1940's Electroshock Therapy Unit

785.00

Fortunately I came across another electroshock therapy Reiter Unit from the 1940’s. This one is same model as the last one I had listed but the wooden case more in tact and works just as well. I put in a new fuse and it fired up. Also comes with a facsimile of the original operating instructions . Comes with leads and original rubber head band. Foot pedal trigger operates machine and timer to gauge dosage.

Below are some claims from Rieter:

This invention relates to a new and useful method and apparatus for use in shock therapy. An object of the invention is to change the customary procedure in giving patients shock treatments so that with minimum dosage least brain destruction is caused; minimum confusion ensues; minimum apnea or none at all may be resultant; similarly minimum or zero anoxia is caused; and controlled after effects may be achieved.

A further object is to provide simple, eflicient, economical, easily operated means for the treatment of manic depressives, schizophrenics,

melancholics, paranoiacs, etc., and for the effective relief of ailments such as hyper-tension, to produce narcosis with small dosage, to produce hypnotic states, and slumber, and to produce minimum physical reactions without the use of drugs.
