Sunrise Medical Pty Ltd — MyWay Harnesses

What are the defects?

The MyWay harness consists of two Velcro locking mechanisms. The first Velcro strap has reduced adhesiveness on the harness.

What are the hazards?

If the Velcro strap has reduced adhesiveness, it will not provide core stability or hold the user upright as intended, increasing the risk of a fall.

What should consumers do?

Sunrise Medical is advising consumers they may continue to use the existing harness until supplied with the new design, but pay attention to the status of the Velcro. Conduct daily visual checks of the harness, in particular, check the harness and all straps/buckles for signs of wear and tear.

Once consumers receive the replacement harness, it is essential that they return the old harness to their distributor in the supplied return addressed envelope.
