Disability Assistance

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NMEDA for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you have a loved one with disabilities, you might already be familiar with NMEDA, the National Mobility Equipment Dealer Association. But if you do and you are not familiar, let me be the one to introduce you.
NMEDA is a non-profit trade association of mobility equipment dealers, manufacturers, driver rehabilitation specialists and other professionals dedicated to expanding opportunities for those with disabilities to drive or transported. 
NMEDA was originally formed as an association of mobility equipment dealers in the state of Florida. In 1989 membership opened on a national level and the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association was established.  Membership has grown to more than 600 members with the bulk of the membership located in the United States and Canada. All members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and to follow the guidelines set by NMEDA. Every member agrees to follow these guidelines when they join the association. The guidelines, which are actually a living document providing detailed recommended practices on equipment installation and modifications, are updated yearly.

The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is a recognized accreditation program for the mobility equipment industry. The program was developed to promote quality, safety, and reliability within the industry. Some states now require a dealer’s participation in the QAP to perform work for the Vocational Rehabilitation Programs. The QAP is the only program of this nature developed for the mobility equipment industry. A QAP designation enhances vehicle modification and mobility equipment installation in a manner consistent with the highest guidelines available in the industry.

NMEDA is striving to unify and improve the mobility equipment industry and service to people with disabilities. Transportation is the key to freedom and those with disabilities need to feel they can live their lives with ease and convenience when it comes to transportation. And that is where NMEDA comes in!
