The Rescue Genius a tool for creating mechanical advantage without the need for pulleys. It is used as an integral part of a rescue system sometimes described as a ‘short-lift long-lower’ system. This rescue system would also incorporate an appropriate descender and rope of
a suitable length.
The Rescue Genius can also be used for tensioning ropes for example a high line or speed line. Tests show that it is possible to achieve up to 300kg of line tension in such a system. DO NOT ARTIFICIALLY INCREASE THE LEVERAGE -THIS COULD CAUSE THE LEVER HANDLE TO BREAK.
The descender acts as both a progress capture device and a lowering device. The type of descender used has an effect on the efficiency of the lifting system. Tests show that the Genius offers an average mechanical advantage between 3:1 and 4:1 depending on the descender used. Please contact us for more information.
