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

My Grandmother is in a wheelchair. Which sometimes makes it difficult for her to get around to doctor appointments, the store and just out and about in general.  We would a vehicle equipped to just roll the wheelchair in, strap it down and go. We would love to be able to get her out more. Transportation is the key to freedom and NMEDA help with that!

NMEDA stands for National Mobility Equipment Dealer Association. They are a non-profit trade association of mobility equipment dealers, manufacturers, driver rehabilitation specialists and other professionals dedicated to expanding opportunities for people with disabilities to drive or be transported in vehicles modified with mobility equipment. All members work together to improve transportation options of people with disabilities.

The organization promotes and supports individual members engaged in the modification of quality transportation for people with disabilities. Membership has grown to more than 600 members with the bulk of the membership located in the United States and Canada. All members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and to follow the guidelines set by NMEDA.

Where do we start?

I know very little about what is out there to help people with disabilities to help be transported.  But using the visit a NMEDA QAP (Quality Assurance Program) Dealer for mobility solutions locator, I can find dealerships in my area that can help with my Grandmother’s needs.

What is QAP?

Quality Assurance Program, or QAP, is a recognized accreditation program for the mobility equipment industry. The program was developed to promote quality, safety, and reliability within the industry.

All NMEDA QAP dealers offer 24 hour local emergency assistance, on-site sales and support, and they offer in-person individual evaluations.

If you buy a vehicle online on through a non NMEDA dealer, chances are you probably will not receive the same service.

We went through a HUGE learning process when my sister-in-law had a major accident 2 1/2 years ago and became a paraplegic. The link you shared will be useful to someone for sure! We are so thankful for her wheelchairs, home equipment, and her van. She is driving again and getting more independent every day!
