I think that the "mystery device" is a canine powered respirator. First thing I noticed was the tube into the trachea of the lady sitting in the chair: I suspect that the running motion of the hound on the treadmill causes the pump on its back to move, thus working the respirator.

The telephone on the guys back is an ex-Soviet military device, this was and should be carried in a knapsack and was used in case of an urban emergency, like a street fight with rebels, the army would get into a civilians home, wire the device to the telephone lines and call in back up from HQ.

This method was abandoned in the early 80's for use of radio equipment.

that mystery device is a copy of an old child's toy. It had a small wooden ball hanging down that, when swung in a flat circle the dog would lean forward and the rabbit in turn goes further forward.
