Reply To: Spinal Cord Stimulator – SCS Part 15


In answer to steph regarding Heat Pads, and other electrical equipment. Here is a link to Boston Scientific Safety information:

It is very important not to ever use anything with wires like a Heat Cushion, Massaging Chair, and Electric Blankets….not only will you destroy these appliances but you risk frying your Stimulator inside you.

Every manufacturer of Stimulators provides a manual which when read in total does give information on what to avoid etc. i know they seem to be full of blurb but its the small print that matters with a Stimulator.
