The R (7/9)

List item

You might have heard of this one. This torture tool was designed specifically with the intent to rip and tear each and every part of the victim’s body systematically and slowly. Firstly, the victim’s exterior limbs would be fastened to rollers on each end of the rack. After ensuring that the victim had been secured firmly around the device, the torturer would rotate the rollers on their axis by way of a lever, which would stretch the victim’s hip, legs, knees, ankles, arms and forearms to the point of dislocation. One of the most brutal aspects was the distinct “popping” sound that the device was recorded to make when the bones had been extracted almost completely, and the machine was pushed to its furthest physical limits.
