Just found out that Parks is changing their connectors on the machines and cuffs. Apparently there has been an issue with IV's getting connected to the inflators so the FDA has asked the connectors to be modified. I ordered some new bladders and got these crazy connectors on them. Parks' has a form you fill out and they will send you the kit to modify you machine and other cuffs with locking connectors. This started OCT 1st.
I have heard some stuff about techs recently and lack of knowledge, but this really takes the cake. Another example of what some schools are putting out or OTJ training going on.
I recommend emailing them your machine serial number and type, be sure and let them know if you have an automatic inflator or MPI. They are probably going to be pretty busy getting these its out. Their customer service has been pretty outstanding recently.
