If someone in your life is just beginning to require assistance to be mobile and independent, then you know the stress and worry that comes with finding the most reliable products at the best price. Thankfully, NMEDA is there to help, educate and assist you and your loved ones in this area.
They do not sell products, they promote safe driving and equipment for disabled people. Their members (or dealers) are required to directly follow to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. They are all trained to match a person with the exact chair or machine to meet their needs the best. NMEDA dealers understand that disabilities affect every single person in a different way. Please beware of buying vehicles online or through catalogs, since it might not meet the needs in the best possible way.
In addition to dealers, NMEDA has Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers. The QAP is "the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry." As such, they have a documented and systematic approach to quality, you can rest assured that you are receiving the best, most informed care in their power.
So if you are someone you know needs assistance to move around independently be sure to go online and find an NMEDA dealer near you. There is nothing like the peace an in-person evaluation can give.
There are dealers all over the United States – the closest to me is a mere 45 minutes away! Go online and search for the closest one to you and let me know how close you are, I'd love to hear!
