There are just somethings you never think about. Things we can take for granted every single day. It's something we don't have to deal with but others do and I'd thought I'd shed some light on a subject. How do people get back on the road after facing a debilitating ordeal? Where can you find the information you'd need if you're Handicapped? NMEDA is a non-profit trade association; they educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer.
NMEDA does not sell anything but is the association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. T their members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. When buying adapted wheelchair vehicles sold over the Internet or catalogs the buyer should use caution because no two people with a disability are exactly the same.
To help NMEDA has Dealers and Quality Assurance Program (QAP) Dealers all over the country ready to assist those who are elderly or disabled into getting back onto the road of independence.
Dealers - members who simply sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled individuals.
QAP Dealers - Dealers who have earned the NMEDA QAP dealer distinction have undergone a lengthy, intensive process. Any wheelchair van dealership involved in this program can provide you with a higher standard of service and assurance. *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.
After a personalized “in-person” 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.
