Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The recall was initiated after an investigation conducted by the Posey Company determined that a patient may be able to catch the belt on a stationary object (wall, pipe, etc.) and use their body force to tear or break the strap, creating freedom of arm movement. In some patient populations, such freedom of movement could pose an unwanted hazard of serious injury to a patient or caregiver.
FDA Determined
