“Magic Chair” for Beauty (Mar, 1936)
“Magic Chair” for Beauty
A recent fad in Paris (France) is Mecanotherapyâ€” literally mechanical medical treatmentâ€”to bring about health, slenderness and beauty. At least, it is liberally advertised to the seekers after all three, and is obtainable at a good price. It centers round the chair illustrated below and its numerous gadgets; which is said to obviate diet and exercise in reducing. It certainly seems like a wonderful invention if it will accomplish what it is supposed to do. The motors move the limbs and joints, instead of the subject’s doing so; and thereby, it is supposed, bring about the same results in building up muscles and removing fat.
