PEMF and Pacemakers

Implanted Electronic Devices

The only absolute contraindication of PEMF therapy is if you have an implanted electrical device such as a pacemaker, cochlear implant or an intrathecal pump.

There is a risk that the magnetic field produced by a PEMF device can shut the device off or otherwise interfere with its function.
PEMF after transplant

Organ Transplants

PEMFs are contraindicated in organ transplant patients.

PEMF therapy is not advised after an organ transplant as over stimulation could increase the risk of rejection.


PEMF during pregnancy


Caution is advised during pregnancy.

Whilst there is no evidence of harm caused by using PEMFs during pregnancy, their safety has not yet been established.
PEMF and epilepsy

Neurological Conditions

Those with neurological conditions that can cause seizure (e.g epilepsy) are advised to be cautious when using PEMF therapy.

Reports of PEMF initiating a seizure are very rare however there is the theoretical potential for this to happen.
PEMF and Bleeding

Active Bleeding

One of the benefits of PEMF therapy is the increase in circulation, for people suffering from active bleeding however this may worsen the blood loss and reduce the ability of the blood to clot.

Any source of bleeding should be fully controlled before using PEMF therapy.
