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.

Additional Helpful Information:

  • The device will operate from 100 – 240 volts, 50/60 Hz, working nearly anywhere in the world without the need for a transformer or voltage converted.  If traveling outside the U.S., a plug adapter may be necessary, and can be purchased at a retail store.  Tactile Medical does not supply plug adapters.
  • Websites such as www.tsa.gov, or the equivalent agency in your destination country may be able to give your more information.
