It quickly Removes those "Back Aches" peculiar to LADIES. hmmmmmmmm ... I guess they are referring to the ones with large "frontages" 😝

That can cause backaches. But I'd think it would irritate the skin before soothing the muscles.

I suspect, like many of the devices of that era, that it removes those backaches by vibrating. Right, it's a back massager, really...

Apparently I need to go back to bed. I read it as "Dr. Scott's Electric Flesh EATING Brush"
