Larkin Rescue Frame from Spelean is an uneven tetrahedron that can replace a tripod or a small rooftop derrick crane for personnel lifting / lowering.
Use of a Larkin Frame This workshop is designed for MR teams who support low level road side technical rescues such as gorge / canyon environments and extraction from flooded quarry’s, harbor areas or coastal cliffs. Gorge environments often involve highly technical extractions involving a range of equipment including suspended rope access systems. The Larkin Frame can in some situations take away the need for Tyrolean rope access systems. The Larkin Frame simply extends / cantilevers the rescuer and stretcher away from loose rock faces and difficult vegetation maximizing a clean extraction line.
It is also used on harbor walls or any other difficult water rescue situations. It is extensively used by Australian Search and Rescue teams, Scottish Cave Rescue and Tayside Fire and Rescue for situations where the only extraction route is up. Free Download Mp3 Songs Of Hindi Movie Veer Zaara.
