Just Hop up! Access to medical equipment - where are we?

Tuesday, August 16, 2005

"I know I can get my wheelchair through that door, but I don't know how I going to get my body into that machine!" Hear about: new data from the RERC on Accessible Medical Instrumentation national consumer needs assessment survey on medical equipment; strategies for getting accessible medical equipment into offices of health providers, existing resources for accessible equipment (exam tables, chairs, scales, mammography); using tools to communicate with providers about your accessible equipment needs; and the project's next steps - designing new equipment, effecting change within the medical equipment and health care industry and health care public policy.
