Free Segways For Veterans with Disabilities

Veterans who are disabled, and served on active duty before or after September 11, 2001, may be able to receive a free Segway that is custom designed for their needs.

In order to qualify for a free Segway, a Veteran must have incurred an illness or injury resulting in permanent disability and difficulty walking as a result of one of the following:

– Armed Conflict
– Hazardous Service
– Conditions Simulating War
– Instrumentality of War
– Combat Operation
– Combat Zone

This program is sponsored by the Disability Rights Advocates for Technology, (DRAFT), which is made up of individuals with disabilities that refuse to be defined by their disability and have a passion for participating in life’s activities. They provide advocacy as well as education services as an advocate for the adoption of Universally Designed Technology Solutions. As part of their mission, they provide Segways for disabled Veterans at no charge.

To date, Segs4Vets has awarded more than 250 Segways to Veterans who were severely injured while serving our nation in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.
