Medical Electricity



DR. LEWIS JONES was chiefly responsible for raising medical electricity to its present honourable position. He rescued it from the depths of disrepute into which it had been thrust by the hands of charlatans. The best years of his life were devoted to this work; by painstaking study he sifted the real from the sham, and by original investigation and patient experiment introduced many new features in well-known electrical procedures. He showed a readiness to adopt new methods of treatment once he had convinced himself of their value. It was owing to the influence of Prof. Leduc, of whom he spoke in terms of affection and admiration almost verging upon reverence, that he first realised the great possibilities of ionic medication.
