Panel 1: Access and Mobility for All: An Interagency Mission

OPDMD (Other Power Driven Mobility Devices)

For many Americans with mobility disabilities new and emerging technologies have provided lower cost alternatives to traditional mobility devices. These OPDMDs' such as a Segway PT, are beneficial to those who injuries or illness prevent them from being able to sit for long periods of time.

 

While there has been guidance from the Department of Justice issued supporting the use of such devices, there continues to be instances of Denial of Access in Title II and Title III entities. What steps are the Department of Transportation taking to ensure fair and equal access for OPDMDs' and future emerging technologies? And what considerations are in place or being implemented in reporting Denial of Access?
