This one was made in 1954, but similar items have been around since the 1930’s.
It was used to treat skin conditions such as excema or exema (sic), and dermatitis as well as other skin complaints.
The voltage was produced from small batteries which would be contained within the box, the patient would feel a tingling sensation when they passed the implements over the effected area.
This item can be compared with the modern day “TENS” machine.
