Rules in Development

The Department of Justice issued an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Equipment and Furniture;  the Department is considering, among other issues, whether to update its ADA regulations to add more specific requirements for medical equipment such as accessible exam tables, dental chairs, radiological diagnostic equipment, scales, and rehabilitation equipment.

Related to these considerations, the U.S. Access Board is developing access standards for medical diagnostic equipment  and has issued Proposed Accessibility Standards for Medical Diagnostic Equipment.
