Urban Poling Urban Activator
The Activator Two Piece Shaft
The Activator telescoping pole is made of aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. The telescoping pole can be adjusted for people of all heights between 4’2” and 6’2”.
Appropriate length of the poles can be determined and adjusted by an individual or the health care professional
The poles are designed with a button-lock system to increase safety by eliminating the concern of the pole collapsing due to insufficient tightening of the locking mechanism. The button-lock system also allows the health care professional to determine the appropriate length of the poles.
The Activator Grip
The ergonomically patented grip fits the hand like no other grip you’ll find, while providing unparalleled comfort. The wide shape of the handle is perfect for those individuals with arthritis or those at risk for repetitive strain injuries. The technique is based on placing resistance on the base of the handle — our handle is never meant to be gripped tightly.
The Activator Bell Shaped Tip
The bell shaped tip provides greater stability and weight bearing than the traditional Nordic walking boot tip. In addition, if the user removes the bell shaped tip, the carbide steel tip can provide more stability in winter conditions on sidewalks and roads.
The Activator is designed for minimal vibration. The bell shaped tip, black ferrule and grip are designed to absorb the shock while walking both indoors and on asphalt.
