    Subdivision 1. Requirement. A manufacturer who sells or leases a new assistive device to a
consumer, either directly or through an assistive device dealer or lessor, shall furnish the consumer
with an express warranty to preserve or maintain the utility or performance of the assistive device.
The duration of the express warranty must not be less than one year after first possession of
the assistive device by the consumer. If a manufacturer fails to furnish an express warranty as
required by this section, the assistive device shall be covered by an express warranty as if the
manufacturer had furnished an express warranty to the consumer as required by this section.
    Subd. 2. Nonconforming device. If a new assistive device does not conform to an applicable
express warranty and the consumer reports the nonconformity to the manufacturer, the assistive
device lessor, or any of the manufacturer's authorized assistive device dealers and makes the
assistive device available for repair before one year after first possession of the device by the
consumer, the nonconformity must be repaired or replaced.
