Improve Balance, Enhance Movement &
Normalize Walking with ACTIVATOR Poles
Join us to discover why clients with Parkinson Disease describe the use of evidence-based Activator Poles as being life-changing.
“ACTIVATOR Poles should be called Confidence Poles! I can say YES to being active”
Learn how the ACTIVATOR PUSH Technique improves balance, posture, and increases core strengthening with PWR!Moves in seated and standing!
The webinar will also explain how the specialized Urban fitness poles convert walking into a high intensity, full-body workout for those in the early stages of PD while the Activator technique helps to improve balance for clients in more advanced stages. The evidence-based ACTIVATOR Poles were developed through the lens of an OT & gerontologist for optimal outcomes for wellness/rehab programs.
Urban Poling is proud to be an education partner of PWR! and offers special pricing for courses and Activator/Urban Poles.
