HODGKINSON HEALTH MACHINE, 1923

An electrotherapy device incorporating an induction coil. The coil creates medium voltages that are transmitted to the patient by two flat electrodes on the base.

Electrotherapy is a form of treatment whose basic aim, when used as a physical therapy, is to heal by stimulating activity in wasted or damaged muscles, and to promote healing by the increase of circulated blood in those areas. It can and has been used for the relief of pain, and for minor operations such as the removal of ulcers and cysts.
