NMEDA abbreviation for the non profit National Mobility equipment dealer association. Their purpose is to educate consumers on buying these mobility equipments for disabled and senior citizens from authorized NMEDA dealers only.
Its important you stay away from purchasing these products from non – NMEDA dealers They advise people to stay away from internet or adapted wheelchairs because no 2 people disabled are the same. NMEDA has their own dealers, but also their own Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers. The QAP is the only nationally accredited program assuring a dealer has followed all safety and other procedures properly to be approved.
I had an aunt that died recently in a accident dealing with a mobility equipment chair, so I personally take safety and making sure a disabled person or senior citizen gets the proper chair for them and only from a authorized dealer. I would now only get it from a NMEDA approved dealer, I would never do it any other way after that experience.
If you or someone you know is having trouble getting around you should contact your NMEDA dealer to get a mobile device to get you around and help live your life with independence again. I checked my local zip code and their is a dealer nearby. I encourage my readers to go to the website and look up their zip code for a NMEDA dealer close to them.
