Suspension relief ladder

Suspension relief ladder
When a worker slips while wearing fall protection, he will be saved from injury. But the next problem is the need to rescue them quickly to avoid suspension trauma caused by hanging vertically without being able to raise their legs. The new Hy-Safe Suspension Relief Ladder helps a suspended worker raise his legs to a horizontal position, which can help delay the onset of suspension trauma by keeping the blood actively circulating. The ladder comes packed into a Velcro-closed wrap. When a worker falls, she deploys the suspension relief ladder, which is independently attached to the harness's D-ring. The worker then places her feet into the webbing "rungs" and leans back, bringing the legs into a more horizontal position. The higher the legs can be positioned, the better the chance of keeping the blood circulating. After use, the ladder can be re-packed and re-used.
