Background on Quack Electro Therapy

“The 20th century ushered in the electrical age - with patented light bulbs and automobiles came electromedical cures and executions. With improved electric generators, galvanism (static electricity generation) bloomed from nascent electric shock treatments in Parisian insane asylums to the all-American cure. George Beard’s and Alphonse Rockwell’s 1871 book on the fantastic medical uses of electricity was re-published in more than ten editions that culminated with the electric chair and the X-ray exhibited at the World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893 and the Pan-American Exposition in 1901 by McIntosh Electric and Victor Electric, respectively. Both companies went on to produce the “Medical Apparatus” console featured here. They boasted in numerous advertisements and publications, including the book offered with this lot, that positive and negative galvanic currents cured everything from gout and impotency to hysteria of the stomach and flat feet through polarized frequencies. By the late 1930s, electrotherapy was applied to the brain to alleviate severe depressions through the triggering of brief seizures. Many famous personages in the annals of history were the recipients of these electrical probes in a growing age of psychotherapy enlightenment.”
