This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.
A few months ago, we went to our hometown to visit my uncle who had been diagnosed and has been comatose for a month in the hospital. He has a colon cancer and we are thankful that this time he is slowly recovering from his disease. My aunt takes care of my uncle and their children also serves as their caregiver in helping my uncle for his needs. And since they live far away from the city, I advised my aunt to purchase a mobility equipment like a wheelchair vehicle from NMEDA so that it would be easier for my uncle to move around specially when they help him to get inside their vehicle.
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.
So, if you are also worried about your family and relatives that needs some mobility,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.
