Activator Nordic walking poles, are they right for me?

Urban Poling ACTIVATOR poles for rehab and exercise

Our ACTIVATOR™ Poles were designed specifically for rehab by an occupational therapist. The unique features of these poles – including bell-shaped tips, ergonomic strapless handles, anti-vibration features and a secure button locking system – offer stability with your safety in mind.
Walking with ACTIVATOR™ Poles reduces the impact on your hip and knee joints, improves core strength and posture, and helps promote a functional gait pattern.
These poles may be suitable for post/hip knee surgery, MS, Parkinson’s, osteoarthritis, ABI and fall prevention. If you have a chronic condition or injury, ask your physician, therapist or treating rehabilitation specialist if the ACTIVATOR™ Poles are right for you.
