Meeting and Exceeding High Standards for your Peace of Mind.
The testing requirements accepted by the FDA have been developed by the American National Standards Institute/Rehabilitation Engineering & Assistive Technology Society of North America (ANSI/RESNA).
Our tests are conducted in accordance with the requirements of the ANSI/RESNA Test Standards and complement an additional strict testing regiment developed by Pride's Research & Development Team.
All products have passed, and in many cases, exceeded test criteria set forth, assuring the high level of quality that Pride is known for.
