NMEDA – Helps the Disabled

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

Did you all know my husband is disabled? He was diagnosed with MS in January 2009. He has not worked since then. He walks with a cane and has bouts of fatigue and depression. I don’t know what the future holds for us, he may need a wheelchair or a special car, I just don’t know.

Have you ever heard of NMEDA? NMEDA is a non profit trade association that helps the disabled find quality dealers of wheelchairs,  and such. NMEDA does not sell anything, they  just promote safe driving and equipment for disabled people.

I know several people who have MS and no two people have the same symptoms. The same goes for every disabled person. Everyone is different. You have to be careful when buying things over the internet or second hand. NMEDA can help you find a qualified dealer in your area that can custom fit equipment to fit an individual need.

NMEDA also has  Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers.  The QAP is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. We have a quality assurance program at the surgery center where I work. It’s a systematic and documented approach to quality in order to satisfy customer consistency. It’s great that they have this!


Check out www.nmeda.org, enter you zip code and find a dealer near you. I did and am glad to know I have someone near us when we need them.

  1. Thanks for posting this, I also have MS at least I think I do, none of the tests showed anything, but I have always thought thats what it was. It started out as a stutter for me when I was 25, I was in the Army Reserves at the time, so I had good insurance (all the tests), and it has progressed. I just say my brain doesn't work right anymore, (my thinking is slow sometimes and other stuff). Its not so bad, Im not in pain too much, and there are people that have it alot worse then me. I dont really know what Im saying anymore, Im just talking to someone who can understand a little more. Thanks again.
