NMEDA is a non-profit trade association that aims to help consumers avail of safe, reliable and specially modified vehicles for better accessibility for people with special needs. Consumers are encouraged to buy from a NMEDA qualified dealer in order to benefit from on-site evaluation necessary to custom fit vehicles for special needs. This personalized approach is important because no two people with disability have exactly the same needs.
There are available adapted wheelchair vehicles in the market but they may not cater to specific needs. Take advantage of “in-person” evaluation to make sure you get the best driving solution patterned to your particular lifestyle and needs. NMEDA is also a dependable resource for additional training as well as production modifications and refinements.
Purchasing from a NMEDA qualified dealer simplifies things because your vehicle will be custom fitted to answer to your needs. Take note that NMEDA has Dealers AND Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers. The Dealer handles vehicle sales. QAP happens to be the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. The goal of the program is to increase the level of dealer performance to effectively meet consumers’ transportation needs through safe measures.
My husband’s grandmother is turning 90 years old soon. She has a wheel chair but she can still manage to stand on her own and walk very short distances. It’s a little difficult for her to ride cars. Someone should be inside the car to assist her as she goes in and another one outside to guide her. NMEDA qualified dealer can help transport hubby’s grandmother with ease. In fact, a NMEDA dealer can help both the elderly and disabled to live an independent life.
My husband’s grandmother used to live in Maryland. I used the dealer’s locator on the website and typed in her ZIP code. It was a quick search and I got a list of dealers near her area.
Give it a try and see if there’s a qualified dealer near you. Let me know when you do.
