There are many benefits of Pole Walking. These include improved balance, core strength, posture & walking tolerance; reduced impact on painful joints; and increased confidence for walking. This presentation will explore these benefits and introduce the ACTIVATOR technique of Urban Poling. The ACTIVATOR poles and technique were co-designed by an occupational therapist specifically to improve the safety and stability of walking poles. They are used extensively in rehab settings instead of canes, crutches & walkers (when appropriate), and in group exercise programs. The presentation will also discuss the joys and “how to’s” of winter walking.
