It is possible that over time and under some usage conditions, the backrest brackets may break and detach from the chair frame.
If a backrest bracket breaks and goes unnoticed by the user or caregiver, there is a risk that the occupant could fall out of the seat and sustain injury to the head or lower back.
Ebos Healthcare is recalling all affected wheelchairs to replace the backrest brackets.
