Mission Statement

Introducing a new business model for mobility equipment - one that is community-based, open-source, and inclusive of mutual aid programs. Our aim is to provide individualized solutions that are easily maintained and repaired. With a team of experts in disability issues, mechanical engineering, advanced welding techniques, design, and software, we are developing a modernized, fully customizable, and modular power wheelchair design that will meet the needs of people in urban, suburban, and rural lifestyles alike. By embracing open-source designs and mutual aid programs, we pave the way for quality and accessible mobility equipment that is built with the individual user in mind. Our first project is currently underway, with a team of remote experts who are testing and disseminating concepts and technologies to produce mobility technology designs. We are committed to providing ever-ready information resources on building, maintaining, and repairing the equipment. Once designs are finalized and parts sourcing secured, we will identify individuals in need of the equipment and build teams around them to customize the equipment to their specific needs. We will work with existing institutions such as universities and local organizations to build these teams around users of the equipment. This way, users will have a network of more local and timely resources for repairs or future modifications. As we increase availability, we will seek manufacturers to lease designs for proliferation. While they will be allowed to profit, the lease will require the donation of equipment directed by The Mobility Independence Foundation Inc. Others may choose to follow a not-for-profit model where all profits are invested in the business's stated goals. We will negotiate their contracts as necessary to proliferate the user-centric designs we create. Our ultimate goal is to create a self-sustaining model for meeting specialized needs around the world. We will seek those looking to solve similar mobility equipment issues and offer them an avenue similar to our projects. With your support, you can join us in becoming part of the solution and the movement towards accessible and inclusive mobility equipment.

About This Cause

The Mobility Independence Foundation is a non-profit technology foundation dedicated to producing and distributing open-source accessibility technology to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities. We are committed to creating a more inclusive and equitable society by providing accessible, open-source designs and products that meet the diverse needs of users with limited mobility. Our mission is centered on developing innovative open-source accessibility technology, including product designs and components that are better suited to the needs of people with disabilities than what is currently available in the market. By making these designs available to all, we hope to stimulate greater accessibility for those with mobility independence concerns. Through this approach, we strive to create a more inclusive society where everyone can achieve their fullest potential. Everyone deserves the opportunity for a purpose driven life. At the Mobility Independence Foundation, we believe that one of the key challenges facing people with limited mobility is the lack of reliable and durable mobility equipment. To address this challenge, we have developed a unique perspective on mobility technology based on input from individuals who have experienced subpar wheelchairs or other mobility equipment and long systemic delays for repair. Our CEO, with over 25 years of experience as a disabilities advocate, spearheads our efforts to produce innovative open-source technology. He has used his extensive network to identify a discontinued power wheelchair that continues to be in high demand among active members of the disability community. We will improve upon this equipment and create a modular design that can be customized to individual situations, needs, and goals. Our wheelchair will handle any terrain, whether on or off-road, while still being agile enough to maneuver around tight spaces indoors. Our focus on detail and dedication to making this product a reality has allowed us to create a game-changing business model that the disability community has been waiting for. We are confident that our nonprofit partners who provide mobility solutions to their clients, as well as those who license our designs, will see the tremendous value in our designs. Our attention to detail and dedication to making this product a reality will enable us to create and distribute superior, easily repaired products that significantly enhance the lives of those with mobility independence concerns. At the Mobility Independence Foundation, we are committed to fostering a more equitable and inclusive society through the distribution of open-source designs and products. We believe that our mission can create a positive impact on the lives of individuals with disabilities, and we will continue to develop innovative, accessible technology that meets their needs. Join us in our mission to create a world where everyone has access to quality mobility technology.
