Shocking Have there been any studies about the potential long term effort of low level shock from one foot to the other? I've read the effect is harmless, but what is someone is stepping on the scales several times a day?

I checked all the sites you provided, and none of them cite any studies or evidence proving any risk whatsoever. The idea that one should not use with pacemakers is again not based on any scientific rational or data, but on pure logic and caution. .5 mAmp is an exceedingly small current, and traveling at a low frequency of 50kHz is unlikely to cause any real harm. As to long term effects of low voltage exposure, I have never run into a data-based, peer-reviewed study showing a direct correlation between exposure and ill effect. I have seen a few that fall into the "tin-foil hat" and "contrails" categories.
