NMEDA is a non-profit trade association; they educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer. NMEDA does not sell anything: NMEDA is the only association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. They are non-profit and their members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. NMEDA dealers are the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people.
NMEDA requires a in-person evaluation, that way you can be sure you are getting the right driving solution customized to your specific lifestyle and needs. If you need additional training or product refinements, your NMEDA dealer is there to help you.
Also, in addition NMEDA has Dealers AND Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers. 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. Another great thing is that QAP is the only program of its kind and it offers buyers additional advantages such as 24-hour emergency service if you purchase your adapted equipment from a NMEDA QAP dealer.
Caregivers can be anyone a spouse, parent, sibling, grandparents, and aunts or uncles. With this transporting can sometimes be very difficult on both of them. NMEDA helps family's or caregivers by making transporting easier by simply modifying a vehicle for you. This will in return help both parties getting the disabled to the store, doctors, family reunions what ever it may be.
Along with modifying a vehicle for a person you may be taking care of, it also helps give independence back it a disabled or even a elderly person. NMEDA can modify the vehicle to best fit what you need help with.
You can also find a NMEDA dealer near you with their simple little Locate A Dealer box here. I was able to find one in my area 35 miles away which where I live that is really good. This is great for if the day would ever come and you may need more information on this and be able to talk in person as well.
