NMEDA is a non-profit trade association; they educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer.
Please remember that NMEDA DOES NOT SELL ANYTHING! NMEDA is the only association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. They are non-profit and their members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. NMEDA dealers (members) are the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people.
No two people with a disability are exactly the same. We should beware of adapted wheelchair vehicles sold over the Internet or through catalogs. Thankfully with NMEDA, you receive a personalized “in-person” evaluation. After this evaluation, you can be sure you are getting the right driving solution customized to your specific lifestyle and needs. If you need additional training or product refinements, your NMEDA dealer is there to help you.
NMEDA has Dealers AND Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers.
The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is the ONLY nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality.
It can be really tough as a caregiver and an NMEDA qualified dealer could assist in making decisions as easy as possible.
A NMEDA dealer can help the elderly or disabled get back onto the road of independence. After watching many loved ones go through rough times, independence is KEY to your sanity!!
