Reason of Field Safety Corrective Action:
The Universal Arm Support enables precise positioning of the patient’s arm during surgical procedures. During our continuous monitoring and analysis of Trumpf Medical products installed in the field customers have reported that the Universal Arm Support may be unable to hold its set position and support the arm of the patient. The feedback describes the issue occurring while attempting to secure the position of the device. With this preventive field action Trumpf Medical proactively wants to ensure the safe intended use of the Universal Arm Support. The product has not been involved with any reported injuries.
1. Check the affected devices before every use for the correct functionality of the hydraulic clamping. This has to be done in the following way:
- Attach the Universal Arm Support to the side rail of the operating table top. - Position the pad according to Picture 1 and fix the hand wheel. - Push down on the pad with approximately 10 kg and check if the hand wheel is opening by itself. If the hand wheel does not open by itself and the Universal Arm Support will hold its position you are able to continue to use the device. In other cases stop the use of the device and contact your Trumpf Medical representative immediately.
2. Trumpf Medical will provide a modification of the Universal Arm Support. The parts will become available after June 2016 and you will be contacted by your authorized Trumpf Medical service partner to arrange service.
3. Please complete the Confirmation of Receipt (Attachment 1) and include a contact person to arrange the repair.
