It would be useful to get some very current information about how it works passing through TSA security at airports with a POC. As things are constantly changing we should get current experiences. There are 2 scenarios for which current and new feedback from persons passing through TSA security checkpoints would be helpful:
Scenario 1: The passenger uses the POC when flying but does not need it on the ground. What kind of note from physician is required so the passenger can pass through TSA security, travel with the POC in his carry on luggage and carry it onto the plane for use during flight?
Scenario 2: The passenger uses the POC on the ground while walking but does not need it on the plan. What kind of note from physician is required so the passenger can use the POC in airport, pass through TSA security, and carry the POC onto to plane in carry-on luggage?
