Is it dangerous to be near our magnets if you have a pacemaker fitted?

If a heart pacemaker is in close proximity to a strong magnet (such as some of our neodymium magnets) then the function of the pacemaker will be affected as the magnet can cause the pacemaker to function in a manner that does not respond to the user’s own heart rhythm. We would advise that people who have pacemakers fitted do not allow strong magnets to be put close to their chests.
