Performance Mobility - NMEDA Member Dealer
The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) is a non-profit trade association of driver rehabilitation specialists, mobility equipment dealers, and other professionals. All of these people are dedicated to broadening the opportunities for people with disabilities through driving or being transported in vehicles modified with mobility equipment. All members work together to improve transportation options of people with disabilities. NMEDA is striving to unify and improve the mobility equipment industry and service to people with disabilities. Transportation is the key to freedom, and Performance Mobility is proud to work with NMEDA towards keys to quality disability transportation.
NMEDA was formed originally as an association of mobility equipment dealers in the state of Florida. In 1989 membership opened on a national level and the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association was established. The organization promotes and supports individual members engaged in the modification of quality transportation for people with disabilities. Membership has grown from 15 to more than 600 members with the bulk of the membership located in the United States and Canada.
NMEDA members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and to follow the NMEDA Guidelines. NMEDA members update the Guidelines, a living document providing detailed recommended practices on equipment installation and modifications, yearly. Every NMEDA member agrees to follow these Guidelines when they join the association.

The Quality Assurance Program
(QAP) is a recognized accreditation program for the mobility equipment industry. The program was developed to promote quality, safety, and reliability within the industry. Some states now require a dealer's participation in the QAP to perform work for the Vocational Rehabilitation Programs. The QAP is the only program of this nature developed for the mobility equipment industry. A QAP designation for Performance Mobility enhances vehicle modification and mobility equipment installation in a manner consistent with the highest guidelines available in the industry.
