Portable media players such as iPods are unlikely to interfere with heart pacemakers, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration researcher reported on Thursday.
His tests of a variety of iPods showed they did not produce enough of an electromagnetic field to interfere with the devices.
FDA researcher Howard Bassen and colleagues set up a complex experiment using a saline-filled bag to simulate the human body and a coil sensor designed to pick up electromagnetic emissions.
The FDA researchers did not examine any portable music devices other than iPods, which are made by Apple Inc…. Explain “other” please…. Oh ya the iPhone etc.
