Facilities Specializing in Services for Persons with Mobility Impairments

The 20% scoping applies to facilities or units that specialize in providing services to people with "mobility impairments,” which may include:

* conditions requiring the use or assistance of a brace, cane, crutch, prosthetic device, wheelchair, or powered mobility aid

* arthritic, neurological, or orthopedic conditions that severely limit one's ability to walk

* respiratory diseases and other conditions which may require the use of portable oxygen

* cardiac conditions that impose significant functional limitations

Examples include spinal cord injury treatment centers, prosthetic and orthotic retail establishments, and vocational rehabilitation centers for persons with mobility impairments. This provision does not apply to facilities that provide but do not specialize in these services, such as general rehabilitative counseling or physical therapy centers. In determining whether a facility is subject to this requirement, both the nature of the services or treatment provided and the population served should be considered.
