Celebrate National Mobility Awareness Month

With over 18 million people living with mobility issues in just the U.S. and Canada alone, our mission each year is to shed light on the matter and celebrate the meaning of an active and mobile lifestyle. We’re marking our 8th annual National Mobility Awareness Month by educating seniors, veterans, caregivers and disabled individuals on the many wheelchair accessible vehicles and adaptive mobility equipment options available. Together, we can help draw inspiration into reality and keep life moving forward for a stronger future.

About National Mobility Awareness Month

Learn about the annual celebration that promotes an active and mobile lifestyle for those with disabilities.

Every year, mobility equipment dealers, manufacturers and driver rehabilitation specialists across the nation come together to raise awareness on the expanding opportunities available for people with disabilities through local events.

This year, National Mobility Awareness Month falls during unprecedented times. Our top priority is the health and safety of our members, caregivers and customers, so we’re commemorating a little differently. Instead of our usual events, participants will have a chance to chat with experts and learn about products through virtual open houses, webinars and more. We believe the only way to move forward is together, even if it’s virtually.


COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT

Drawing Inspiration into Reality

Behind every mobility solution is a story of perseverance and triumph. Our online community harbors strength and manifests it into inspiration for those looking to transform their life through adaptive equipment. We invite you to share your story using #NMAM2020 and inspire others to discover the possibilities through accessible transportation.
