Alinker launched its walking tricycle which allows individuals with cerebral palsy to move under their own power without the need for a walker and without the limitations of an electric scooter.

These new movement assistance devices come to the market in order to help those who have been historically limited by insurance and access to assistive devices. The Alinker is available to everyone, and the company has taken recent steps to make the device more affordable as well.
The Alinker is designed to stimulate the body in ways that traditional mobility assistance does not. Electric scooters and other similar devices encourage a more sedentary approach, stifling blood flow with the added drawback of a range limited by battery life. This device, however, does not have either of these negative aspects.
This mobility assistance bike features a padded, ergonomic seat and a foldable, easy-to-store metal frame. The device’s design allows the mobility-impaired to navigate rough and uneven terrain easily with a built-in braking system and other accessibility features. A full guide for device operation is available on their website.
The Alinker is specifically tailored to those who have conditions such as cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy, and arthritis. Those suffering from these conditions may still be able to move, but lack the ability to support themselves, which is exactly what this device is designed to assist with.
To deal with the issue of affordability, the company has included support for Go Fund Me-style crowdfunding campaigns, allowing participants to raise the money for the device directly from the community they are a part of, already providing hundreds of devices to those who otherwise would not have had access.
The team behind the Alinker has stated that their mission is to encourage those living with a disability to engage with their community and to have the freedom to do so. They know the importance of human connection and the freedom provided by autonomy, which is what the Alinker has been designed to provide.
