I had a stent implanted, do I have the use of vibrating platforms contraindicated?

Question: A year and a half ago I had a stent placed. In the stress test they did two months ago, everything went well. Can I use a vibration platform to exercise? Antonio (Jacksonville).

Answer: There is no problem in using the vibrating platform due to being a stent, as long as you verify that this type of exercise does not cause an excessive increase in blood pressure or heart rate. In any case, in patients with heart disease, aerobic exercise (walking, swimming, cycling, etc.) is especially recommended, which can be complemented with an isometric exercise session (such as the one performed on the platform).
