PMs and powered wheelchairs

Anyone know if there is an issue with PMs and powered wheelchairs? I have been given a perscription to order one for use now and didn`t even think to ask about PM interference from the electric motor assembly, rechargable batteries, or the recharger itself.

Thanks

There is absolutely no concern with using a power wheelchair with a pacemaker. I am frequently climbing under them and driving them for repairs and my pacemaker runs 100% of the time. I am around them all day.
