"Palm pistol" may get approved for Medicare and medical insurance
That's big news!
Matt Carmel is, well, an inventive fellow. He designed a gun for self-defense by the handicapped who can't handle a regular gun, patented it, designed it around ATF's definition of "any other weapon," so that they classified it as an ordinary handgun, and now got the FDA to list it as as "medical device." The last means that a physician can prescribe it. His next move is to become a designated Medicare equipment supplier, and then move on to private insurers.
UPDATE: it's covered, in an article at med-gadgets.com.
