NMEDA: Disabled People Driving Safely; Elders Hitting the Road Merrily

August 9, 2010

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

One of the items listed on my to-do list this year is to learn how to drive. I am impressed whenever I see women driving and battling traffic in the major roads of the Metro. I would like to think that only men would be the kings of the road. What’s more impressive are the disabled people driving. Thank you to NMEDA.

NMEDA is an Association of Mobility Dealers, Manufacturers and Rehabilitation Professionals that advocates providing safe, reliable vehicles and modifications to enhance accessibility for all people. Their members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. NMEDA dealers (members) are the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people. What is good about the service is that they do personalized “in-person” evaluation to ensure that disabled customers get the right driving solution specific to their needs.

Aside from the typical Dealers, NMEDA also has the Quality Assurance Program (QAP) Dealers. The program 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.

NMEDA is not just helpful to the disabled and elderly, but more importantly a big help to caregivers. Imagine how hard it is assist and support disabled and elders (both physically and morally), and NMEDA Qualified Dealers can surely assist and provide support and needs which are both beneficial to the patient and caregiver.

Who needs a wheelchair and breaks? Disabled and elders can get back to the road and live the free lives like of a normal person, with even more confidence.

I checked the site and located the nearest dealer in my US address.
