National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA)
When selecting mobility equipment installers, shop around and inquire about their qualifications, capabilities, experience, warranty and service practices. Ask for references. Ask if they are members of the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) and if they are QAP-certified. NMEDA is committed to providing automotive adaptive equipment solutions for people with disabilities. In this effort, NMEDA has implemented the Quality Assurance Program (QAP), a nationally recognized accreditation program for mobility equipment dealers.
Mobility SVM manufactures a full size General Motors truck that is wheelchair accessible from either the driver or passenger's side. This allows the driver or passenger to remain in their wheelchair while using the vehicle. This concept has given many wheelchair bound drivers the opportunity to have a vehicle that better suits their needs versus the traditional mini-van. Learn more.
