Abstract: 

RESNA’s Assistive Technology Standards Board and individual RESNA Standards Committees produce performance standards across a wide range of Assistive Technology devices. These standards are used by many stakeholders, including consumers, policymakers, and third-party payers. Each year, new standards are introduced, as well as significant revisions to existing standards. This year, the ATSB will highlight standards in the areas of Adaptive Sports Equipment, Wheelchairs, Cognitive Accessibility, Inclusive Fitness, and a new proposed committee on Air Travel.
