ECT Machine up for Auction

At Gowans Auctions, an item of interest has appeared for sale that may be attributed to Willow Court.

The Unit is listed for Friday 14/12/18 and is a Camelec Electronics PTY. LTD Convulsive Therapy Unit.

alt

The unit appears to be a portable one and probably dates around the late 1950's and early 1960's.

A reliable source has stated that some staff members have indicated that they had something like this unit on Ward 4 in the early 60's when the Ward was a admission and treatment Ward.

alt

I have not pulled the unit from its casing but from the outside there seems to be no markings or solid evidence that indicates this unit was utilized at Willow Court, but there is a fair chance that it may have.

Let me know if you have used or seen this unit at Willow Court.
