What are the defects?
The chair is labelled with a maximum user weight of 160kg. Testing has shown that at a weight of around 130kg, the leg members of the chair may deform and that with continued use the chair may eventually collapse.
The chair’s maximum user weight is 130kg.
What are the hazards?
If the chair collapses while the chair is occupied, there is a risk of injury to the occupant or bystanders.
What should consumers do?
K Care Healthcare Solutions will contact affected consumers in writing and provide a new user manual and corrected label to replace the existing weight limit label.
If the occupant of the chair exceeds or is likely to exceed 130kg, consumers should immediately stop using the chair and contact K Care Healthcare Solutions for further options.
For more information, consumers can contact K Care Healthcare Solutions on 1300 783 783.
