    I am aware that people who suffer from epilepsy can have issues watching a laser show. However at a reccent demo, a woman approched us and said it cause her pain in her pacemaker. Is this another demographic that can be affected that I should be aware of? Where there is proof that laser projectors affect people with pacemakers? or was this a one time incident? Let me know.

    Thanks Again.

    Hey; I have never heard of this but will ask some more experienced people around the office. I would also post this question on Photonlexicon as it will get a larger number of people looking at it who might be able to answer.

    Pacemaker can't be affected by the light. Laser = just intense light.
    If that would be true, she woild had a heart attack every time someone would take a photo of her using a camera with a flash.

    Epilepsy is totally different.
