You and I know that it’s a gift to walk around and complete day to day tasks, something we all take for granted. However, there are people out there who can’t take a step and they are confined to a wheel chair their entire lives. While this makes me sad, I know most people who are confined to a wheel chair make the most of what they have, which is all the more reason why they should not be taken advantage of with lower quality products or even worse.
Wouldn’t it be great if everything you purchased had a quality seal on it? Put yourself in the shoes of someone who needs to purchase a modified vehicle and equipment. It can be nerve-wracking. Trying to go to a dealer to pick out a vehicle that you literally need to make your life easier. I am so passionate about this topic because my father was physically disabled in the later years of his life. I’m thankful for his service in the US Marine Corp., but I’m also thankful for the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association. The NMEDA works extremely hard to help those who have a disability.
Power of Mobility
It’s important for someone with a disability to be able to get where they are going and to regain their independence. The NMEDA has a Quality Assurance Program. This program is awesome because it ensures you get a personal accredited dealer. I love that NMEDA mobility equipment dealers offer 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. There are also a ton of advantages of working with an NMEDA accredited dealer. Here are some of the perks to look forward to: in-person evaluations, specialized training of equipment, 24-hour local emergency roadside services and so much more!
Quality Vehicles & Assurance
The bottom line is that NMEDA dealers offer quality vehicles, mobility equipment and outstanding consumer benefits for mobility challenged individuals, veterans, etc. And this program hits close to home because this program helped provide him with a motorized wheelchair in conjunction with the VA. He was a Marine veteran. Keep in mind that all NMEDA mobility equipment dealers are required to be QAP accredited. This makes sure the highest standards in mobility equipment installations. The NMEDA QAP program is a unique training program and is how NMEDA assures quality and safety to every one of their customers.
