Arjo, Inc. today announced that it is voluntarily conducting a Class I recall for two models, HMB001-US (without scale) and HMB002-US (with scale) of its MINSTREL Patient Lifts because of mechanical problems that could result in serious patient injury. The FDA defines a Class I recall as a situation in which there is reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
The device is a battery powered patient lift. Patient lifts are intended to be used to lift and transport patients from one location to another, such as from a bed to a bath. There are two mechanical problems for which the MINSTREL patient lift is currently being recalled. The first involves the hanger bar detaching from the lift resulting in the patient falling to the ground because of a missing spring washer. The second problem involves a bolt in the foot pedal assembly becoming loose which allows the foot pedal assembly to fall off of the lift. This results in the lift becoming unstable and the patient possibly falling.
This recall involves 116 MINSTREL Patient Lifts that could possibly result in hanger bar detachment due to pin migration or pin breakage in the hanger bar assembly.
