York Nordic Motivator Walking Pole Grip
Research supports and proves that the act of Nordic Walking actually offers more health benefits than regular walking, jogging, biking and running. (Health Benefits — ANWA.us — americannordicwalking.com) York Nordic's new Motivator walking poles have a newly designed ergonomic grip that lends support to Nordic Walking to ensure maximum benefit and comfort to the user. As with York Nordic's other walking poles, the new Motivator is available in 20 custom designs that provide style and flair.
Lauren DeLong, the creator of the Motivator, noted "The Motivator offers patented (pending) contoured grips with two thumb support positions to stabilize the trapeziometacarpal joint and reduce strain on the carpometacarpal (CMC) thumb joint. This never seen before strapless grip design improves proprioception and offers state of the art ergonomics and best in class hand support for the biaxial saddle joint. The result is a 10 times reduction in stress at CMC joint minimizing torsional load while providing balance and stability to the patient looking for motivation to begin walking more confidently."
In addition to general health benefits, Nordic Walking has been shown to aide those living with Parkinson's Disease, MS and osteoarthritic hips and knees by aiding stability and developing strength.
York Nordic was founded by Lauren, who is also a certified Nordic Walking instructor, when she decided to design and manufacture her own poles after finding most poles lacked quality, style, and key features for different age groups and physical abilities. The poles are sold nationally and have been used in classes and health studies throughout the U.S. Visit www.yorknordic.com.Contact Information:
