  • Causa
    Arjo have identified a potential for the chair or stretcher detachment from entroy pool lifter. it is identified that this issue is caused by a potential misalignment that might be unnoticed by the caregiver so the seat/stretcher does not get fully paired with the pin. instead, once the lift reaches certain height, the seat/stretcher falls off the lift. there are one or more possible reasons that can lead to such a situation to occur: - maintenance checks not performed properly,- users do not recognize the poor connection,- pool lift owners does not recognise that the product needs maintenance, - wear on the docking connection causes the pin to hit the edge of the pairing cylinder instead of entering it.
  • Acción
