Fall prevention becomes more important the more our population ages. Let us help you to make your home safer with these tips from the experts (that's us!).

Balance & stability have never looked so good! If you’re active & intend to remain that way, but need a hand with stability & fall prevention when you’re out and about, the ACTIVATOR Poles are perfect.

The ACTIVATOR Poles reduce the impact on your hip & knee joints, & may be excellent for rehab after knee/hip surgery (check with your healthcare professional first).
