Dealing with Mobility Problems

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

I have cousins living in Memphis. Like me, they are getting on in years, so could well have mobility problems looming. I wonder if they know about NMEDA, the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association.

This is a not-for-profit organisation of members who work together to enhance the lives of people with disabilities with equipment to help them get around. Members can be mobility equipment dealers, driver rehabilitation specialists or others whose work finds and provides better transport solutions for those with impaired mobility. The members have to follow the NMEDA guidelines that detail recommended practices on equipment installation and modification, and are updated every year.

This national association developed in 1989 from an earlier one limited to Florida. It now has more than 600 members spread across the US and even over the border in Canada.

The laudable raison d’etre of NMEDA is the belief that transportation is the key to freedom. I must say I heartily agree as I rest my creaking leg joints. And I guess if you live in North America and need mobility solutions for yourself or a loved one, it would be sensible to choose a dealer that is a member.

I’m off to write to my cousins to let them know I found a dealer member on Summer Avenue in Memphis. You can find one near you if you visit the NMEDA website, click on locate a dealer and type in your zip code.
