We make high-quality mobility accessible – We offer 3 ways to own your Alinker
"The Alinker is a game changer!"
– Selma Blair
The Alinker is a revolution in walk assists. It is a three wheeled self-propelled walking bike, designed for the user experience. The Alinker is a non-motorized walking-bike without pedals. The Alinker is for people who want to maintain an active life regardless of mobility challenges. The Alinker is challenging assumptions about people with disabilities and is building an inclusive community.
The Alinker company is a certified B Corporation and SHEEO venture, measuring social and environmental impact through the Sustainable Global Development Goals. The Alinker creates access to mobility, community and healthy food through the vision of changing the paradigm of our current 'sickcare' system towards a healthcare community that actually supports the wellness of people.

How It Works
Other than the physical state, having a mindset dedicated to health and wellness has proven to be a crucial factor for successfully using the Alinker. Based on our experience, we can generally say that you need to be at least able to do the following:
- Have some command over your legs.
- Be able to lift one leg while standing on the other.
- Be aware and cognizant of your surroundings.
- Know your limitations in order not to overdo it or be unsafe.
Be prepared to spend some time to get used to the new way of moving, it addresses muscle groups you might not have used for a while, and building your condition is to be done gradually. Showing commitment to maintaining healthy practice and knowing that it will be worth the effort - this is what investing in your wellness can look like.Learn More
How to find your Alinker size
- Stand against a wall and put a hard cover book loosely between your legs.
- Measure from floor to top of the book.
- Consult our size grid to find the correct fit.
If your measurement is on the cusp for sizing, ALWAYS contact customer service (+1-604-398-4947), or choose the smaller size.

There is no reason not to plant trees. So far the Alinker has planted over 35,000 trees.

We understand that many people who could use the Alinker have lost income and gained medical expenses, our current reactive sickcare system drives people into poverty, we get that. And... the Alinker is a high quality custom designed bike, hand assembled with nearly all custom-made parts, and that has a price.
The Alinker is not a medical device and health insurances typically do not cover things that support wellness, so in order to help bridge the gap, we offer special ways to make the Alinker more accessible. We know building a new system takes time, but we continue to develop ways to make the Alinker accessible for everybody regardless of income. It requires a paradigm shift, to build a healthcare system that actually supports wellness.
We are currently accepting new applications to crowdfund on the Alinker website. If you would like more information, please read more about Crowdfunding here. For any additional questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Reasons to Buy the Alinker
Since the Alinker, my quality of life has shifted - now I never really think about my diagnosis.
"As a social person, being constraint in my ability to go out, be in one place, not moving, not being out there having fun… it was challenging. With the Alinker, my life has become more busy - I want to keep doing more. The Alinker makes me want to get out there - it gives me the security and confidence to be able to go out into the world by myself."
Anna O, active Alinker userLearn More
I feel secure when riding the Alinker.
"Being physically restraint created for me mental issues, often just anthill size, but if you have them in front of you everyday, it grows all by itself. Before the Alinker, I was in a grey time… I had pretty much given up on moving like a normal human being again. Now, I can go for a walk, go out with the dog again, get out in the neighbourhood - some people I hadn’t seen in 3 years.
The Alinker has made that possible."Learn More
Since I’ve had the Alinker, my autonomous world is bigger.
"I know that I can do more things on my own, then I feel I have more agency over myself. I can be independent moving around spaces like leaving my house, airports, train stations, even museums… I am not relying on someone else to move me around anymore. But now that I have the Alinker, I can walk, talk, and laugh at the same time. I feel safe, I feel better about myself, and I feel more confident."
