Mission Statement

HUEY091 FOUNDATION NAME HAS CHANGED TO THE INDEPENDENCE CORPS 

AND THE MISSION, ALONG WITH OUR BOARD OF TRUSTEES IS GROWING...

INDEPENDENCE CORPS will continue to  help America's disabled veterans improve the quality of their lives -- restoring their INDEPENDENCE, their  freedom and dignity of mobility - providing  our nation's wounded heroes advanced mobility devices. 

 Our donors will also help fund advanced treatments for traumatic brain injured veterans, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment at approved facilities around the country.

We carry out our missions by raising funds and public awareness. We have supported the most advanced technologies, research and development. We have provided iBOTS, Levos,  X-8's, Track Chairs and other high-tech devices to wounded veterans.

For over 11 years we have worked with DEKA Research and we were instrumental in convincing the FDA to reclassify the stair climbing balancing wheelchair (the "iBOT") a Class 2 Medical Device, opening the door to hopefully see a next generation iBOT be manufactured soon.

WE WELCOME COL. STEVE DANYLUK (USMC, Ret) AS VICE-CHAIR AND THE NEWEST MEMBER OF OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

What's happening with the Ibot?

 

Many of our visitors  associate  091 Foundation with The iBOT® Mobility System.  In 2013 we helped DEKA Research obtain FDA reclassification 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.  

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 for older iBOTS we are not in charge of those events.  As soon as we learn of any changes, we will post something right here for our visitors to see.
