No one likes going to the doctor nowadays. Even if you forget about the cost of health insurance, no one likes being probed and examined, even if it”s for their own good. Apparently, it used to be a lot scarier.

After looking at some of these vintage medical devices, I”m very happy to be living in the modern era. Some of these things are seriously horrifying, like #9. I would not want that anywhere near me.

1. Ice-cube mask.
