Antique Quack Medical Induction Coil Shock Electropathic Instrument:
Up for offers today is what I believe to be an antique Quack Medical Induction Coil device, perhaps used for "electropathic shock" therapy in the 1930's or prior. There are no identifying marks on this item, but the base is made of wood and the top plate that everything is mounted on is perhaps bakelite, but I am not sure. The dimensions of the piece are 9.75" x 11" and about 3" tall at the highest point. As you can see in the photos, there is some wear, and a small tear in the material that is wrapped around the coil. Theinduction coil, from what I've read, isfor the purposes of applying high voltage, low current to the body. The adjustable rod (second to the last photo)varies the intensity of the shock.
