    I purchased these to prevent the strain of the straps on my wrists from my other trekking poles. I have used them on sidewalks with the tips provided and with the snow baskets for snowshoeing. They are comfortable and adjustable. I highly recommend them

    Activator rehab walking poles

    Posted by Colin Banfield on 3rd Oct 2021

    I feel well supported by these poles, thanks to their sturdy yet lightweight design, unique hand grip shape & support, firm hard rubber non-slip feet and adjustable grip height, as well as a pleasing look. They are helping me return to walking with a right leg injured by a cancer-produced compression fracture of my lower back, surgically stabilized in spring 2021.

    I really like the walking poles. They really relieve the pain in my knee and as a bonus, they relieve the nerve pain in my leg which is created by back problems.
