"The Dynamopath" electromedical apparatus for diagnosis and therapy, probably in "Radionics" (Abram's system), no maker marked, English, 1900-1930

The Dynamopath is an electromedical apparatus for diagnosis and therapy used in Radionics. Radionics is a form of energy treatment created by Dr. Albert Abrams (1863-1924). Abrams believed all life forms have their own electromagnetic fields. He claimed disease occurs when these are interfered with or disrupted. Each organ within the body has its own resonance or vibration. The Dynamopath machine measured these frequencies. It used a sample of hair or blood then transmitted healing vibrations back to the patient. Radionics is highly controversial. It is still practised.
