Georges Lakhovsky (born Georgei Lakhovsky; Russian: Георгий Лаховский; 17 September 1869 – 31 August 1942) was a Belarusian-French engineer, scientist, author and inventor. His controversial medical treatment invention, the Multiple Wave Oscillator, is described as having been used by him in the treatment of cancer.


Lakhovsky was born in Ilya, Minsk Region, Russian Empire (now Belarus). After graduating from the Engineering Institute of Odessa, he went to France in 1894. There he attended lectures in physics at the Sorbonne University, and studied anatomy at the Medical Faculty of the University of Paris. After a railway accident, in which he almost became a victim, he decided to investigate the causes of this accident. As a result of this investigation. he created engineering proposals for improving mounting rails to the sleepers. This proposal was adopted, and Lakhovsky got a job.

In 1911, when he was seriously ill, doctors predicted his quick death. Instead of falling into severe depression, Lakhovsky completely immersed himself in the work, wanting to make use of every moment of life allotted to him. In order to test his theory of cellular oscillation, he began studying the effect of short electromagnetic waves on biological objects. As a result of these studies, and later, when his own disease had receded, he created his own design bulbs, which were issued by the French patent (patent number 601,155 on 10/18/1924) and German (patent number 427,695 on 26/05/1925) patent offices. In 1923, he constructed a shortwave oscillator (from 2 to 10 meters away—at that time, a great achievement), which allowed to prove his theory of cellular oscillation.[2]

Georges Lakhovsky published books and articles that claimed and attempted to demonstrate that living cells emit and receive electromagnetic radiations at their own high frequencies.

In 1925 Lakhovsky wrote a Radio News Magazine article entitled "Curing Cancer With Ultra Radio Frequencies."[3] In 1929, while in France, he was the author of a book "The Secret of Life: Electricity, Radiation and Your Body," (French) in which he claimed and attempted to demonstrate that good or bad health was determined by the relative health of these cellular oscillations, and bacteria, cancers, and other pathogens corrupted them, causing interference with these oscillations. It was translated into English in 1935. Numerous images (with before, during, and after photographs) in the book ostensibly depict Lakhovsky in a Paris, France hospital conducting clinical research, treating cancer patients .[4]

During the works on invention of new device he referred to studies on the theme of radiance which emitted the fresh cut of plants conducted by other French scientists such as Jacques-Arsène d'Arsonval[5]. Georges Lakhovsky invented the Multiple Wave Oscillator, which he claimed would revitalize and strengthen the health of cells. The device consisted of two broadband antennae (a sending and a receiving pair) composed of concentric sets of curved open-ended copper pieces suspended / held in place by silk threads, two metal stands to hold the two antennae, Oudin coil(s), and electromagnetic spark / pulse generator. In June 1934 he was awarded U.S. patent 1962565[6] for the device. In the middle of 1931 he tried the operation of his device at Paris' hospital. With the help of it he came way to treat some patients with cancer disease.[7]. In 1932, Georges Lakhovsky used aluminium and in some models multi metal, air filled tubes bent into nested circular dipoles for the antennae in his Multi-Wave Oscillator.[4]

At age 72, in 1942, Lakhovsky was struck by a limousine. Three days later, he died of his injuries in the hospital .

Alternative medicine[edit]

Today, many alternative medical equipment manufacturers and retailers claim to sell revised versions of Georges Lakhovsky's Multiple Wave Oscillator.[citation needed] Recently three original multiple wave oscillators were discovered once belonging to Dr. Boris Vassileff. These machines were produced during the years 1932–42 by the Laboratoires C.O.L.Y.S.A, Georges Lakhovsky's former company in Paris. A complete technical analysis study has been done by MultiWaveResearch.[citation needed]


Lakhovsky married Louise Anne-Marie Reinacle. Their son Serge Jean Jacques Lakhovsky, was a chemist.
