The first medical treatments with electricity in London have been recorded as far back as 1767 at Middlesex Hospital in London using a special apparatus. The same was purchased for St. Bartholomew’s Hospital only ten years later. The record of uses other than being therapeutic is not clear, however Guy’s Hospital has a published list of cases from the earlier 1800s. Golding Bird at Guy’s brought electrotherapy into the mainstream in the mid-19th century. In the second half of the 19th century the emphasis moved from delivering large shocks to the whole body to more measured doses, the minimum effective.
