The DORO Lucent Headrest System is used to support the head and neck during brain and spine surgeries when immobilization is required. The headrest system has several parts including the base unit, the locking transitional member, and transitional member.
Reason for Recall
Pro-Med Instruments is recalling the DORO® LUCENT Base Unit, Locking Transitional Member, and Transitional Member because recent design revisions can prevent the headrest from fitting together properly if parts from different revisions are used together. The use of this combination of different revision parts may cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
