Responsible Entity Philips Electronics Australia Ltd
Reason/Issue Philips has received reported instances in which the table of the OmniDiagnost system (OD-Eleva) suddenly started to rotate from 0 to 90 degrees (table arm down) with high speed. The cause of this unexpected rotation movement is related to an issue with the fixation of the upper and lower tilt actuator. This rotating movement cannot be stopped by the user.

If the system rotates uncontrolled, there is a risk of injury for the patient on the table. A rotating table also might hit a user or bystander standing near the system.
