Constitution Arms, the maker of the Palm Pistol, registered with the FDA as a medical device facility and listed the Palm Pistol as a "recreational adaptor."

Some who fought for the Palm Pistol to be classified as a medical device believed the elderly and disabled would enhance their safety by owning one. The FDA concluded though that the Palm Pistol was not a medical device, and health insurance such as Medicare would not cover the item.
