Euro Lift 2005 ND 

Reason

Notice to raise awareness of the potential dangers associated with electrically adjustable treatment tables or beds with power assisted lifting mechanisms.  One fatality occurred as a result of being crushed between the moving linkages of an electrically powered height adjustable table, while the table was in operation.  Most tables (or beds) incorporate scissor type linkages that introduce trapping, crush and shear points.  These are more evident at the lower table height positions, where movement of the linkages towards other stationary components is usually the fastest.
