Violet rays are antique medical devices claimed to be useful in electrotherapy. They use a combination disruptive discharge coil construction with an interrupter to apply a high voltage, high frequency, and low current to the human body for therapeutic purposes. Their basic construction was invented by Nichola Tesla prior to 1900, who introduced their first prototypes at the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893. Most of the antique violet rays in the US were produced before the Depression era and some of the larger US manufacturers of violet rays were Renulife, Fitzgerald and Fisher. From the American Medical Association's Historical Health Fraud & Alternative Medicine Collection:The device we are most often asked about is the Violet Ray Generator, sometimes called an "ultra violet device." Tens of thousands of these devices were sold for home use between about 1915 and 1950 under brand names such as Masters, Elco and Renulife. Literature accompanying the devices claimed to cure just about everything including heart disease, paralysis, wry neck and writers cramp! Geissler tubes of various shapes with a transformer assembly to activate them, designed to apply an intermittent ray discharge to the body. Condition: Good cosmetic and working condition.
