REASON

Potential exists for the collision supervision not to work properly following loss of the individual room configuration data settings causing danger of collision with fix mounted room equipment, walls or floor may occur. This might cause components of the system to fall or tilt which could result in crushing of patients, operators or staff, collision of system parts with patients, as well as result in delay or interruption of the clinical procedure.
