A violet ray is an antique medical appliance used during the early 20th century to discharge in electrotherapy. Their construction usually featured a disruptive discharge coil with an interrupter to apply a high voltage, high frequency, low current to the human body for therapeutic purposes.
Their basic construction was invented before 1900 by Nikola Tesla, who introduced his first prototypes at the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893.
