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.Learn More
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:
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
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.Learn More

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."

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."
