Product warranty

Medifab Limited (Medifab) warrants that for the warranty period specified below this product will be of acceptable quality, and free from defects in materials and manufacturing.

 

Warranty period

The period during which this warranty is in effect will be one year from the date the product was first purchased from Medifab. This period may include the time the product was being trialled.

Original Equipment Manufacturer's warranties that extend beyond a year as stated in the Instructions for Use or User Manual will be honoured.

To obtain the benefit of this warranty you must make a claim within the warranty period. This warranty does not cover any defects notified to Medifab after the one-year warranty period, although you may still have statutory rights outside of that period.

Where a defective product has been replaced under a warranty claim, the replacement product will be subject to the remainder of the original warranty period. You may have statutory rights in respect of replacement products outside this period.

 

Warranty exclusions

This warranty does not extend to damage or loss caused by normal wear and tear, fire, excessive heat, water, moisture, dampness, theft, vermin, or insect infestation.

This warranty does not cover defects caused by any of the following:

  • any failure by any person to follow Medifab’s instructions on use or operation of the product (including those contained in the product manual or instructions provided with the product)
  • improper fitting of the product, other than by Medifab
  • improper fitting of the product by any person resulting from any negligent or improper instructions given by a therapist or other health professional
  • any failure by any person to maintain the products in the manner recommended by Medifab
  • physical damage caused to the products following purchase, other than by Medifab
  • the addition of third party components or parts to the products, other than as recommended or authorised in writing by Medifab
  • repair, modification or other work carried out on the product by any person other than Medifab or an authorised Medifab repairer.
  • A six month warranty period applies to Power batteries  

Any modification of the products or attempt by any person to repair any products, without the prior written authorisation of Medifab, will invalidate this warranty, although your statutory rights will remain unaffected.
