Our expert says:
The answer is we don't know. The Powerplate is so new, and so under-researched that we simply don't know whether its dangerous. In that regard, your surgeon's advice is the correct one - you kind of just have to see and if you feel the slightest discomfort, stop. But there's not a single study. There are some studies thave have suggested that patients with cardiovascular problems should avoid use, and especially pacemakers. But they're all theoretical, not proven.
So I'm in the same camp as your surgeon here.
