Quality Assurance Program
The NMEDA Difference
As an advocate of mobility without limitations, NMEDA is committed to providing you with the ultimate in safe and reliable adaptive transportation through our Quality Assurance Program.
The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality. The program was developed to elevate the level of dealer performance to reliably meet consumers’ transportation needs in the safest manner possible. The Quality Assurance Program was developed to promote quality, safety and reliable transportation. All NMEDA Dealer Members must be in compliance with QAP to be a NMEDA member.
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.
Driving Independence for People with Disabilities
The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) is a non-profit trade association dedicated to expanding opportunities for people with disabilities to safely drive or be transported in vehicles modified with mobility equipment to fit their specific needs. All members work together to improve transportation options for people with disabilities.
Making Mobility Accessible
NMEDA was originally formed as an association of mobility equipment dealers in the state of Florida. In 1989, membership opened up to mobility dealers on a national scale and the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association was established. Our organization promotes and supports individual members engaged in the modification of quality transportation for people with disabilities. Today, we have grown to more than 600 members – including mobility equipment dealers, manufacturers, driver rehabilitation specialists and other mobility industry professionals – with the bulk of our network of mobility experts located in the United States and Canada.
Our ultimate mission is to unify and improve the mobility equipment industry and help people with disabilities lead happy, healthy and more mobile lifestyles through the use of quality wheelchair accessible vehicles.
