Non-Motorized Walking Bike | No-Pedal Limited Mobility Assistance Product Launch
The newly released product is a three-wheeled non-motorized walking bike without pedals, with an adjustable saddle and handlebars. It has been created to challenge society’s assumptions about disability by empowering handicapped people to stay active and giving them the freedom to live their lives despite their physical limitations.

Alinker was launched to provide people with limited mobility with a tool to help them regain agility, flexibility, and independence. A suitable alternative to wheelchairs, it allows users who still have sensation in the legs to retrieve balance and muscle mass. Movement activates the brain’s neural pathways, thereby promoting mental productivity, cognition, and memory.
Designed not as a medical device but rather as a tool to promote well-being and inclusivity, Alinker offers individuals with disabilities a strong sense of self, control over their lives and surroundings, and overall physical and mental health.
The self-driven bike allows users to move around by themselves without the help of another person. It promotes social engagement by allowing them the dignity to stand and talk at eye level with their peers. It offers those living with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease, CMT, arthritis, stroke, spinal cord injuries, or limp amputations a means to live self-sufficiently.
The product weighs 12kgs and is foldable. The wheels and the saddle can be removed through the quick-release systems and can be stowed in the trunk of most small cars. It is also equipped with 2 safety brakes – on the rear wheel and a parking lock on the brake handle.
Alinker is available in three sizes (happy small, small, and medium) and can hold a maximum of 120kgs. Visit https://www.thealinker.com/pages/how-it-works for more details.
A satisfied Alinker user says, “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.”
