If you are disabled or elderly, or if you are the caregiver for an elderly or disabled person, than you know transportation can always be a major challenge to your day. Transportation to doctor appointments, shopping, and even social events can be something very stressful to everyone in involved. Now you can visit a local NMEDA company and check out the vans, and accessories to make any car or van that can help make anyone independent again. If you put your zip code in the business finder box you will see where the closest one is to you. When I put my zip code in the nearest NMEDA dealer was 47 miles away, not bad considering the very rural area I live in.
So what exactly is NMEDA? NMEDA which stands for, National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association, is a non trade association that will help you find a qualified mobility expert near you. NMEDA itself does not sell anything, their job is to aid you in finding a mobility expert that can help you become independent again. Because everyone's disability is different, no one product will work for everyone. NMEDA dealers will aid you in figuring out what you, and your vehicle need to be adapted to fit your mobility needs. It could be a lift for a wheelchair, special steering wheel adaptations, special foot and brake pedals, and many more. No one should feel like they have been robbed of their independence. NMEDA will help you through the whole process including answering your questions, evaluating your needs, and fitting you with the adaptations needed, and re-evaluation to be sure they are working for you. NMEDA has to follow the same strict driving standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
You probably have seen where you can purchase wheelchair vans, or adapted vehicles, over the internet. This can be dangerous, and not meet your needs at all, yet take your money. Click the link to visit the NMEDA website, browse around, type in your zip code, and then visit the closest NMEDA dealer to you, and start being independent again.
