Independence Corps' Mission

We changed our name to Independence Corps so our veterans and donors could more easily identify with our mission.  Helping to restore  injured American Veterans their INDEPENDENCE, freedom and dignity that comes with greater INDEPENDENT  MOBILITY - we provide  our nation's wounded heroes the most advanced mobility devices available.

We will continue to provide high-tech mobility devices, therapies and guidance to veterans severely injured in the service to our country.  

With case by case evaluation  and earmarked donations we hope to also from time to time be able to address the needs of injured and disabled first responders as well as some within the non-veteran communities. 

Suicide Intervention. Regardless of what's the correct statistic to quote, suicides and attempted suicides among our veteran population must be addressed. Independence Corps has seen that helping veterans regain independence can help with feelings of wellbeing, but we want to work to be part of the solution to reduce veteran suicides and so we have begun a Spartan Weekend initiative.

Today we are excited to announce that DEKA and Toyota have inked an agreement that will lead to the manufacture and sale of the next generation iBOT.

What's new and what's happening with the Ibot?

 WE ARE EXCITED TO REPORT THAT AS OF DECEMBER 2015 WE ARE NOW SUPPORTED BY NEWMAN'S OWN FOUNDATION.

While starting in 2016 we will be providing veterans with a greater variety of high tech mobility devices like the Track Chair, and the Levo, many of our visitors  associate us with The iBOT® Mobility System invented by DEKA Research. We are honored and proud of a very long association.  In 2013, after providing 23 new iBOTS to veterans, our veterans helped DEKA Research obtain FDA reclassification of the stair climbing wheelchair as a Class 2 Medical Device and we will continue tirelessly to try and help DEKA restart the manufacture of a new generation iBOT Mobility System.
