Your vehicle is one of the biggest investments you make in your life. In order to protect your investment and to have a safe and reliable vehicle, consumers with disabilities should look for dealers who carry the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association NMEDA Quality Assurance Program designation. NMEDA is a non-profit trade association educating consumers on buying mobility products from a NMEDA qualified dealers. Dealers are required to adhere to the high safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. No two people with a disability are exactly the same so the NMEDA recommends you to be aware of adapted wheelchairs vehicles sold over the internet or through catalogs. A certified NMEDA dealer can help assist you in selecting the right modification for your needs and supplying you a quality product that is safe. The Quality Assurance Program is a nationally recognized accreditation program for the mobility equipment industry. The program was developed to promote quality, safety, and reliability within the mobility industry. If you, a loved one or a senior you know of is suffering with a disability, locating a NMEDA authorized dealer can help get back onto the road to independence. Please be sure to go to nmeda.com, hit the dealers locator and type in your ZIP code to see if there is a qualified dealer near you. I'm encouraging those who read this to do the same and leave a comment letting me know their closest qualified dealer.
