Abstract

Enid Anderson was the principal of the New Zealand School of Physiotherapy from 1946 to 1965. She is shown here demonstrating electrotherapy - the application of short-wave diathermy (the generation of heat in tissue by electromagnetic current) - to a group of Colombo Plan students. The Colombo Plan was a government initiative set-up as a part of a wider regional economic and social development plan for emerging Asian countries. Between 1956 and 1963 nineteen students trained at the School of Physiotherapy under this scheme.
