    I've been building up one of the Phlox Medical scanners for myself and I'm working on finishing off the hero Hypospray from Enterprise that I also scratchbuilt with added machined aluminium parts.
    I'd like to round out my Enterprise medical kit with the Defibrillator inducer. They were used as a pair and can be seen in a few episodes.


    The prop looks like it was a conversion of a found item.

    A good shot of the profile of this prop can be seen in Dear Doctor (Thanks to Trekcore!)

    The back of the prop has a battery access slide panel with raised grooves which are part of the plastic body, which is another indicator that it was based on a found item.



    If anyone could shed some light on what the found item is I would be very grateful.


    Thanks in advance.

    I'm here on a hunch, but maybe it's an electric lint cutter, I have a similar shaped device at home.

    Any chance you could post a photo of your lint cutter please?

    Thanks

    Wow, they would be big headphones.
    Trying to work out what the round button on the top would be for.

    Do you know the manufacturer please?

    Thanks

    Judging by the need for batteries, they'd either be wireless headphones, or noise cancelling headphones, so the button might have been to enable the noise cancellation, or be related to wireless functionality. The extra circuitry for either of those features would also explain the larger size, if they are in fact headphones.

    I wanna take a wild guess and say it was probably some thing a pregnant mother mother would use to listen her baby's heartbeat. Like an angel sounds fetal Doppler.
    You can still plug headphones into it though.

    Thanks for finding that.
    It's close but not quite exactly the same.

    Thank you to all who have chipped in and taken a guess at what the found item was, I appreciate the help.

    A BIG THANK YOU to jhk1982 for finding out what it was. I really appreciate the help. I just bought the correct model from e-bay.

    My Enterprise era Medical prop set is getting more complete thanks to helpful RPF members.
