The NMEDA Difference
NMEDA promotes awareness of adaptive transportation solutions available to persons with disabilities, their families and their caregivers. Through the use of mobility equipment, Our members are able to transform the lives of those living with disabilities and grant each of their clients added independence and the ability to get behind the wheel of their own wheelchair accessible vehicle.
Ensuring Reliability and Your Safety
Whether you’re a person with a disability, a dedicated caregiver or an able-bodied family member, safety is a universal concern and one of the main benefits of owning a vehicle designed for adaptive use. With adaptive equipment specifically designed to facilitate transportation for those with physical limitations, a wheelchair accessible van, truck or car can provide the added safety you need to feel confident and secure on the road.
How Can an Adaptive Vehicle Change Your Life?
As more capable technologies and new advances in mobility equipment are made each day, wheelchair accessible vehicles have become more powerful than ever before. These specialized vehicle solutions have changed the lives of countless persons with disabilities and alleviated many everyday challenges for caregivers.
"Before purchasing our wheelchair accessible van, helping my mother travel to her many doctors’ appointments was difficult. We had to help her transfer from her wheelchair into a car seat, then stow her wheelchair in a cramped sedan, only to repeat the process all over again once we reached our destination and then home again. Our wheelchair van has changed everything! Now she’s able to get in and out of the van all on her own, without needing to transfer. She no longer has to stay home while the rest of us are out and about, and can join us on fun trips. Having this handicap van has not only helped us be able to transport my mother without having to worry about her safety, but it’s also given her the independence she needs to feel like herself again. Thank you, NMEDA for putting us in touch with a NMEDA dealer, they were great to work with and really cared about finding the best solution for my mom!"Mary Ellen Stewart
