The Alinker – Happy Small
The Alinker is designed for how we want to live, regardless of mobility challenges -- a non-motorized walking bike without pedals, with an adjustable saddle and handlebars. It is custom-designed to challenge society’s assumptions about disability. Reclaim your freedom with the Alinker walking bike.
Who is The Alinker for?
From experiences over the years we have learned that the Alinker works for people who live with Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson’s, CMT, Arthritis, Spinal Cord Injuries or had a stroke or an amputation, but it is essential that you have the mindset to be active again. Using the Alinker helps to activate your brain. The brain wants to work, and when activated it can create new neural pathways to motor your body, so you can regain your balance and muscle mass, mobility and independence for as much as is possibly imaginable.
The Alinker can be hard work, especially when you have lost a lot of your mobility. It takes work and effort, commitment and determination, and sometimes, with all the best will in the world, it does not work.
It is hard to say for who it works and for who it might not, hence we offer the 30-day return policy, but please do not order it when you expect an easy ride on the first day.
In general, we think this can be a guide for minimum requirements:
- Have some command over your legs.
- Be able to lift one leg while standing on the other.
- Be aware and cognizant of your surroundings.
- Be able to make judgement calls on your own abilities.
- Know your limitations in order not to overdo it or be unsafe.
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."

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."
