    On May 3, 2018, the firm issued an Urgent Amended Medical Device Correction notice to affected customers via certified mail. Customers were reminded that they were previously notified in April 2016 regarding the same issue. At that time, the firm committed to providing a replacement for all affected MRx units. The May 2018 notification was sent only to remaining customers who had not yet received a replacement device. Those customers were informed that due to the product being discontinued, their affected units would receive a replacement therapy board instead of a replacement unit. Customers were informed that they could continue to use their MRx prior to repair. But, if they observe a red X in the Ready for Use indicator, to follow the troubleshooting instructions in the MRx IFU. They were also advised that they would be contacted by Philips to schedule the repair of the device. If the customer has already returned their unit but has not yet received a replacement, they were advised that Philips will be replacing the therapy board, not the entire device. If you need further information or support concerning this notification, please contact your local Philips representative or call the firm at 1-800-722- 9377.
