TRAVELING WITH YOUR ENTRE SYSTEM:
Patients may travel with any device that is medically necessary and can go through the x-ray screening process. Tactile Medical recommends patients traveling with their device do the following:
- Carry on their controller and power cord; patients may pack any garments/sleeves in their checked luggage
- Bring their user guide and prescription card with them to better help explain what the device does to a TSA agent
- Take the controller out of the carry on, as is done with a laptop
- Be prepared to turn the device on and show a TSA agent how the device works, if asked to do so
