NMEDA Helps the "Immobile" Back in Mobility

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Before my grandmother died of colon cancer, she had to endure the fact that she needed to use a wheelchair for more than a year. I was one of her "caregivers" and I know how difficult it was for her to move around, especially when she needed to get in the car. If we had known about NMEDA that difficulty could have been alleviated.

NMEDA is a non-profit association of mobility dealers, manufacturers and rehabilitation professionals that aims to provide safe, reliable vehicles and modifications in order to improve accessibility for all people.

Furthermore, NMEDA or National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association offers education to consumers to help them make an informed decision when they purchase products from a NMEDA qualified dealer.

The group does not sell anything; rather they only promote safe driving and pieces of equipment that could assist disabled people. Its members are mandated to follow safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It is their dealers/members that sell handicap vans and vehicle modification for disabled individuals.

NMEDA has both dealers and Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers. QAP is a recognized accreditation program that tackles Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It adheres to the principle that the only way to satisfy customer consistently is to have a systematic and documented approach to quality.

You may visit NMEDA.org to help you find a NMEDA dealer, a qualified dealer that can help your disabled family member to get back on the road of independence.
