I found this picture of a Roto-Matic on a website of abandoned locations. This one is in an abandoned hospital in Detroit. What I'm curious about is did Eureka make these special for hospital use (as Electrolux did with the hospital G) or was this something the hospital itself cobbled together?

A unit made for barber shops Jimmy Martin used to have one It attaches to a clipper and sucks up the hair as you cut it
