As previously reported, the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) has published a proposed rule that would establish accessibility standards for medical diagnostic equipment, as mandated by the ACA. The proposed standards contain minimum technical criteria to ensure that medical diagnostic equipment, including examination tables, examination chairs, weight scales, and imaging equipment used by health care providers for diagnostic purposes are accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. The Access Board is organizing an advisory committee to advance its development of new standards for medical diagnostic equipment and seeks applications from interested parties, including medical equipment manufacturers and providers, to serve as committee members. The application deadline is April 27, 2012.
