NMEDA is a non-profit association that works with people with disabilities to increase their opportunities to drive and/or be transported in vehicles modified with mobility equipment.
As a teenager, I had a neighbor that was caring for a young woman who was paralyzed. For a while they used a regular van and there was quite a strain in transporting this young woman. When they did get a van equipped to transport her in her wheelchair, which could later be converted for her to drive, everyone's lives were drastically improved. The van gave her the potential for independence as well as relieving a lot of strain for her caregiver.
Each vehicle should meet the need of each individual with a disability. A NMEDA dealer can assess the needs of each individual to make sure their vehicle is best equipped to meet their needs. Their Quality Assurance Program (QAP) seeks to satisfy customers consistently by having a systematic and documented approach to quality.
If you or someone you love could benefit from NMEDA and their services, visit their homepage and search in the dealers locator to see if there is a qualified dealer near you. I know of a dealership within 20 miles of my home...do you have one near you?
