Identifying features

Reasons the product is recalled

While the sticker on the wheelchair correctly identifies the maximum user weight (130kg), the user manual supplied with these wheelchairs is incorrect. It states the maximum user weight is 160kg. The manual should state 130kg as the correct user weight.

The hazards to consumers

Users may be misinformed about the safe user weight of the chair, increasing the risk that the user may be seriously injured if the wheelchair breaks or collapses, or if the user falls out of the chair.

What consumers should do

Consumers should discard the old user manual and contact Independent Healthcare Solutions to arrange to replace it with a new user instruction manual.
