When you are a wheelchair user the whole process of buying a new wheelchair access car or wheelchair access van can be quite daunting. Obviously your choice is limited to the number of wheelchair accessible vehicles on the market and of course there are additional factors you'll need to consider depending on your individual circumstances.
You gonna believe this : there is a non-profit trade association called NMEDA which educates consumers on purchasing products from NMEDA qualified dealers. They don’t sell anything but what they do is promote safe driving and equipment for people with disabilities. NMEDA stands for National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association.
NMEDA has both Dealers AND Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers under its turf. 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.
With NMEDA, you will find an overall review of many of the automotive transportation solutions available to people with a mobility challenge or to caregivers who need assistance to help transport someone with a disability. It will also be helpful to individuals recommending automotive mobility equipment and services.
If you know anyone who might be in need of the assistance of NMEDA dealers, just visit nmeda.org and on the homepage, click on dealers’ locator and enter your zip code. You’ll immediately get a list of NMEDA qualified dealers near you.
