Electricity and health

Health, beauty and power

Since electricity was discovered it has been used for treating illness often using a mixture of superstitious elements and new efficient treatments. The exhibition on Electricity and health is on the first floor in hall 8.
You can learn how batteries (voltaic cross) were believed to have a positive effect on the body, and you may see how electric treatments 100 years ago were done by means of machines for induction and galvanization.

Around 1900 treatments by means of light and heat with arc-lamps and other electric lamps were invented by the Nobel price winner Niels Finsen for his famous Finsen Institute in Copenhagen.
