"I could manage with my cane," Blair wrote. "It became untenable and painful to my joints.

Selma Blair is no longer walking with a cane amid her battle with multiple sclerosis.

The actress, who revealed her MS diagnosis back in October, shared a photo on Instagram on Friday, above, where she said she traded in a cane for a non-motorized walking bike called the Alinker because her cane became "untenable" and "painful."

In the shot, "Cruel Intentions" star posed with the device and its founder Barbara Alink, thanking her for creating the mobility bike.

"We met! I cannot express the gratitude I have towards the kindness and hard work of #barbaraalinker," Blair began in the caption. "She is the woman behind the invention, design and build of this wonderful #walkingbike."

The "Legally Blonde" actress went on to rave about the Alinker and how she prefers it over the cane she used.

"I have been without my @the_alinker_world while taking care of things back home, seeing family and healing and thought I could manage with my cane," Blair said. "It became untenable and painful to my joints. So she found me. ❤️ she gave me this bike. And I took off."

"So many people have already stopped me to ask about it," she continued. Good thing I am a chatterbox and so happy with this #mobilityaid, I feel like a model at a car show. Gonna nap. And look forward to the days ahead with faster , smoother , increased mobility in a walking city. Thank you thank you @the_alinker_world #gamechanger #reactivateyourbrain #activateyourbrain #kindness #brilliance. #life 🙌 #thealinker"

Blair has been open with her battle with MS journey since revealing her diagnosis last fall. Back in April, the "Hellboy" star shared a sweet photo of her and Michael J. Fox on Instagram with a note expressing her immense gratitude for the "Back to the Future" legend, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in the early '90s.

Blair previously spoke about Fox helped guide her through her diagnosis.

"I like this man. @realmikejfox,"she captioned the pic. "I am not alone in feeling this way. Notice our #underdog shirts. He has #misfits while I have on #badnewsbears . We are all a #timecapsule in this photo. #michaeljfox #selmablair #misfits #badnewsbears #80s #90s #2000s my heart."
