Show Notes

In today's episode, we talk to founder of Urban Poling and developer of Activator Poles, Mandy Shintani.

An Occupational Therapist and Gerontologist by trade, learn how Mandy came to develop the poles to help overall wellness and rehabilitation.  See how she studied the design from poles from all over the world and how that became the basis for her creation of the Activator poles.

Come learn how these poles not only enhance your overall walking experience by engaging more muscles using the ledge system, but also how they can be used for a variety of populations including Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Cardiovascular disease, diabetes and more.

These are a great investment not only for general health and wellness, but also for mental health as well, since getting outdoors can do wonders for simple clarity.  

If you are someone that is working with these type of populations or just looking into different approaches to wellness, come see why these are a great addition to add to your routine!
