National Mobility Awareness Month is dedicated to showing the world how people with disabilities can live active, mobile lifestyles.
The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association and our over 600 members are committed to bringing people living with disabilities the mobility solutions they need to live Life Moving Forward. Each year, we enlist the help of our extensive NMEDA Dealer network and our industry partners and spokespeople to celebrate National Mobility Awareness Month. Together, we reach out to communities across the United States and Canada to raise awareness of handicap vans, trucks and specialty vehicles, hand controls and steering aids, transfer seats and seating solutions, wheelchair tie downs and other adaptive mobility equipment available and give Local Heroes the chance to win their very own Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
