"Hillrom is recalling the Liko Multirall 200 Overhead Lift due to customer reports that the Q-link strap lock does not attach to the S65 carriage hook as it should," FDA said. "If the strap lock does not attach, the motor or the patient may fall. Use of the affected product may cause adverse events such as serious injury and death."
The Hillrom Lift is a general-purpose lift used in nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities and hospitals to move patients from room to room. The lift is part of the Multirall 200 overhead lift system which includes an overhead lift motor, the S65 rail carriage hook, and a Q-link strap.
The recalled lifts were manufactured and distributed in the U.S. from Oct. 1, 2020 to Dec. 17, 2020. FDA has identified this as a Class I Recall, the most serious type of recall.
This recall began on December 18, 2020.
