Zvonimir Rudomino was a guest on the TV Show “At the Edge of Science” hosted by Krešimir Mišak, on the topic of Bioelectric Medicine. The topics discussed include historical electrotherapy treatments, Dr. Royal Raymond Rife’s plasma antenna based devices, Dr. Georges Lakhovsky’s Multiple Wave Oscillator (MWO) and the possibilities of using bioelectrical medical devices in the modern medical treatments of cancer, leukemia and infectious diseases like AIDS. Broadcast on the 28th October 2013 on channel HRT3 of the Croatian Radiotelevision (Croatian national television and radio network).
RT17 Innovative Electrotherapy (Bioelectric) Medical Devices
When implemented properly, use of various types of electrical currents, magnetic, electric and electromagnetic (EM) fields, allows for direct modification of cellular metabolism of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Additionally, problems with varying rate of absorption into various tissues inherent in both modern and traditional pharmacopeia based therapies are largely, although not entirely, overcome by using tissue-penetrating EM fields. A new approach to medical therapies is indeed possible.
Dr. Georges Lakhovsky’s Multiple Wave Oscillator (MWO)
Multiple Wave Oscillator of Dr. Georges Lakhovsky is one of historical electrotherapy devices whose history is riddled with speculations, rumours and lot of hearsay. It is often claimed that MWO could easily treat cancer and rejuvenate body and is a cure for all – a sort of electrotherapy apparatus panacea. Historically speaking and by the words of the Dr. Lakhovsky himself, MWO in some cases cured some forms of cancer and other illnesses and in other cases (usually later stages of disease) it did little to help the condition.
Dr. Royal Raymond Rife’s Beam Ray Type of Device
This is a version of Rife Beam Ray device based on publicly known general specifications. We found several available schematics which in our case proved to be inadequate and sometimes contradictory. In reality, classical LC oscillators of Hartley type used in original Rife Beam Ray clinical devices proved to be somewhat unstable and rather sensitive to capacitive coupling with sides of metallic enclosure. In order to facilitate manufacturing of this experimental device we modified existing schematics on several points.

Design and Manufacturing of Historical Electrotechnical Replicas
We use modern materials and manufacturing technologies in a way that provides authenticity on the technical and aesthetic level.
A number of functional replicas of Nikola Tesla’s inventions were designed and manufactured for Tesla Memorial Centre in Smiljan and Technical Museum in Zagreb. Those replicas include two-phase induction motor, large Tesla’s Egg of Columbus, models of Tesla’s bladeless turbine, Tesla coil etc. We also design and manufacture other historical replicas that can be made functional or non-functional for various exhibitions, museums and private collections. In fact, historical replicas made by our company were exhibited at various museums and institutions in Madrid, Bratislava, Helsinki, Vienna, Seoul and even UNESCO.
Functional Replica of Tesla’s Induction Motor
Nikola Tesla’s first patent regarding AC induction motor was granted in 1888. This motor is a working replica of the Tesla’s original 2-phase induction motor. It is exhibited in the Tesla Memorial Centre in Smiljan, Croatia.
Functional Replica of Classic Tesla Coil
A Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit invented by Nikola Tesla around 1891, which is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity. This working replica of the Tesla coil is exhibited in Tesla’s Memorial Centre in Smiljan, Croatia.
Functional Replica of Tesla’s Egg of Columbus
Tesla first demonstrated Egg of Columbus in 1893 at the World’s Columbian Exposition. We manufactured two working replicas of the Tesla’s Egg of Columbus, largest in the world both in their size and weight. They are exhibited at Tesla’s Memorial Centre, Smiljan and in Historical Museum of Croatia, Zagreb.
Replica of Sir Joseph Wilson Swan’s Lamp
Sir Joseph Wilson Swan was a British physicist and chemist who demonstrated a working light bulb during a lecture in Newcastle in 1878. Swan’s lamp consisted of enclosed glass bulb from which air was evacuated, platinum leads and thick carbon rod as a light emitting element. During the operation of Swan’s light bulb gasses trapped inside the porous structure of carbon rod were released and a soot deposit would gradually form on the inside surface of the glass bulb thus significantly shortening its life time. Subsequently Swan and Thomas Alva Edison formed the “Edison and Swan Electric Light Company Ltd.” in England, which produced incandescent light bulbs.
This replica is designed to be made entirely functional with the addition of appropriate power supply.
Non-Functional Replica of Sir Humphry Davy’s Arc Lamp
Sir Humphry Davy was a chemist who invented the very first electrical lighting lamp in 1809. He used carbon rods between which a strong electrical current produces an electrical arc emitting bright white light that is sufficient enough for practical uses. For his discovery of practical electrical lighting system he was knighted in 1812 and later he hired young Michael Faraday as an assistant. At a later date the technology of electrical arc lamps progressed to the level when the brightness of the electrical arc was powerful enough to be used as a lighthouse beacon. This is a non-functional replica of the arc lamp that was put into service in the South Foreland Lighthouse off the Kent coast in 1858. It was designed by a British engineer Frederic Hale Holmes.
Replica of Alessandro Volta’s Cell (Voltaic Pile)
Alessandro Volta invented this earliest form of battery in 1799. It consists of alternating layers of zinc and copper disks separated by a thick layer of paper. When the pile is immersed into appropriate electrolyte like sulphuric acid it generates electrical potential and consequent electrical current. It is a replica of voltaic pile that Alessandro Volta presented to Michael Faraday in 1814 during his visit to Milan, Italy.
This replica is designed so that it could be made entirely functional.
Replica of Alexander Graham Bell’s First Telephone
Alexander Graham Bell made the first telephone in 1876. It was the first electrical device to ever transmit speech sounds at a distance in an intelligible way. It took many more years of further development and refinement of the design before the telephones were ready for wider public use but even with this early device he embodied all of the key principles that were later used in all subsequent designs.This replica is based on Bell’s original notes and later reconstructions.
While it is crude in its appearance in the same way as was the original it could be modified and manufactured entirely functional.
Replica of Michael Faraday’s Induction Ring
Michael Faraday conducted experiments using an iron ring to which he wound up two separate coils of copper wire. Faraday then used a large electrical battery to energise one coil and he connected a galvanometer to the other coil. In 1831 he detected a brief movement of the galvanometer at the moment he connected and disconnected the battery, proving that electrical energy can be transmitted across space by use of mutual magnetic induction. He also proved that the voltage levels can be transformed. Virtually all subsequent, more modern transformers use the same principles that Faraday originally discovered.
This replica is based on the original Faraday’s design using the same materials. With the addition of appropriate power supply and a galvanometer it will function the same way as the historical Faraday’s apparatus.
Replica of Michael Faraday’s Electrical Generator
After his initial discovery of the electromagnetic induction in his experiments with the induction ring, Faraday later experimented with an iron magnet moving back and forth through the centre of the helical coil made of insulated copper wire. He observed movement of the galvanometer connected to the coil each time he passed the magnet through the centre of the generator coil. Thus he discovered that motional magnetic field produces electrical voltage in the generator coil and consequent electrical current in the electrical load. Virtually all subsequent designs of electromechanical generators use the same principles that Faraday discovered in his experiments with this setup.
This replica will function the same way as the original Faraday’s electrical generator.
