Persons with disabilities shared equal rights with the normal one. However, this can only be realized if they are provided well with the right equipment that they need. In choosing equipment like wheel chairs, it can be available anywhere. It can even be purchased via online. However, what we usually see on the internet is the common design which won't really satisfy the needs of the customers. Some countries put high regards to these kinds of people. In fact they have organized special associations that advocate equal rights for physically handicapped and the like individuals.
NMEDA(National Mobility Equipment Association) is an association that supports this cause. NMEDA is a trade association. They do not sell anything but they educate consumers on buying products from their qualified dealer (and member at the same time.) They promote safety driving and equipment for disabled person. In view of this, all their members adhered to the safety standards of the National highway Traffic Safety Administration. With the training and expertise of all NMEDA qualified members, they are reliable when it comes to appropriate handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people. They have the capability of customizing equipments based on the specific needs of their customers. NMEDA members are the qualified dealers on this kind of products. NMEDA dealer can help the elderly or disabled get back onto the road of independence. What is more advantage to them is that they prefer face to face transaction than via online. Visit www.nmeda.org and hit the dealers’ locator and type in your ZIP code and see if there is a qualified dealer near you.
Aside from this qualified equipment dealers, NMEDA also has Quality Assurance Program (QAP Dealers. QAP is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It is created based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality which is very much true. With QAP safety of all their customers is really ensured.
