This is an example of an electrotherapy machine made by the Electro-Neurotone Company Limited during the 1920s. This medical apparatus first developed in the late 1800’s and was used by doctors to administer mild electrical shocks to their patients. Electricity was a new phenomenon at the time and people believed that small amounts of electrical shock could cure everything from Nervous diseases to toothaches. It was thought that this increased the blood flow to the cells and promoted healing by stimulating activity in damaged muscles.
