vibration exercise machine

i have 2 stents and was wondering if exercising on the new vibration platform exercise machine would cause the stents to move and tear an artery?????  i am doing cold laser lipo and using the vibration machine for exercise afterward.  (have been to 2 sessions so far).  i have ordered one of the machines for use at home.  should i be concerned at all?  they say these machines are great for any number of treatments, not only weight loss.

I can't think of anything which would cause a stent to actually move. They are inflated into position with quite high pressure. If they are unable to get the stent to inflate and push the artery into the dilated position, they will have injected nitro to achieve this.

Hi there,

I had one of those machines and used mine about 1 week after I had Cardiac Ablation done... that was a bit uncomfortable in the beginning but I believe the fibration is great for blood circulation!  just made me itch all over, but not to bad :)

I would say that you are safe.  Just people with pacemakers have been adviced not to use it!  maybe it is due to electro's?  not sure.  But I can also concur with "ED" that the stent will stay in position.

Have fun :)
