The Alinker
Welcome

How It Works

The Alinker is a non-motorized walking-bike without pedals. With an adjustable saddle and handlebars, it is custom designed to challenge society’s assumptions about disability.

Most medical devices are a technical solution for a body with a problem, it emphasizes the "problem". But, we are humans, and we have a body. The body does not determine who we are.

So the Alinker is designed for how we want to live, regardless of mobility challenges.

The Alinker is for people who identify with being an active person (who they are), but happen to have an illness or condition that impacts their mobility (what they have). It is for people who want to maintain an active life and support their wellness practices.

From intense engagement with our customers, we know that the Alinker is used by people with Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Cord Injuries, Muscular Dystrophy (including CMT), Arthritis, (Pre)-Diabetes, Neuropathy, as well as people going through stroke recovery, or post-surgery rehabilitation, amputees and so on.

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.

Wheelchairs are awesome for people who need them!
But, did you know that half of the people using a wheelchair can still use their legs?

There was nothing designed for them to use their legs actively and be at eye level, so the Alinker could be a great addition!

Many people who break their back / neck, or get diagnosed with MS, etc, hear from their doctors that they should get used to the idea of using a wheelchair, that they will not walk again. But walking you do also with your brain! We are discovering that the Alinker activates the brain circuitry and with practice, more is possible.

Our urban landscapes are changing and the Alinker is an excellent ‘last-mile’ vehicle, making an inner-city a more inclusive environment, where people with a variety of abilities are using the same vehicle.
