  • Reason
    When an error message remains displayed and is not cleared in the protura software with the elekta pedestal coordinates, moving the pedestal could cause the protura software to not update with the pedestal location and buffers the pedestal movement history.
  • Action
    Customers were notified via email on about November 8, 2017. Instructions include to contact Civco Medical Solutions to arrange an update to the device. Until the update is accomplished, customers were instructed to review and acknowledge the notification, verify the actual pedestal location matches the pedestal location being locked into Protura software, and disable the auto load/zero functionality described in the IFU.
