Please help me fund the purchase of an Alinker, so that I can stay active, regardless of my mobility challenges. The Alinker is a three-wheeled, non-motorized walking bike, designed to be eye-catching at eye level. This is innovation for inclusion!

I am Michele and I have MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and a host of other physical issues.  I have a lot of pain and difficulty in standing and walking.  I would like to do more with my life. 

 

This Alinker Bike is exactly what I need.  It isn't a wheelchair or scooter that will limit daily activities, and this will help me to keep in shape.

 

I figure if enough people are involved in my campaign, just a few dollars contributed with go a long way!  If you could share my campaign, it would be soooo appreciated!

 

I was so excited to see this bike, and it was exactly what I had in my mind that I could use to exercise my muscles and get fresh air and be a real person again.  I normally would never do a funding project, as I have never asked anyone for a dime in my entire life.  This is the first and will likely be the last thing I would go out on a limb to have.  This is not just for my body but for my spirit as well.

Inclusion is something we achieve together.

 

What is the Alinker?

The Alinker is an exceptionally cool, three-wheeled walking bike for humans with mobility constraints. It’s not a medical device, it’s a lifestyle tool, designed to enable users to lead active and socially engaged lives — at eye level. More than a cool product, it’s a solution to a design challenge we all face together: how to create a more inclusive society, for all types of bodies.  

On the Alinker, users sit upright -- at eye level with standing companions. Weight is supported by the seat with no stress on the lower body, while handle bars provide additional support. Feet remain on the ground, keeping users stable and safe.

Who is the Alinker for?

The Alinker is for people who want to stay active, regardless of mobility challenges.

To operate and use the Alinker you must have the ability to:

  • walk to some degree
  • flex and extend your legs
  • bear weight on one leg briefly while getting on and off the Alinker
  • be consciously aware of your surroundings
  • be aware of your ability and limitations
