NMEDA Helps Disabled People Find Mobility Equipped Vehicles

This is a partnered post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you all heard about NMEDA before? I have heard of them before and my cousin who is disabled has used their services before to help find an accredited QAP dealer when he was looking for a wheelchair accessible vehicle. Well today, I am going to give you some information about NMEDA.

NMEDA stands for National Mobility Equipment Dealer Association and NMEDA first got it's start in the great state of Florida. In 1989, NMEDA opened up their membership and now you can find over 600 NMEDA accredited dealers in the USA and in Canada.

NMEDA is a non-profit association of mobility equipment dealers, manufacturers, driver rehabilitation specialists and other specialists/professionals who are dedicated and comitted to helping disabled people find vehicles that they can drive or be transported in. NMEDA is a nationally recognized and respected association.

The organization promotes and supports individual members who are engaged in the modification of transportation vehicles that are geared towards people who have disabilities. All members are required to adhere to the strict standards and guidelines of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and every year, these guidelines and standards are updated. This means that you will always find the most current safety standards!

The QAP (Quality Assurance Program) is a nationally recognized accreditation program for the mobility equipment industry. This wonderful program was developed to help promote quality, safety and reliabilty within the mobility equipment industry and is the ONLY program of it's type in this industry. A QAP designation enhances vehicle modification & mobility equipment installation in the highest standards that are currently available. This quality really counts and something important to look for when considering a mobility vehicle.

You can visit a NMEDA QAP (Quality Assurance Program) Dealer for mobility solutions and you can use the dealer locator which is directly on the NMEDA web site to find a dealer near you. You can grab additional information about NMEDA and the QAP program directly from their web site.

We all have a need to get from point A to point B and disabled people are no different. Just like us, they want to travel and see the world and NMEDA can help them find a dealer who specializes in mobility vehicles and mobility equipment.

If you know someone who is disable, please let them know about the great folks over at NMEDA. Thanks for reading my post today!
