Apple Highlights Medical Conditions Vision Pro Might Not Be Compatible With
If you’re picking up one of Apple’s new $3499 Vision Pro mixed reality headsets on February 2 you might want to take a look at a list of medical conditions that could get in your way.
Apple has shared a new support document that details medical conditions that using a Vision Pro with “might aggravate your symptoms or increase your risk of injury or discomfort.”
The list of medical conditions includes:
Migraines or chronic headaches
Dizziness or vertigo
Eye or vision conditions, such as binocular vision conditions
Inner ear conditions
History of dry eyes, itchiness, or swelling of the eyelids
Skin allergies or sensitivities
Balance or gait conditions
Apple says that anyone who suffers symptoms related to those medical conditions should consult a medical provider before using the Vision Pro headset. Apple also says that the headset’s use of radio transmitters could affect nearby devices including cardiac pacemakers, hearing aids, and defibrillators.
The support document goes on to say that people should stop using a Vision Pro if they experience symptoms related to a medical condition. Apple also says that people who “notice swelling, itchiness, skin irritation, or other skin reactions while using your device or after using the device should stop using it.
The Vision Pro headset is now available for preorder with the headset going on sale for real on February 2 with prices starting at $3,499 for the 256GB model.
