The VRS is designed for the rescue of one person by another individual unassisted.
The VRS is for use on a person who has had a fall arrested and is left hanging on a lanyard, webbing or wire rope line.
The faller may be raised or lowered to a safe position.
When the faller is raised the rescuer has a 4:1 mechanical advantage, which reduces the effort required.
The upper pulley wheels lock when the faller is being lowered.
This increased friction allows the rescuer to lower the faller effortlessly.
A rescue pole is used to ‘fish’ for the fallers’ harness attachment point.
The rescue pole is sturdy and adjustable.
The rescue karabiner has a large opening which assists with locating the attachment point.
The VRS may be attached to front or rear attachment point on a harness.
