This Motorless ‘Walking Bike’ Without Pedals Is Helping Those with Parkinson’s or MS Stay Active

This is the Alinker, a non-motorized walking-bike without pedals invented by Barbara Alink, a Dutch designer, architect, and humanitarian. This innovative three-wheeled walking bike allows active individuals confronted with the diagnosis of MS or Parkinson’s for example, maintain their active lifestyle. It has an adjustable saddle, seat height, and handlebars.

The Alinker comes in three frame sizes. The inseam is the most important measurement to determine which Alinker suits you best. The Alinker allows its user to actually walk on the ground while offering support. It also has breaks that can be locked in place when getting on and off of the walking bike.



The main goal behind the Alinker’s custom design is “to challenge society’s assumptions about disability” and to enable those with limited mobility the freedom to stay active, independent and be at eye-level with others. Alinkers can also be used by people with arthritis, amputations, diabetes, stroke recovery, rehabilitation after surgery, neuropathy, RA, SCI, etc.
