Walking bike changes Coromandel woman’s life
Monday July 31, 2017 – JO GRIFFIN loves that people look at her at eye level now and that people, who in the past
ignored her, now comment on what a cool yellow machine she is sitting on.
“They see me and not my disability,” the Matarangi Beach electrical services business owner says in response to a
question about what a difference the Alinker
three-wheeled walking bike has made in her life.
Jo, married to Glenn, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) 28 years ago when she was 31. MS is a disease of the
central nervous system that affects movement, sensation and body functions.
