Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulator
In 1971, the first Rife machine to be approved was called the TENS machine. (Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulator) There are those who do not think it was a coincidence that this was the very year that Rife passed away, in part because the company that developed it was located in La Jolla, not 15 miles from where Rife had lived.
From 1950, Rife had a close associate by the name of John Crane.
Crane built instruments for Rife and was partnered with him until his death. After which, Crane attempted in earnest to build modern Rife instruments, and to debunk some of the wild speculation about the circumstances of Rife’s demise. Crane produced the first full function, transistorized frequency instruments, and the first to be digitally controlled. But Crane did not perform adequate tests. He assumed that transistors would be better, and that digital would be more accurate. He was wrong. Crane’s attempts were failures, producing only about 20 percent of the effects expected. Many charlatans copied Crane, and for this reason, accused Crane of lying about the frequencies used in the therapy.
John Wright Laboratories
By the time Wright Laboratories was inducted into this story, the Rife technique was at an all time low. John Crane had been arrested for mail fraud.
The few makers who stubbornly remained, Bob Beck, Don Tunney, and a handful of others, were making feeble machines, barely able to function at all, and persecution of users by federal authorities in plain violation of the US Constitution, was rampant.
Since paranoia was common among promoters, and transactions were typically conducted in secret by operatives in parking lots from the trunk of a car, John Wright did not have access to the people who used the machines he made. There was reason to fear. Fear that users would not be successful without any customer support of any kind.
Wright Labs began to produce a book called THE FREQUENCY INSTRUMENT, which was a compilation of applications used by Rife and Crane for many years. Wright Labs also increased the power and accuracy of their instruments to such a degree that it would be very difficult for users to be unsuccessful if they used them with any regularity.
In the mid 80’s, there was no market for a tiny, portable Rife machine. Simply not enough people knew anything about Rife, or his work. The few who did, wanted Model B, because it is the closest thing to what Rife actually made…only better.
We became inundated with Model B orders, and did not have time to pursue the Model A market.
Now 18 years later, the need for a small, powerful Rife machine is huge. Who wants to pay thousands for hardware that Model A doesn’t need in order to do the same job?
