Customer Testimonial

Woman walking in forest with urban poles

Thank you for introducing me to the activator poles. They have made my life so much easier, being lightweight and adjustable height, plus allowing me to further straighten my back. So much easier to use than the task of putting my wheelie walker in and out of the car, and more flexible around my home. Many thanks!
