Overhead Arm Support - Troubleshooting

Common Mistake

Solution

The daggerboard is not pushed fully underneath the mattress, causing product instability.

To ensure product security throughout the procedure, push the daggerboard fully underneath the mattress.

The release clip is not fully engaged, resulting in the locking leg not being completely secure to the daggerboard.

Ensure the release clip is fully engaged and gently pull on the locking leg assembly to test that it is secure.

Placing the Overhead Arm Support wings on in the wrong direction, meaning that the device is not correctly set up for the procedure.   

Ensure the wings are placed on the daggerboard so they are in the correct orientation when placed on the table. The wings should face out in the same direction as the daggerboard.

The straps are not installed at the correct orientation and the strap cannot be locked in place.

Ensure the straps are installed at the correct orientation so that the stoppers can secure the strap in place. If the strap is flipped, the stopper cannot connect with the bracket.

Patient tubing is not secure and is in the way during the procedure

The Overhead Arm Support strap can be positioned to contain extra patient tubes. With the extra strap length that is left over after securing the patient, twist and insert the strap into the bracket further down the wing, around the tubing. This will ensure it is contained and secure throughout the remainder of the procedure.

The locking leg is not correctly locked, so when a patient rests on it, it is not secure.

Once the Overhead Arm Support is at the desired height, rotate the locking mechanism vertically. This will lock the height of the Overhead Arm Support for the remainder of the procedure.
