Innovation for inclusion

"When I first saw the Alinker, it was the racecar yellow color that caught my attention, followed by my thought that it looked like no mobility device I had ever seen.

Before I was sold on the idea of the Alinker, I was sold on Barbara’s vision. I was taken aback by the stories of the people helped by the device and simultaneously, I started thinking about people I could reach out to who would love to give it a try and who would benefit from it greatly.

Of course, being a bilateral below knee amputee, I didn’t think it would be useful to me. And then I sat on it and gave it a try. I realized that Barbara and Leon, made it look easy. I also realized that after so many years, I finally felt my hamstrings really work. Suffice it to say that after 15 minutes, my legs were burning, and I knew I wanted one.

For many, the Alinker is about giving people with mobility challenges the freedom to stay or become active again. To some, It’s about not accepting the norm, and challenging the status quo. And to others, It’s about creativity and innovation with a social conscience. But for me, it’s a device to help me on the road to achieving my goal of living a healthy and independent life. For all these reasons and many more, I am so glad I found the Alinker."

Our Story

Barbara Alink is a Dutch designer, architect, humanitarian, and inventor of the Alinker.
The Alinker story started with a comment of Barbara’s aging mother- Antonia Esman. While passing some elderly people with walkers and scooters, she said: "over my dead body will I ever use one of those!”. Barbara set out to design something better for her mum, but soon realised that what was truly needed was a vehicle for social change, challenging our assumptions about people with mobility challenges.
