Sleep Number Beds

I'm a new Biotronik pacemaker recipient .  Our Sleep Number bed has a motor which causes the head and foot of the bed to lift, and also to vibrate.  Does anyone know if this motor will create interference with my pacemaker?    Thx, Mike

I bought an electric adjustable bed just after my open heart surgery and never had any interference. But then again in 13 years of having a PM the only thing I've found so far that interfered was my body worn camera when mounted straight over the pacemaker.

The bed itself is fine, I've had one for 10 years. If you use rate response and your device's rate response is based on motion, you may find that the vibration raises your heartrate. Harmless, but probably not particularly restful.

Even though Sleep Number beds have motors and even magnets, you should be absolutely fine using one.

If anything, they might make recovery that much easier.

Take care
