Medifab Ltd — Shuttle Discovery with 4 Wheel Verve Stroller
What are the defects?
A gap may develop at the folding joint. If the Nyloc anti-vibration nut is over-tightened, it will damage the T bolt within the folding joint leading to a greater gap, presenting an increased risk of finger entrapment.
What are the hazards?
The gap may cause a finger entrapment hazard for the user or others, potentially causing a serious injury.
What should consumers do?
Medifab will contact all affected customers in writing.
Medifab has published an enhanced User Manual, a copy can be downloaded from Medifab’s website:
Users are requested to check the stroller frame as follows:
Without a child or seat in the stroller frame, and with the joint locked, check the frame for movement in the folding joint. If a gap greater than 2mm is present at the folding joint, please check that the T bolt has not been damaged.
If the plastic shroud covering the head of the T bolt is broken or missing, please stop using the product and contact the Shuttle Discovery distributor, health care provider or Medifab to arrange the fitting of a replacement T bolt.
If the T bolt is not damaged follow the maintenance guidance provided in the updated User Manual on Medifab's website to tighten the Nyloc domed nut.
