Come on, join us and help restore independence and dignity to disabled veterans and first responders that comes with greater mobility.
We thank Dean Kamen, & DEKA Research for reinventing the iBOT and putting their new iBOT into production through Mobius Mobility http://mobiusmobility.com/.
You can still be part of the solution, helping us restore a veteran or first responder’s Independence. We gave Army Veteran Daniel Miller who lost both lower legs in 2009 in Iraq his brand new iBOT and Daniel and Ed Beesley threw out the first pitch at the June 12 Veterans and Celebrity Baseball games at Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Field. Please make a donation today.
If you are a civilian, contact firstname.lastname@example.org about getting a new iBOT.
If you are a veteran or injured first responder, contact email@example.com about being considered by Independence Corps for a new iBOT.

Independence Corps, in concert with one of our donors, Warfighter Hemp, a largely veteran owned and operated vendor of CBD products, tasked its Hemp farm to produce CDC compliant Hand Sanitizers. Independence Corps is accepting donations earmarked exclusively by donors to buy and distribute to fire, police departments and medical facilities in a number of U.S. Cities to help protect these first responders on the front line of this war with Covid-19.

We are sad to report the tragic early death of Col. Kristine Henderson, M.D., a 2020 IBOT recipient. Dr. Henderson was trained at the Uniformed Services University medical school, later becoming an Air Force physician. Following 9/11, Dr. Henderson volunteered and trained as a Critical Care Air Transport Team physician and in 2003 deployed in Operation Enduring Freedom to Iraq.
When Dr. Henderson returned from Iraq, she became chief of the Critical Care Air Transport Team at Patrick AFB in FL. Unfortunately, she was then diagnosed with multiple sclerosis forcing her to retire from her career as an AF physician.
Below is a short video Dr. Henderson shared with us when she was enjoying her new iBOT.

Matt’s wife just said, “This morning he asked to walk with me and promised to keep me safe. Ibot is changing our lives!”

Back from serving in a war zone, he broke his neck in three places and suffered quadriplegic spinal injuries. Now, this veteran shows other vets that with determination there is a real worthwhile life after catastrophic injuries. He’s paying it forward and Independence Corps was proud to provide him his Track Chair.
