  • Causa
    The contoura 1000/1080 range beds are intended to be used as a bariatric medical device which is designed for patients with bmi >40. the devices have been made in accordance to the specification and cannot be descibed as defective. however if the device is used in contradiction to its intended use there is a low but existing entrapment risk for a patient being treated on this bed while being under this bmi level as not all patients are at equal risk for entrapment. in particular small lightweight patients are generally at the greatest risk for entrapment because their small physical dimensions may enhance their ability to fit into a gap in whole or in part. to help the users of these devices to always be aware of the intended use and therefore increase safety we offer additional labeling indicating that the bed is designed for patients with bmi >40. the instruction for use will contain more details on the issue and additional labels will be placed on the bed frame.
