A later development of the work of Albert Abrams
(1863–1924) that employs therapeutic apparatus to produce
shortwave low-power electromagnetic and alternating magnetic
currents to correct disease conditions. Abrams believed that
diseases produced peculiar radiations, and that these radiations
in turn produce a reflex in living tissue that can be detected
by apparatuses and normalized by the appropriate electromagnetic
energy produced by other apparatuses.
In 1922 the College of Electronic Medicine was founded in
San Francisco. It was superseded in 1947 by the Electronic
Medical Foundation. The magazine Physio-Clinical Medicine,
started in 1916, later became the Electronic Medical Digest, reviewing
a wide range of developments relating to electromagnetic
theories and research in cell radiation and disease therapies.
