Request for Comments on Accessible Medical Diagnostic Equipment

May 25, 2022

The U.S. Access Board has an open comment period through May 27, 2022 about the appropriate low-height of medical diagnostic equipment with transfer surfaces, including examination tables and chairs and diagnostic imaging medical equipment with tables, so that the equipment can be adjusted to work for the biggest range of users. 

The Board continues to look for information on low transfer heights for adjustable medical diagnostic equipment products that are currently sold and any changes in their design and construction that may have happened since the Board put out its medical diagnostic equipment accessibility standards.

For more information, see "Request for Input on Accessible Medical Diagnostic Equipment".
