Brief Answer:
Sauna slim belts in heart patient

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.
Regular 30 minutes aerobic exercise such as brisk walking at least 5 days in week will help you shed extra weight. Sauna slim belts offers additional support for one’s efforts.
Sauna slim belts work by utilizing a sauna-like effect that helps people to remove excess body water as they’re working out. Does not promote weight loss on its own.Only works if used together with regular exercise.That means if wear this belt and don't do any exercise wearing it ,it won't be of any use.Only usable for the midsection or waist area.Results are not uniform in all cases.
However it is a passive process and does not cause any extra-work load on heart.
There is no mention in literature about the use of this kind of belt in heart patient.You can use it ,so long it is not uncomfortable.
