ICD Protection

If you have an ICD or pacemaker implanted there is often a worry that it may come to some harm if it is knocked or banged. Additionally, there is the period after implantation where the incision area can be tender. In this case, you may want a little extra protection for it when travelling in a car or carrying a back pack or similar item.

A small cushion or rolled up cloth may help but if you need something a little more substantial or sturdy you may want to consider getting a purpose built protector.
