Back tubes

Preventive replacement – urgent safety information

Corrective action VK-0008 for:

  • Wheelchair models Skater, Trend, Jump alpha/ beta, Vector
  • Wheelchairs with back tubes made of section tube with groove

from production period 01/2008-09/2015


Dear Sirs and Madams,

the name SORG Rollstuhltechnik stands for quality and safety. Due to this claim we observe our wheelchairs even after they have reached the customer.


In the course of this continuous market observation, our attention has been drawn to a possible weakness with a certain configuration of back tubes on SORG wheelchairs from the production period 01/2008-09/2015.

In order to prevent damage or breakage on the affected wheelchairs, we have developed an exchange set. With this cover letter, you will get the records concerning the wheelchairs you have handed over in the past.

We would like to point out at this point that it is not necessary to drive to the customer. Customers must be informed of the corrective action and asked to arrange an appointment for replacement at their medical supply store. Of course, we will provide you with an appropriate wording proposal for writing to your customers on our website. The corresponding link can be found in the FAQ’s. With the questionnaire, you can order the appropriate exchange sets free of charge after identification of the wheelchair.
