    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method2 specifies procedures and equipment used for testing and evaluating the accessibility of fitness equipment for compliance to Specification F3021 design parameters. Where possible and applicable, accepted test methods from other recognized bodies will be used and referenced. In case of a conflict between this document and Specification F3021, Specification F3021 takes precedence.

    1.2 This test method is to be used in conjunction with Specification F3021.

    1.3 This standard is to be used as additional requirements to address the accessibility of the equipment for persons with disabilities.

    Note 1: Additional test methods applicable to specific pieces of equipment, such as treadmills, bicycles, ellipticals, and strength equipment are currently under development.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
