Executive SummaryThe Rehabilitative Engineering Society of North America expects to complete work in the next few weeks on a standard outlining electromagnetic compatibility requirements for powered wheelchairs and motorized scooters, according to RESNA members. A draft of the standard was discussed at an Aug. 18-19 meeting between society members, patient advocates, FDA officials, and other interested parties at FDA offices in Rockville, Maryland. The meeting also addressed FDA's recently announced requirement that wheelchair/scooter manufacturers must affix warning labels to their products explaining the possible dangers of electromagnetic interference ('The Gray Sheet" July 11, p. 21)
