Mission Statement

Huey091 Foundation helps America's disabled veterans improve the quality of their lives -- restoring the freedom and dignity of mobility by providing advanced mobility devices to our nation's wounded heroes.

We carry out this mission by raising funds and public awareness to support research, development and distribution of mobility technology. We have provided over 26 iBOTS, Levos and other high-tech devices to wounded veterans.

We have worked with DEKA Research over ten years and together we convinced the FDA at the end of 2013 to re-classify stair climbing wheelchairs as Class 2 Medical devices.

iBOT "WRENCH"  PROBLEM? 

OPERATION ONWARD, ANOTHER 501(C)(3) ORGANIZATION, HAS A TOLL FREE NUMBER 844 576-1377 A  VOLUNTEER WILL TRY AND HELP CLEAR WRENCHES WITH THE CIPHER CHALLENGE CODE.  DAYTIME HOURS IN THE EASTERN TIME ZONE,  YOU CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE FOR A CALL BACK. 

HOPEFULLY THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF RESTORING SOME SERVICE TO THE IBOT OWNERS. PRESENTLY, NEITHER 091 NOR OPERATION ONWARD HAVE YET SOLVED THE PROBLEM OF FINDING A SOURCE FOR NEW IBOT BATTERIES.  WE WE WILL POST ALL NEWS RIGHT HERE.

What's happening with the Ibot?

 

Many of our visitors over the years have come to associate America’s Huey 091 Foundation with The iBOT® Mobility System.  In 2013 Huey 091 Foundation helped DEKA Research obtain FDA Classification of the stair climbing wheelchair as a Class 2 Medical Device and we have continued to work tirelessly to try and help DEKA restart the manufacture of a new generation iBOT Mobility System.  There is no doubt that the iBOT is still the most amazing and useful mobility device, but we have limited resources and feel Huey 091 can now best serve our mission of helping our wounded disabled veterans by working to provide them more readily available technology. 

Recently, we have gotten many calls and emails from iBOT owners looking for a new set of batteries for their existing iBots.  We know that DEKA is trying to find a battery manufacturer  willing to build new batteries for this limited but important market. 

While we hope that there will be news one day of a new IBOT being built with state of the art new components, new features, and we hope new batteries will be available even sooner, for now, we would ask you not to write or call us for further help with your iBOT battery or failure code issues.  When we learn of any changes, we will post something right here for our visitors to see.

 And, almost as an honor and tribute to Mike .www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2014-04-14/pdf/2014-08257.pdf the FDA just ruled yesterday, classifying "stair climbing wheelchairs" as Class II Medical Devices" (this "includes" the iBOTS).

May God bless Mike, Diane & their children and help us carry on his committment of Patriotism and love for our Nation and our Military, especially those whose service led to sacrific of life and limbs.
