Research Facts
Wappler Cabinet was a popular cure-all device in the beginning of the 20th century. Sometimes referred to as the High-Frequency Machine, it generated an electrical current which was administered to the affected area of the human body via conductive wands. This 'intra cellular massage' was deemed a beneficial health treatment which could cure a number of diverse afflictions such as neurasthenia and headache, as well as correct malnutrition, heal wounds and "purify the blood". The Wappler Cabinet was sometimes used together with a conductive electric chair in a treament called auto-condensation. In this procedure the patient sat on a chair lined with sheets of metal, sometimes with or without conductive metal spheres at armrests.
