When you are disabled, or when you are taking care of a disabled person, transportation can be a major headache. No two disabled people are alike and what works for one person will not necessarily work for another. Can you imagine the trying to buy an adaptive wheelchair vehicle when you really do not know exactly what will fit your needs? Buying adaptive wheelchair vehicles over the internet or from a catalog can cause even bigger problems if they are not what the disabled person needed! You need someone who can tell you exactly what will best work for you! That is where NMEDA comes in.
NMEDA is a non-profit trade association who educates consumers on buying products from NMEDA dealers. NMEDA does not sell anything! They are a non-profit association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. The NMEDA members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Safety Administration.
NMEDA has dealers and Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers. The dealers are members who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people. They offer "in-person" evaluations so you can be sure you are getting the right driving solution customized to your specific lifestyle and needs. The NMEDA is also there when you need additional training or product refinement. They are with you every step of the way and help you make more informed decisions. THE QAP is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. The QAP is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a documented and systematic approach to quality.
NMEDA dealers can help get the elderly or disabled back on the road to independence. There is no more need to depend on others when you could be doing things yourself! You can visit nmeda.org and find dealers in your area. I did some checking and there are several in mine! Why wait? Check out NMEDA.org and start working toward regaining your independence!
