Model Number MODEL 250
Event Date 05/30/2012
Event Type  Malfunction   
Event Description
It was initially reported that the company representative was having problems with her handheld. For the handheld to charge, the serial cable has to be manipulated a certain way. A replacement serial cable was sent to the company representative, but it did not fix the issue. The handheld and both serial cables were returned to the manufacturer for evaluation. Product analysis is planned, but has not been completed.

Manufacturer Narrative

Manufacturer Narrative
Device failure occurred, but did not cause or contribute to a death or serious injury.

Event Description
Additional information was received that the product analysis was completed on the handheld and flashcard. No anomalies associated with the serial cables were identified during the analysis. An analysis was performed on the returned handheld and the reported allegation was verified. During the analysis it was identified that the sync cable connector on the bottom of the handheld was damaged. The cause for the damage to the connector is most likely associated with mishandling of the device as it appears the connector detents are not being compressed when removing or manipulating the serial data cable, thus placing an extensive amount of force on the pcb and attached cable receptacle. No anomalies associated with flashcard software or databases were identified during the flashcard analysis. The flashcard and software performed according to functional specifications.

Event Description
Analysis was performed on the returned handheld and no communication anomalies were identified. An analysis of the handheld identified that some of the solder connections between the sync cable connector leads and the handheld printed circuit board (pcb) were cracked. Because of the damage, the handheld was unable to receive power from the ac adapter. The cause for the damage to the solder connections is most likely associated with mishandling of the device as it appears the connector detents are not being compressed when removing or manipulating the serial data cable, thus placing an extensive amount of force on the pcb and attached cable receptacle. Additionally, it was also identified that the serial cable had an open electrical connection in the power cable. As a result of the open wire connection, the handheld would receive power from the ac adapter intermittently. No anomalies associated with flashcard software or databases were identified during the flashcard analysis. The flashcard and software performed according to functional specifications.
 
Event Description
It was reported that the nurse¿s handheld device was having intermittent communication issues. The handheld was used with a known functional wand but the issues were not resolved. The handheld device has been returned to the manufacturer where analysis is currently underway.

Event Date 01/17/2013
Event Type  Malfunction   
Manufacturer Narrative
Device failure occurred, but did not cause or contribute to a death or serious injury.

Event Description
A former company representative's programming system was returned to the manufacturer when they left the company. Product analysis was completed on the wand, handheld and flashcard. No visual or mechanical anomaly was identified with the wand. Continuity testing of the serial data cable and the battery cable passed. The programming wand performed according to functional specifications. During the analysis it was identified that the sync cable connector on the bottom of the handheld was damaged. Because of the damage, the handheld was unable to receive power from the ac adapter. The cause for the damage to the connector is most likely associated with mishandling of the device as it appears the connector detents are not being compressed when removing or manipulating the serial data cable, thus placing an extensive amount of force on the pcb and attached cable receptacle. No other anomalies were identified. No anomalies associated with flashcard software or databases were identified during the flashcard analysis. The flashcard and software performed according to functional specifications.

Event Description
On (b)(6) 2013 it was reported that a serial cable and two power cables for the handheld were going to be returned to the manufacturer for product analysis. They were received on (b)(6) 2013 and are undergoing product analysis.

Event Description
On (b)(4) 2013 it was reported that the handheld was not holding a charge. Troubleshooting was performed with chargers and connections that were known to be working but the handheld still would not hold a charge. Attempts for the return of the handheld to the manufacturer for product analysis have been made but the handheld has not been returned to the manufacturer to date.

Event Description
Additional information was received when the handheld and flashcard were returned for product analysis. Product analysis on the handheld was completed on (b)(6) 2013. No anomalies associated with the main battery were identified during the analysis. During the analysis it was identified that the sync cable connector on the bottom of the handheld was damaged. Because of the damage, the handheld was unable to receive power from the ac adapter. The cause for the damage to the connector is most likely associated with mishandling of the device as it appears the connector detents are not being compressed when removing or manipulating the serial data cable, thus placing an extensive amount of force on the pcb and attached cable receptacle. No other anomalies were identified. Product analysis on the flashcard was also completed on (b)(4) 2013. No anomalies associated with flashcard software or databases were identified during the flashcard analysis. The flashcard and software performed according to functional specifications.

Event Description
On (b)(4) 2013 product analysis was completed on the ac power cords. For one of the cords, there were no observed anomalies; returned ac power cradle provided consistent power to the hhd in the pa lab. For the second power cord, product analysis identified that the connector to the ac adapter was damaged, exposing the metal contacts inside.

Event Type  Malfunction   
Manufacturer Narrative

Event Description
The handheld device has been returned to the manufacturer where analysis is currently underway.

Manufacturer Narrative
Type of device name, corrected data: the initial reported inadvertently reported the type of device as the programming software when the issue was with the programming computer.

Event Description
Additional information was received that unless he holds it a certain way, it won't maintain a charge or communicate properly during interrogation. Also, when he attempted to use it on a patient, the hhd kept on shutting down. A "check sum" error appeared on his screen. He said patients¿ vns is working and they feel stimulation. Attempts for product return have been unsuccessful.

Event Description
Our consultant reported that he received a call from a neurology office reporting that their handheld computer only charges a when the ac power adapter is connected a certain way and ¿wiggled around. ¿ he explained that he has to ¿play around with it to get it to charge. ¿ the handheld itself does hold a charge if it charges correctly with the ac power adapter held a certain way. Good faith attempts are underway for further details about the reported event.

Event Description
Analysis of the handheld was completed on (b)(4) 2014. During the analysis, it was identified that the handheld would not power on using a known good ac adapter. The cause for the anomaly is associated with damaged handheld sync connector leads to the pcb. Because of the damage, the handheld was unable to receive power from the ac adapter. The cause for the damage to the connector leads and solder connections is most likely associated with mishandling of the device as it appears the connector detents are not being compressed when removing or manipulating the serial data cable, thus placing an extensive amount of force on the pcb and attached cable receptacle. No other anomalies were identified. Analysis of the flashcard was completed on (b)(4) 2014. No anomalies associated with flashcard software or databases were identified during the flashcard analysis. The flashcard and software performed according to functional specifications.

Model Number MODEL 250
Event Date 01/10/2014
Event Type  Malfunction   
Manufacturer Narrative
Device failure occurred, but did not cause or contribute to a death or serious injury.
 
Event Description
It was reported that a programming system was not working due to communication issues. The programming system would work intermittently and the communication difficulties were confirmed on a demo device. The 9v battery was not the cause of the communication issues. The programming system was returned to the manufacturer where the failure to program was confirmed and attributed to an intermittent conductor in the serial data cable. Once the cable was substituted, all communication errors cleared. No issues with the returned flashcard were noted. During analysis of the returned handheld, it was identified that some of the sync cable connector leads were damaged and that the solder connections between the sync cable connector leads and the pcb were cracked. Because of the damage, the handheld was unable to receive power from the ac adapter. The cause for the damage to the connector and solder connections is most likely associated with mishandling of the device as it appears the connector detents are not being compressed when removing or manipulating the serial data cable, thus placing an extensive amount of force on the pcb and attached cable receptacle. It was also identified that the serial cable was unable to establish communication using a known good wand and the returned handheld. The cause for the communication difficulties is associated with a broken wire connection on the axim connector plug pcb. Once the wire was soldered back onto the dell axim connector plug pcb, the serial cable was able to establish communication between the handheld and wand. The most likely cause for the wire breaks can be associated with mishandling of the serial cable. The communication errors associated with the intermittent conductor in the wand will be reported via alternate summary reporting.
