McIntosh Electric Chair For Auto-Condensation Treatments
from Ringling Brother's Barnum & Bailey Collection
Many thanks to Dave for calling us about these!  Rita drove to Jacksonville to pick them up!

Auto-Condensation used d'Arsonval Currents to turn the patient into a high frequency high voltage capacitor
plate.  The treatment was proven to lower blood pressure - but can be very dangerous in untrained hands.
The effect was only temporary.

Note the sheet metal plate under the rubber pad!

I picked up this machine in Pompano Beach a few years back.
