Healthcare Partners Join CHA in Hosting Webinar on Accessibility Standards for Medical Diagnostic Equipment

On Wednesday, October 26, CHA and other healthcare provider associations hosted an issue-based forum focused on a review of the U.S. Access Board's accessibility standards for medical diagnostic equipment (MDE).  At the forum, the participants heard from Bobby Stinnette, Accessibility Specialist at the U.S. Access Board, on design standards criteria for examination tables and chairs, weight scales, radiological and mammography equipment, and other diagnostic equipment that are accessible to people with disabilities.  Participants also reviewed standards for equipment that assists in transfer from mobility aids and addressed transfer surfaces, support rails, armrests, and other features.

The forum was held to promote awareness of a new Connecticut law, supported by CHA and passed in 2022 that seeks to make healthcare providers aware of the standards, and requires institutions, including hospitals, to take these MDE standards into consideration before purchasing various types of medical equipment (Section 73 of Public Act 22-58).

CHA partnered with LeadingAge CT, the Connecticut State Medical Society, the Connecticut Association of Health Care Facilities/Connecticut Center for Assisted Living, and the disability advocacy community in providing this forum to members and the public.  CHA recognizes the importance of this access issue and recommends anyone with an interest to watch the forum’s 60-minute recording, which can be found here.
