As a "medical device" a wheelchair in the USA must be FDA approved. Many manufacturers from outside the USA don't want to have to go through the often costly FDA approval process, especially with a chair that will mostly likely have a very small market, so they don't do this. The insurance companies in the USA generally will only pay for FDA approved wheelchairs.
