Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
A control system failure may cause the U-Arm to move downward unexpectedly when the Radiology Technologist is positioning the equipment using the "Up" or "Down" control buttons. Downward movement occurs at three times the normal rate of speed and will continue until the device control button is released, the Emergency Stop button is activated or the equipment Bump Sensor contacts an object.

Carestream Health recommends that the DR 9000 U-arm be moved before positioning the patient under the U-arm for a decubitus exam. This will remove any potential safety hazard posed to the patient as a result of any unexpected movement.
