“My Alinker came yesterday and we put it together with no difficulty. It took a few tries but I did get on it and moved around my house. I plan to go outside with it when our Georgia weather is a little friendlier. I bought a basket to go on the Alinker and the cards you sent are safely in a plastic bag to give to anyone who asks--and they will ask. I will be posting a video of my bike-walking on my Facebook page as soon as I can and will also send the video to my doctors and physical therapists. My MS doctors are at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, a well-known hospital specializing in spinal cord injuries and other neurological problems. The MS staff wants me to bring the Alinker to my next appointment. They have even offered lunch as an incentive.” — I.G. (Georgia, Atlanta, USA)
"My husband and I have no regrets in trying this for him. It is such a novel and exciting method of movement and we have shared it with so very many people. Anyone that sees it always asks about it and we always offer them a try. I took the Alinker to the bike store to see about a different seat for comfort and all the sales people and the manager took a spin on it through their store and were having a blast. I gave them all a book mark to look at the website and videos. I told them they need to carry these in all sizes and especially when the child sizes are available. We are going to contact Camp Pendelton Marine Base, which is in our town, for the Wounded Warrior program. We are going to ask to donate Dad's Alinker to them for use in their program and maybe give it to a soldier that can use it on a daily basis to improve the quality of their life. I will let you know what they say. I think they will be very excited about the prospects that Alinker offers. Thank you for developing such a wonderful and fun mobility tool. It is so exciting to think of an Alinker for kids, too!">— Anne Atkins (California, USA)
