Welcome to the fascinating and somewhat creepy world of antique medical quackery and electrotherapy devices. What follows are descriptions and pictures of the various types of devices that I (and others) have been able collect over the years. I am always interested in hearing from others who collect or appreciate such weirdness and I am especially interested in sharing info and pictures of devices others have in their collections.
Very interesting virtual museum of electrotherapy devices, such as the Faradic battery, Vitapulsar, and Radio Disease Killer, most of which were sold for home use in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Includes images and descriptions of the devices, as well as historical background information. The site includes several related essays, a bibliography, and links to other online collections.
