Versatile Modular Aolaipod system is a famous rescue system,the complete Versatile Modular Aolaipod System can be rigged as a:
AMonopod makes use of a single leg to form the compression member.
2.A-frame (bipod) An A-frame makes use of two legs to form two compression members.
3.Sideways A-frame Two legs positioned close to parallel with the load line. The SA-frame is tilted to ensure that the resultant direction remains focused at a point that is offset from the alignment of the legs.
4.Tripod Tripods make use of three legs all of which are in compression.
5.Quadpod The Quadpod allows for greater versatility and stability combining 4 legs into one system. A Quad Plate is required to ensure stability of the entire system.
6.Lazy Leg or Easel Leg Tripod A lazy leg or easel leg tripod is similar to a regular tripod. A lazy leg tripod is constructed as an A-frame with an additional leg known as the lazy leg. The angle and length of the lazy leg is set so that the resultant force and direction can be managed.
7.Handrail monopod A single leg can be used to form a compression member that will help support a handrail.
A bridge make use of four legs that are all in compression and a bridge that spans between two sets of two legs. They add a spanning capability that is well suited to trench rescue and confined space applications. A trolley is fitted to the bridge. The trolley is hauled back and forth along the beam using the trolley positioning line. This is a single person operation.
