Instances where InTouch beds casters have fallen off. Aug 6 2014

Stryker has received complaints from the field alleging instances where the In Touch beds are hoisted or lifted from the floor and the casters have fallen off. The investigations into these casters have shown that in these cases the caster has broken on the top of the caster stem where the brake rod inserts into the caster. If more than one caster on a unit is damaged, brake functions can be affected by having a reduced holding force
