Initially we worked to develop a project for the Integrated Falls service in 2014 but this soon expanded into other Departments and to date we have trained circa 40 physios to use poles within the neuro, mental health and community outreach programmes. The focus is on empowering patients to lead their peers too.
We have returned almost annually to train a further tranche of physios and they in turn have signposted hundreds of patients to peer led walking groups
Our WALX Activator poles are perfect for falls prevention, Rehabilitation, Parkinson’s Disease etc and we always provide signposting into our regular WELLNESS WALX for those who are ready to explore further
