Have you ever heard of NMEDA and the services their members provide? I hadn’t either until recently. The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) works to provide the best and most beneficial solutions for increased mobility. That basically means that they are the best source for wheelchair accessible vehicles and mobility equipment. As someone who does not struggle with a disability it is so easy for me to take my daily life for granted. I don’t know personally what it’s like to always be dependent upon someone or to be limited in daily tasks. However, since my husband does have Ankylosing Spondylitis I am familiar with what it’s like to have to live with something that can be debilitating. Simple things like going for walks, sitting in church, and taking trips have all been affected at some point by Daniel’s disease. So even though we don’t require a wheelchair or a wheelchair accessible vehicle, I can appreciate the absolute necessity of NMEDA.
Having a wheelchair accessible vehicle can create so many more opportunities and allow someone to take their independence back. The NMEDA starts with their quality assurance program which guarantees you a personal Accredited Dealer who will give an in-person evaluation, has special training of equipment, has 24-hour local emergency roadside services and much, much more! So no matter what your mobility challenge is, you are sure to receive the best attention you deserve. NMEDA offers wheelchair ramps, hand controls and steering aids, transfer seats and seating solutions, wheelchair securement and tie downs, scooter lifts and special acceleration and braking solutions for adaptive vehicles. If you need it, they’ve got it!
