Limited Warranty

BPM manufactures products from customer supplied patient casts.  As part of our service, we offer modification of these casts. BPM offers NO warranty for fit of the product nor for patient outcome with the product.  BPM offers a LIMITED WARRANTY on all of our custom products to the original customer that said products are free of defects in material and workmanship for a period of ninety (90) days beginning from the date of shipment if the products are used as intended and have had no post-manufacturing modifications.  Please call BPM first to discuss any potential warranty issues.  In the event of a requested warranty adjustment, the original fabricated product must be returned to BPM for evaluation to determine eligibility for warranty adjustment.  Upon customer request, BPM will provide a return UPS Ground shipping label and if the product is determined to be covered by warranty then BPM will pay for the return shipping charges plus charges for reshipment.  Any other return shipping service must be arranged for by the customer and is at the customer's expense.  Items not returned for evaluation will be rejected for warranty adjustment.  Evaluation for warranty adjustment is based solely upon whether the product was manufactured to the original information and instructions detailed on the original customer work order.  If a product is determined to be eligible for warranty adjustment, BPM’s sole obligation under this LIMITED WARRANTY shall be to modify or replace the product at BPM’s sole discretion.   No warranty adjustments are available to customers with past due balances.
