I am seeking information about the safety of using the Daedulus rotating
tilt head with their mounting equipment for a Dynavox. The rotating tilt
head permits swinging the Dynavox down to the side. Medicaid has denied
this item stating it is unsafe-we don't have any specific safety reasons.
They spoke with the manufacturer of Dynavox who gave them this
information. we are in the process of researching this information
further. But it would be helpful to know if anyone else has received
such a denial? Has anyone received an approval for the rotating tilt
head from Medicaid? Has anyone found it unsafe (please be specific)?
Would really appreiciate any information that could be offered.
