The Russian Ministry of Labor made important changes to the procedure for replacing technical rehabilitation facilities for citizens with disabilities. Now, wheelchairs with electric drive and devices on the lower limbs and trunk (orthoses) will not need to be sent for examination before replacement. 

According to the press service of the Ministry of Labor, such an order appeared after an analysis of the practice of sending rehabilitation means for examination. It turned out that in 90% of cases after the examination, the orthoses were not repairable. But the process of transferring the means of rehabilitation for examination created an inconvenience to a person with a disability. 

 Now, according to the new regulation, rehabilitation facilities will be replaced without examination after the end of their life. Earlier, the Ministry of Labor submitted to the State Duma a draft law on the possibility of receiving rehabilitation funds at the place of residence, and not at the place of registration of citizens with disabilities.
