The Urban Poling Activator Moda Walking Poles for Rehab are trekking poles with ergonomic grips that provide greater comfort and support, and larger bell tips for increased stability.

Unlike standard nordic walking poles, these walking poles for rehab are designed to take more pressure off the back and lower joints. Recommended by leading surgeons, physicians and therapists, these walking poles may be beneficial for rehabilitation programs, older adults, pre or post hip knee surgery, soft tissue injuries, Parkinsons, stroke, MS, chronic pain, cancer rehab, spinal conditions. The patented Coregrip is designed to provide greater comfort and supports the wrist in a neutral position to reduce strain. This large ergonomic handle is more comfortable than a standard grip, especially for users with arthritis or repetitive strain injury. Instead of a wrist strap, the grip features a wide ledge for a better stability and support. The bell shaped tips are made of high quality 55 durometer rubber to provide greater stability than boot shaped tips. Hidden beneath the rubber bell-shaped tip of each pole is a sharp carbide steel tip, which provides increased stability on wet and uneven terrain, such as grass, trails, gravel, sand and snow. Use the rubber bell-shaped tips indoors on dry sidewalks and asphalt and remove the bell-shaped tip to expose the carbide steel tip. The carbide steel tip provides increased traction and stability under such conditions.
