OK, I have had a pacemaker installed. Also, my wife has cut my hair for years, but uses a really old clipper with the brush-type motor that sparks and emits ozone. This is a no-no to get near the pacemaker. As my head is, unfortunately, somewhat near my heart, there is a problem.
The two are not compatible. Doctors don’t know anything about hair clippers and anybody knowing about motors and hair clippers probably isn’t up on pacemakers.
So, do modern hair clipper/trimmers have non-sparking motors now?
Is there another Doper with a pacemaker who gets haircuts at home?
If nobody knows, any suggestions where might get such info?
I’m not sure why old clippers would be such a bad thing around your pacemaker. Sure, the things are horrible emitters of RF noise, but your pacemaker is designed to work around such things. Newer clippers will generate a lot less RF noise, if that helps to put your mind at ease.
