Sports and ICDs

Hello, I've just had an ICD fitted one month ago and so far so good. 

I've been searching for answers to a few questions but there appears to be no information available so hoping someone might have some answers. 

I play a combat shooting sport called airsoft, we use replica weapons that use 6mm plastic pellets to "shoot" each other. Obviously protecting the wound site is crucial but my questions relate more to electrical interference of my device. 

The guns we use to play are battery powered and as such use motors that have magnets on them. So main question is does anyone amongst here play airsoft after having a device fitted? If so what measures have you taken to minimise or mitigate any risks and have you noticed any issues I should be aware of.



Nope don't play it.

No worries. That little motor isn't going to do anything to your PM. I wouldn't play in the first month, anyway. Let things heal.

Have fun!
