We are getting some questions on medical diagnostic equipment accessibility.

The answer is no, not all medical diagnostic equipment is required to be accessible, in the opinion of ACCESS.  There are extenuating conditions where it is not possible for a specific piece of equipment to be accessible, but you want that opinion to come from ACCESS.  In the majority of situations when the ACCESS audit finds the equipment not accessible, the items in the audit will be addressed one at a time.  Solutions are always a team effort, with ACCESS directly involved.  ACCESS likes to think that after 16 years of specializing in accessibility compliance we have seen everything at least once.

The real challenge is to stay ahead of the “civil rights” lawyers, who are filing more ADA non-compliance lawsuits each year.
