Bed Helps Blood Circulate (Mar, 1937)

Bed Helps Blood Circulate
OFFERING almost immediate relief to heart victims a new motor-driven bed, which rocks the patient in teeter board fashion, has been developed for hospital use. It is the belief of leading medical practitioners that the rocking effect of the “Vasocillator,” as the bed is called, will bring persons suffering from a heart attack through the crisis substaining them until the heart is once more able to function normally.

    Didn’t they use these to allow polio patients to breathe without an iron lung?
