OUR MISSION, ALONG WITH OUR BOARD OF TRUSTEES, IS GROWING...
While we changed our name to Independence Corps to be more easily identified with our mission from Day 1, we continue to help America's disabled veterans improve the quality of their lives -- restoring their INDEPENDENCE, their freedom and dignity that comes with greater INDEPENDENT mobility - providing our nation's wounded heroes the most advanced mobility devices available.
The primary mission of the Independence Corps continues to be
to provide the high-tech tools, therapies and guidance that those veterans severely
injured in the service to our country who are
otherwise not receiving these critical tools. With case by case evaluation and earmarked donations we can sometimes also address the needs of injured and disabled first responders as well as some within the non-veteran communities.”.
Traumatic Brain Injuries, Employment, Housing, Suicides these along with mobility are some of the challenges facing our nation's post-9/11 veterans. Our donors will also be able to help fund advanced treatments for traumatic brain injured veterans, which we anticipate will include Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment at approved facilities around the country. To the extent we may be able to help disabled veterans also find good accessible and affordable housing, we will strive to connect veterans with such housing.
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.
