|French term or phrase: portillon anti-vol|
|also known as "portiques magnétiques/electroniques" - the type used in stores at the check-out for security purposes (the alarm is triggered by a tag). Maybe it is because it's Friday afternoon, but I just can't think what we call this in the UK !|

The magnetic fields generated by anti-theft gates at shop exits can affect pacemakers and other devices with potentially fatal results, doctors have warned. … In the first report, a 72-year-old man, who had a defibrillator to automatically shock his heart whenever it beats irregularly, suffered four unnecessary shocks as he stood close to an anti-shoplifting gate in a bookshop … In the other case, two doctors looked at the reasons behind a 30-year-old woman with a pacemaker's problem.
She felt nauseous, breathless, and dizzy whenever she passed through electronic surveillance gates at shops.
They discovered that the anti-theft devices made her pacemaker send out the wrong signals.
They said: "With the increasing use of both implantable defibrillators and anti-theft surveillance devices, potentially serious interactions may be more common in the future unless preventive measures are undertaken."
It is estimated that 400,000 electronic anti-theft surveillance devices are present in stores, libraries and other locations worldwide.
