Enhanced Support / Expansion Clamp

Enhanced Support
Enhanced Support

After the natural disasters of earthquake, landslide and debris flow occurred, many of the wounded were crushed under the rubble, when timely and efficient rescue is especially important. Traditional four-jaw hydraulic clamp is limited in range and space to move big ruins, delaying the rescue work. Enhanced Support is a new type of four-jaw hydraulic clamp that can be connected for using. Its number can be decided by the space size of ruins. The enough space gives the injured a greater chance of survival and hope.
