Approved Exercise Equipment & Accessories
My wife received an ICD 15 months ago & is doing well. However, her doctor has advised her to lose weight & get in shape. She is willing to use a elliptical trainer - but, all the ones I've seen have heart-rate monitors in the handles (you place your hands around the metal hand-holds & they measure your heart rate). I am leery of these since she says that her doctor told her not to stand on a weight scale that determines fat content (similar electrical method?). Anyone have any knowledge, experience, advice as to what equipment and/or accessories we can use (and how), and what to avoid? (BTW: her doctor told her to avoid hair dryers, though all the info I've seen says they're OK).
