American neurologist and founder of radionics, Albert Abrams designed a diagnostic tool with which a patient's electromagnetic radiation (also known as biocurrents) could be measured. This was done by connecting the person, a piece of diseased tissue, a droplet of blood, or a even lock of hair to a variable resistor. This tool was in the form of a box hence the name the Abrams box, also known as the black box. Abrams called it the Biodynamometer.
Abram's methods were the subject of ridicule by the medical and scientific community. Following Abram's death his work was continued in California by Ruth Drown, who developed new instrumentation. However the Food & Drugs Administration (FDA) of California condemned a not scientifically viable. This was despite the apparent evidence and testimony of many patients.
Other versions of the Abrams box are the Emanometer and the Rae Potency Simulator.
