[IP] Static Electricity

I've written to MIT specialists the following:
We have a medical infusion pump motor running on Eveready 357 batteries. The 
motor turns a camshaft in short click spurts.  Some users of this pump think 
that static electricity can temporarily disable it. They believe it is 
specificaly the motor. They claim an engineering recomendation to wrap the 
equipment in clothes dryer static guard sheets. Do you have any proof  or 
contraindications as to the efficacy of this safeguard?

And will relay any response. I'd like to discuss the "touching metal" 
idea...heck its too involved. It must be "grounded" metal...well forget it. 
It doesn't "bother" me that you take precautions. But aren't our lives as 
diabetics filled with precautions. Lest there be any misunderstanding static 
electricity precautions here are unreasonable. I hesitate to use that word 
and I'm sorry for your feelings.
