An Advocacy to Help the Handicapped
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Whenever I stroll at the mall or out of the street, I can’t help but notice how some places are inaccessible for the handicapped. I could just imagine how depressing it is for the part of the elderly or disabled to navigate the road. It’s even more frustrating for the caregiver if they can’t help address the situation.
Good thing there is NMEDA or National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association whose advocacy is to provide safe, reliable vehicles and modifications to enhance accessibility for all people. It is a non-profit trade association of Mobility Dealers, Manufacturers and Rehabilitation Professionals.
NMEDA is a mere association and doesn’t sell anything. It’s members are qualified dealers who provides technology for the elderly or disabled to get back onto the road of independence. This organization promotes vehicle and equipment safety. Members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
NMEDA qualified dealers sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people. They also gives trainings and product refinements. Be sure to get their personalized evaluation as guarantee that the product you are getting is customized according to your specific needs. Most vehicles are fully equipped with safety measures, a handicapped can drive as safe as any other person.
Then there is 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.
Please be sure to go to nmeda.org and on the homepage, hit the dealers locator and type in your ZIP code and see if there is a qualified dealer near you. You can leave a comment here if you can’t find one near your area.
