Preliminary Regulatory Assessment

The Access Board and its contractor, Eastern Research Group, collected product data and unit costs for a broad sample of examination tables and weight scales, including products with accessible features.  The Access Board and Eastern Research Group did not evaluate the products for conformance with the proposed standards and do not endorse any of the products included in the sample.  The Access Board and Eastern Research Group used the Internet to collect the product data and unit costs.  Medical equipment suppliers typically list the manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) for the products on their web sites and sell the products at discounted prices.  The discounted prices for the same product can vary widely among medical equipment suppliers.  Health care providers purchase the products for less than the MSRP (i.e., actual price is less than MRSP).  The unit costs in the tables below are the MSRP, and are shown as a range of lower cost and higher cost products rounded to the nearest $50.
