Activator Pole Walking

Activator Poles

ACTIVATOR Poles were designed by Canadian therapists and are particularly suitable for people with balance concerns or mobility issues or those with low fitness levels who want an introduction to physical activity.

ACTIVATOR Poles are becoming an increasingly popular way of walking that has many benefits, such as:

- improves stability
- reduces impact on hips/knees
- develop core strength
- improve posture;
- promotes better gait pattern.

It is suitable for people of all ages and abilities and is particularly recommended to people who suffer from MS, Parkinson's, Arthritis, or recovering from hip/knee surgery or injury.

Our tutors are trained by FitWalk Ireland to deliver Activator Pole training and we have recently started rolling out programmes to the community. The feedback has been very encouraging and we will certainly be holding Activator Poles programmes more regularly.
