    That's what is today referred to as a TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) device. They are only available with a physician's prescription. Although they are considered safe when used under a doctor's care, they can be dangerous if used improperly--a homemade unit, doubly so.

    We cannot help you construct one.

    And it is illegal to construct one from someone else's patent, even if you aren't going to sell it. You're still stealing the idea and profiting from it (using it for free is profiting from it).
