Exercise equipment by SKLZ has been recalled for injury dangers

Individuals in West Virginia who enjoy working out may use resistance bands. This is particularly true if they prefer to work out at home instead of a gym. Unfortunately, the resistance bands made by SKLZ have recently been recalled, and the exercise equipment may be a defective product.

Apparently, the SKLZ Recoil 360 All-Position Resistance Trainers are 8 feet long and can require two people to use them. One person wears a belt and the other uses the safety strap to create tension. This allows adequate jumping and running training. Alternatively, the bands can be used by themselves, in which case the user attaches the strap to a stationary object.

Unfortunately, there have been three separate reports of injuries related to this product. Apparently, there is a welded ring that can detach during use and generally snaps off toward the user with the safety strap. The reported injuries included a laceration, puncture wound and lower leg blunt trauma. Due to the dangers associated with these resistance trainers, it is important to stop use immediately, return them and request a free replacement.

With obesity an ongoing issue across the country, including here in West Virginia, exercise is common and encouraged. However, when exercise equipment is defective, it can result in a serious injury, which can be a lot worse than being a little overweight. When a defective product has caused an injury, a products liability attorney can help in assessing what legal options are available to seek financial relief for any financial damages incurred as a result.
