NMEDA: Protecting and Providing For the Disabled Consumer

February 9, 2012


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

You can find ANYTHING on the Internet, anything. Some stuff is great, others are junk on par with the snake oil of the 19th century. Mobility equipment is one of them. There’s a lot of stuff out there “guaranteed” and “certified,” but is it really? How do you know that the wheelchair or scooter or handicap van is truly a high-quality product that will provide years of comfort and function?

There’s really only one way to know for sure: Check with NMEDA. NMEDA, the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association, is a non-profit trade association. They don’t sell equipment, they help the consumer choose the best equipment. NMEDA maintains a list of high-quality, customer-friendly, authorized dealers in mobility equipment. All members are required by NMEDA to meet or exceed safety standards set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. So think of NMEDA as a kind of consumer education group.

Additionally, NMEDA also maintains the Quality Assurance Program (QAP). This program, recognized nationally for providing exceptional quality to consumers, connects customers with the highest quality and ethical manufacturers and dealers in the mobility business. The standards are stringent! No snake oil dealers here!

Purchasing mobility equipment takes careful consideration. There is no “one size fits all” product when it comes to disability vehicles and mobility equipment. Everyone is treated as an individual with the highest quality care. If you are looking for quality products, check out the NMEDA website and search for a dealer near you. Where is your closest dealer?

    That is what I like to see and hear about. A non profit that is looking out to help consumers! I love resources like this.

    I like the fact that they have the dealer locator right on their front page. If I ever needed a wheelchair accessible vehicle or know someone who does, this site would be wonderful.

    The site is very user friendly!
