No two people with disabilities are exactly the same. Buying a standardized wheelchair for long term use isn’t a wise money investment. The purpose of a wheelchair is to provide mobility, as much independence as possible, and an enhanced quality of a life for people with physical limitations, so buying a wheelchair best able to meet their specific needs just makes good, common sense.
Every dealer in every National Mobility Equipment dealership provides personal, onsite consultations. They know mobility is a priority concern and seek to keep their clients as mobile as possible while still insuring their safety. NMEDA also provides training and ongoing assistance after the purchase of a personal mobility equipment or devises. There is no way that purchasing a wheelchair online or from some place like eBay is going to supply the support and training necessary for safety.
NMEDA has a Quality Assurance Program that is the only accredited, nationally recognized program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. They have a systematized and documented approach which helps them insurance and maintain highly safe, effective and efficient products, support and services are provided for every customer.
I visited the NMEDA website and plugged in my zip code to find my nearest NMEDA dealership. It is in Everett, Washington, just 58 miles away. My sister has one within 18 miles of her house. How close is your nearest NMEDA dealership?
