Medical Devices & Right to Repair
Why Should You Care About Repair?
States across the nation have introduced bills that aim to give consumers more options on how they repair the products they own. Known as “right to repair,” these bills would require manufacturers to provide device instructions as well as parts and tools to independent repair shops and consumers. While this may work for some farming equipment and personal consumer devices, extending right to repair to medical devices could have severe consequences on individuals health and wellbeing. These are complex, intricate machines that require expert training and federal oversight to conduct repairs.
