poles giving me the confidence to walk, I lost 70 lbs. I am excited to share my story!

I have Cauda Eqina Syndrom and a severe dizziness and balance problem. I can hardly walk with a walker. My vestibular therapist recommended the Activator poles and we are both amazed at how well they are working for me

I bought your poles as a Christmas present for my wife and she gives them an A+. She is active and has seen a notable improvement in her balance and greater peace of mind/safety while hiking."

*Consult your physician or therapist before using the poles if you currently use a cane or walker, or if you are currently recovering from an injury or surgery.​
