Did you know that there are no two people with a disability which are exactly the same? That is why sometimes standard wheelchairs does not suit some disabled persons and even if they have already have one, they still can't move that comfortably. Just like what my grandfather is now experiencing. He is already old and have hard time walking because of his weight. So we bought him a standard wheelchair so he can go to any place in the house freely and not be stagnant on his rocking chair but still he does not use it because it is too big for him and he is uncomfortable with it.
There is this company that answers to the needs of every disabled person and that is NMEDA. NMEDA is a non-profit trade association that educates and promotes safe equipment and driving for persons with disabilities. They do not sell anything but leads you to a NMEDA qualified dealer to assist and give the disabled person the best solution for their mobility problems.
These dealers are the ones selling handicap vans and vehicle modification for disabled people. You can assure that they are best at this because they must adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. What they actually do is analyze your personality, lifestyle and needs and give the best mobility solution.
Aside from the Dealers, NMEDA also have a Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers. The difference with this one is that they are nationally recognized and accepted accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. What they did here is to elevate the level of performance in dealers to reliably meet consumer's mobility needs because this program teaches that; in order to satisfy customers always, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to every client.
If you are interested you might want to check their website, nmeda.org. They also have their a dealer locator so you would know if there is close qualifed dealer in your area. I have check it and is now already contacting them to assist my grandfather and help him move independently without the help of others.
NMEDA dealer can surely help the elderly or disabled get back onto the road of independence.
