Update 5/1/09 - The answer is: An Electraply quack medical device, according to the manual, it's a "pulsating machine used on the body for its therapeutic action and for administering electrical massage," patent number 1,789,758.

This used to be a electreat (the mechanical heart) it was used to relieve pains in your body by putting a small current through your body.It uses batteries & usually has a few more attachments with it. but will work the way it is. The handle is the ground & the roller part would be the positive. Is quite the gadget & can give you a wake up call if turned up.
