How SkySaver Works
The SkySaver Rescue Backpack looks just like a regular backpack, but contains a patented Controlled Descent Device (CDD) that utilizes a redundant centrifugal- and friction-based braking system to lower the user to the ground. It does so at a comfortable and steady rate of 6 feet / 2 meters per second.
Using SkySaver, the evacuation itself will take less than 30 seconds and an entire rescue operation will only take a matter of minutes, eliminating the need for rescue professionals or costly on-site helicopters.
The External CDD solution functions just like the backpack apart from the fact that the Controlled Descent Device is external and is hooked up to a harness.
