A field correction is being conducted for the Aquatec® Ocean VIP, Aquatec® Ocean Dual-VIP and Aquatec® Ocean E-VIP distributed between October 1, 2012 and April 30, 2013.

Medical Device Field Correction - September 2012

Invacare® Solara® 3G Manual Wheelchairs

NOTE: This applies ONLY in the United States

Impacted Serial Numbers: 12GE003750, 12GE003554 & 12HE001766


Date Recall Launched: September 2012

A field correction is being conducted for Invacare® Solara® 3G manual wheelchairs with serial numbers 12GE003750, 12GE003554, and 12HE001766. The potential exists for the wheel to rotate freely despite engagement of hub brake. On a non-level surface this condition could result in the chair moving in a rotating motion. Normal use conditions involving vehicle lifts or other elevated surfaces would present an increased risk of injury given this condition. Worst case scenario, the wheel may fully unthread from the hub resulting in wheel separation and ultimate device collapse. As a result, the user could potentially fall from the chair and incur serious injury or death.

If the serial number of your Solara® 3G manual wheelchair is listed above, it is important that you contact your provider immediately and make arrangements to have your device corrected. Invacare is providing the necessary parts, and this correction is free of charge.

If for some reason you currently do not have a provider, contact Invacare as shown below so we can assist you in getting your device corrected.

This recall is voluntarily being executed with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Date Recall Launched: June 2012

Last Updated: September 10, 2012

A field correction is being conducted for the post fuse assembly on certain models of Invacare power wheelchairs distributed between October 11, 2010 and October 21, 2010. The power wheelchairs could potentially be defective in a manner that would result in the fuse not operating as intended (blowing) in the event of future damage or faults within the main wiring harness. While each battery is equipped with a fuse that alone would provide the intended safety function, there is a potential risk of fire and serious injury should both fuses be defective.

If the serial number of your power wheelchair is listed in the table above, it is important that you contact your provider promptly and make arrangements to have your device corrected. Invacare is providing the necessary parts free of charge.
