Mobility and Disability

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

When I hear the word mobility, what comes to my mind is movement. One that involves going from one place to another. Clearly, this is an easy thing to do for a regular person like me. A person with mobility impairment, however, may have difficulty with walking, standing, or even traveling about. We all know that in this day and age, it is hard to engage in activities that don't somehow involve some traveling about.This could be tough for people with mobility impairment. It's a good thing that there is a non-profit trade association as NMEDA. NMEDA is an acronym for The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association. It is an association of mobility equipment dealers, manufacturers and rehabilitation professionals dedicated to provide safe, reliable vehicles and modifications to enable people with disabilities to travel about safely.

No two people with a disability are the same. It is best to consult with your local NMEDA mobility dealer before you even consider buying the ideal vehicle or modifications for your special needs. Buying only from a NMEDA dealer assures you of quality purchase. To make things even better, NMEDA has a Quality Assurance Program (QAP), a nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. NMEDA dealers who participate in the QAP are held to extremely high standards of quality assurance for consumers. The public is then assured of the highest level of quality when purchasing vehicles or modifications for their specialized needs.

Caregivers have one of the toughest jobs in terms of taking care of their patients. They may even be required to take their patients wherever and whenever required like regular visits to the hospital or health care facilities. As such, they need to be able to transport their patients safely. Having the proper equipment can help a lot in assuring the patients' safety. It can also prevent injury to caregivers, esp. if they need to transport heavy and bulky wheelchairs or scooters.

Finding a local NMEDA dealer is quite simple and easy. Just check out their website, click on locate a dealer, and input your ZIP/Postal Code. You can even search by State/Province. So if you are in need of mobility assistance or know anyone who is, visit the NMEDA site today and find a dealer near you. A NMEDA dealer can greatly help persons with disabilities get back onto the road to independence.
