Scientifically Amazing!Flag review
- The Psychograph: a Phrenology reading that measures the size of bumps on the head to determine one's personality. - The Vibratory Chair: strapping a patient a seat, then shaking them around violently to cure intestinal problems. - Vacuum Breast Enlargers: cones placed over the breasts and powered by a foot pump to enhance the bust size. Busts never grew, but the device was known to leave bruising. - Prostate Warmer: inserted into the rear, this device delivered an electric shock that was supposed to "warm things up" in the bedroom. - The Fluoroscope: a large machine that used an x-ray to determine shoe size. This was banned 10 years later after discovering the machines exposed users to toxic amounts of radiation.
