Bicycle Fluid Trainer

I am tony... 45 yrs... about 5 weeks in with a pacemaker for vaso-vagal syncope - long pause ...anyways other than not sleeping well and some anxiety I have started exercising again...walking, aerobics, step etc... to start out slow...I know I can jog at this point...Does anyone know if the magnets in a bicycle fluid trainer is to much or might interfere with the pacemaker ?...

No it should not

The mag is on the flywheel by the bottom of the trainer so your pacemaker is very far from it. It should not effect your device. I have a cateye trainer that I use in the winter to cycle indoors. There is a magnet in the device that spins the rear wheel. I never had a problem.

Thank You

mspacer,
Thanx, went ahead and did 30 mins and felt fine. When I ask the PM clinic and or EP they always just give me the standard answers about no MRI's etc...Appreciate it.
Keep cycling.

You know you're wired when...

Your license plate reads “Pacer4Life”.

So, my advice is to go about your daily routine and forget that you have a pacemaker implanted in your body.
