"A Violet wand (or sometimes Violet ray, or ultraviolet wand) is a device used for the application of low current, high frequency, high voltage electricity to the body using an arrangement similar to a Tesla coil. The purpose of the original violet ray devices were originally for electrotherapy, though there were few or no identified therapeutic benefits. Violet Ray devices of this era (broadly, prior to WWII) are popular among collectors of "quack" medical devices". (Wikipedia).
