About 56.7 million people in the U. S. have a disability. More than half (about 30.6 million) have mobility problems. Some have difficulty walking or climbing stairs. Others use a wheelchair, cane, crutches or walker to get around.

People with mobility problems face significant to severe challenges getting to work, shopping and visiting friends and family much less and participating in leisure time activities like bicycle riding, paddle boating, etc. The inability to carry out these daily activities often means –
- Deteriorating physical, mental and emotional health and function
- A severely limited ability to participate in their communities
- Poverty (because of their inability to get to and from work)
Mobility problems can result from any number of birth defects, diseases, conditions and injuries, some common and some rare. Causes may include fibromyalgia, degenerative joint disease, nervous system disorders, and herniated discs.
Our mobility device inventions help disabled people with limited mobility get exercise. Our mobility vehicles have motorized backup for those who have minimal human power. Being able to get exercise and improve mobility does a great deal of good for physical and mental health. Please help us manufacture and provide our mobility devices to those who need them by donating today.
