Electric Bath Fights Disease (Jun, 1932)
Electric Bath Fights Disease
SOME London hospitals are now equipped with the latest in scientific methods of combatting disease, the electro-therapeutic bath.
The diseased patient sits comfortably, as the photo below shows, with his hands and feet in small tubs. The artificial fever is produced in the body by the passage of an electric current which combats the disease germs and hastens recovery.
The electric current is run into the solution in the tubs through electrodes. The intensity of the current can be altered by rheostats on the control board shown in lower left corner of the photo.
