The 'Alinker' Looks to Offer an Alternative to Mobility Scooters

For people who need assistance with walking, mobility scooters are the tried and true method of transportation, but the 'Alinker' looks to change this perception.

Offering those who need it support while walking, the 'Alinker' works like an oversized trike that reduces the level of pressure placed on the legs. The unit offers support, but also encourages users to move on their own terms and maintain mobility without relying on battery-powered mobile scooters or other devices. The flexible design of the unit allows it to be folded and placed into a trunk or storage area.

The 'Alinker' was created by Barbara Alink who is currently funding the trike as part of an Indiegogo campaign. The innovative mobility aid has already garnered $10,000 over the funding goal and is sure to provide support and functionality for those who need it.
