For the girls

Hi girls, 

i really want to get some body contouring treatments done but all of them uses radio frequency waves and magnetic fields.... i have heard it is not safe for pacemakers but I only need the treatment on my legs/tummy. My question is;  since it is not close to the pacemaker area, do you think it will be ok for me to undergo the treatments ????

You'll have to put up with this bloke, I'm afraid.

I doubt that anyone is going to say safe/not safe from what you've said.

Your first port of call must be the cardiology department and if need be your therapist and and your medics must discuss this procedure.

It sounds as though there might be some high power stuff involved. Diathermy is safe under the right conditions and pacemakers are designed to be shielded from all sorts of electrical and magnetic radiation including MRI which is powerful enough to vibrate your molecules.

My main worry would be not so much the generator, but the leads that have the potential to act as antenna's.

Play safe and hopefully someone here might be able to give you more advice.

Best to ask the manufacturer

Hi, I think it's best to email or call the manufacturer. They know best how their product will react to certain situations.

List all activities you worry about, they will answer everything. I did this before.

I agree with Dekdee. Calling or emailing the manufacturer is a good idea. 

I don't know if you've booked a consultation yet, but your post piqued my interest and I had a look at the various body sculpting / fat reduction methods out there. There are quite a few seemingly painful choices! You're braver than me!

Is it worth booking a consultation to discuss what might be safest with the clinic you want to use or ringing them for their own advice about the PM and any reassurances they might require? e.g. a letter from the manufacturer or your EP which gives them the 'all clear' for treating you.  

Alternatively you're going to have to either embrace your curves or slog it out at the gym ! 

You know you're wired when...

You have an excuse for being a couch potato.
