Nikola Tesla (1856 – 1943) was the greatest genius of all time. There is no inventor in the world comparable to him, so much so that many have wondered how a “human” could have had such a fantasy and ability to imagine and then make devices that in some cases we are still unable to reproduce today.
Everything about the world of electricity and electronics that we have today, is based on his inventions.
In the world of electromagnetic medicine, Tesla introduced discoveries, innovations and experiments that were the basis of the most important researchers of the last century.
On November 17, 1898, writing in The Electrical Engineer, Vol. XXVI, No. 550, on the therapeutic applications of electricity, he wrote:
“One of the early observed and remarkable features of the high frequency currents, and one which was chiefly of interest to the physician, was their apparent harmlessness which made it possible to pass relatively great amounts of electrical energy through the body of a person without causing pain or serious discomfort. This peculiarity which, together with other mostly unlooked-for properties of these currents I had the honor to bring to the attention of scientific men first in an article in a technical journal in February, 1891, and in subsequent contributions to scientific societies, made it at once evident that these currents would lend themselves particularly to electro-therapeutic uses.”
Some of the most famous inventors of technologies for the treatment of incurable diseases at the time were inspired by his ideas. Thanks to these Pioneers, today we can have an immense variety of devices which, thanks to the application of electromagnetic fields, are able to bring benefits to any health problem.
