Have you read the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”, all 906 pages regarding medical diagnostic equipment?

The wake-up call for all business with products that do not meet these new requirements is now.  Attorneys throughout the country are looking for ‘deep pockets’ and they are honing their civil rights law skills as they file lawsuits for non-compliance in regards to accessibility requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and/or the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008.

ACCESS is a known leader in accessibility compliance with over 16 years of experience in this highly specialized field.

This is the health care bill that was just passed by Congress.  The U.S. Department of Justice was obviously getting complaints from the handicapped that the medical diagnostic equipment was not being designed to be accessible.  Accessibility compliance is required by the Civil Rights law of the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act of 2008 (PL110-325), which became effective on January 1, 2009, and as found in chapter 126, “equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities”.

Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) has been directed by Congress to develop accessibility standards for medical diagnostic equipment.
