Raisons pour acheter l'Alinker

Depuis l'Alinker, ma qualité de vie a changé - maintenant je ne pense plus vraiment à mon diagnostic.

"En tant que personne sociale, être contrainte dans ma capacité à sortir, être à un seul endroit, ne pas bouger, ne pas être dehors à m'amuser... c'était difficile. Avec l'Alinker, ma vie est plus animée - je veux continuer à en faire plus. L'Alinker me donne envie de sortir - elle me donne la sécurité et la confiance de sortir voir le monde par moi-même."

Je me sens en sécurité quand je roule avec l'Alinker.

"Pour moi, être restreinte physiquement a engendré des troubles mentaux, souvent juste de la taille d'une fourmilière, mais si vous les avez devant vous tous les jours, ils finissent par s'aggraver. Avant l'Alinker, je vivais une période assez noire... j'avais pour ainsi dire abandonné l'espoir de me déplacer comme un être humain normal. Maintenant, je peux aller marcher, à nouveau sortir le chien, me promener dans le voisinage - je n'ai pas vu certaines personnes depuis 3 ans.

L'Alinker a rendu tout cela possible."

Depuis que j'ai l'Alinker, mon cercle d'autonomie s'est agrandi.

"Je sais que je peux faire plus de choses par moi-même, je sens que j'ai un meilleur contrôle. Je suis plus indépendante dans certains espaces, comme quitter ma maison, les aéroports, les stations de train, même les musées... Je ne suis plus dépendante d'une autre personne pour me déplacer. Maintenant j'ai l'Alinker, je peux marcher, parler et rire, tout cela en même temps. Je me sens en sécurité, je me sens mieux dans ma peau et je suis en confiance."

Foire aux questions

Are there any videos to see how it all works?

Yes! We made many very short videos for you to see. We named them according to the activity in the video, so it is easier to find exactly what you need.

Can my Mom who has Parkinson's use an Alinker?

Over the first years already we have experience with hundreds of people with all different abilities and challenges. It is very hard to say who will be successful with the Alinker based on just the physical condition.

In general, we can say that people who have always been quite active and then get confronted with the diagnosis of MS or Parkinson’s for example, are looking for something that allows them to keep their active life style.

We can also say that Alinkers are used by people with Parkinson’s, MS, Arthritis, amputees, diabetes, stroke recovery, rehabilitation after surgery, neuropathy, RA, SCI and so on.

It is not so much the physical abilities but rather the mind set of wanting to be active and engaged, wanting to be healthy and active, knowing that it will take effort, but that the effort is worth the benefits and well-feeling.

Purely physically, we can say that people need to be at least able to do the following:

  • Have some command over your legs.
  • Be able to lift one leg while standing on the other.
  • Be aware and cognizant of your surroundings.
  • Know your limitations in order not to overdo it or be unsafe.

Are there baskets or other accessories?

The Alinker can be equipped with systems for small bags and possibly a basket, though we caution you to not to hang too much weight on the steering bar. It makes steering less comfortable and might compromise the steering mechanism.

We are developing Alinker specific bags to be strapped around the frame with Velcro.

In general though, all accessories that can fit on bicycles, can likely fit on the Alinker. Think about cup holders, bells, phone mounts, lights, reflectors, etc.

Keep an eye on the shop for new Alinker specific products we will add to our line of products over time.

We always welcome suggestions from Alinker users as to which accessories they would like or are looking for. So let us know!

What size am I?

The Alinker comes in three frame sizes so far. The inseam is the most important measurement to determine which Alinker suits you best.

Each Alinker has an adjustable seat height, giving you a range.

First you need to measure your inseam. NOTE: the inseam for the Alinker is to the ground, not the seam of your pants! (refer to the product page for instructions on how to measure).

You'll need a Small if your inseam measures between 27 – 31.5 inches (68 – 80cm).

You'll need a Medium if your inseam measures between 32 – 36 inches (81 – 91cm).

You'll need a Large if your inseam measures between 36.5 – 39 inches (93 – 99cm).

If you are right in between sizes please select the smaller frame size.

These measurements are based on a saddle pen with suspension which comes standard on the Alinker. A fixed saddle pen can be fitted, whereby the saddle height will come down by around 1.5 inches (4cm)

Can I buy one and are they available?

Yes, you can buy them in three frame sizes Small Medium and Large, depending on your measurements. Please see the “How to measure” FAQ.

We try to always have them in stock so you should have them within a week of ordering, but keeping the balance between sufficient stock and demand is challenging so at times one size might be on backorder. In that case we will let you know the estimated waiting time before you check out. You will see a notification as soon as you select the size in the online shop.

Shipping and estimated delivery times are always estimates and subject to circumstances not necessarily under our control.

What about going down hill?

The Alinker is designed to make walking easier and is best suited for flat and relatively flat areas. Going up and downhill is more challenging, as going uphill in a wheel chair or on a bike would be. It is hard to speak in general but some people will see slight hills as a good challenge to practice their muscles and gain strength and for other people slight hills might be too challenging.

The standard rear brake is adequate for everyday use and can be held when going down a slight sloping area in order not to speed up. When going down hills, you should not pick up speed, stay under 5Km/hr. (3MPH). The Alinker R-volution should not be used to race downhill for example. Suggested speed should not exceed 5km/hr, going down sloping areas suggested to go slower and stay safe and in control.
