Didn't think of it

I purchased an electric recliner with masssager.  I did not even remember I have a pacemaker implant.  I've been equipped since  2010.  This is my second one.  So  - can I use the chair?  I don't like massages so I wold not be using the massager,  but I do need help to pull the levers, etc.

I use an electric recliner since pushing the buttons is easier that using a manual one with levers.  As to the massage part i do not know the answer.   If it has a magnetic and keep it 6 inches from your pacemaker.  They generally say it is ok.                                                                                   Seems a waste not to use the massage part.

I use an electric recliner at times. No problem. 

I've got one too

To be honest, I didn't even give it a thought as to whether or not I should use it post implant, I just did.

No issues.

I'm sitting on one now.  There is no problem with the little motors in home appliances.  There is little in a home that could come up to the level of being unlikely to cause any problems.

I love my electric recliner and wondered if it would be a problem for my pacemaker.

I also have an electric adjustable bed.   Will that be a problem?  It has a latex mattress.
