ITRS Presentations

Through considerable ongoing research and analysis, Rigging for Rescue’s developers have methodically reviewed, tested, and evaluated numerous ropework techniques – often exposing assumptions about ropework that were pure myth and folklore. This data-based approach has led to the introduction of practical techniques that are gentle to the rope, patient, and rescuer-while maintaining high levels of safety.

Since 1986, Rigging for Rescue has continued to be at the forefront of research and testing on rope rescue systems. The leaders of Rigging for Rescue have been regular presenters at the International Technical Rescue Symposium – aka ITRS (formerly NATRS) – sharing research and testing on a variety of subjects ranging from rescue belays, to failure analysis of lanyards to new techniques like the Parallel Plaquettes

Included in this area of our website are recent research reports and video segments.
