  • Causa
    The iguide key allows to the treatment of patients without using the hexapod evo rt system. when users turn the iguide key to the off position; the external inhibit signal is overridden and the iguide software closes any open fractions and logs off (login appears). in some circumstances, a bug in the iguide software prevents the iguide software from logging off. the iguide software looks like it can be used for positioning, but it is no longer running correctly. even when users turn the iguide key back to the on position, it will not set the external inhibit signal or alert them if the position has changed (ie, position guard is inactive). this problem can lead to clinical mistreatment if the user assumes that the iguide software is running correctly. the iguide software will not set the external inhibit signal or notify the user in case of incorrect positioning or movements.
  • Acción
