Carrying aids allow safer and easier (than head loading or hand carrying)
carrying of cargo by people.
Carrying aids include packframes, the chee-ke, and carrying yokes.
The packframe uses shoulder straps and a hip belt to transfer weight.
The chee-ke is a Korean pack frame with wheels. It is pulled as a handcart
on smooth surfaces and carried in rough terrain.
A carrying yoke transfers the weight to the shoulders. Often cargo is
carried in buckets with the carrying yoke. Two people with carrying
yokes can carry a litter/stretcher holding an injured person or bulky
materials like corn stalks. A carrying yoke can be carved from a log, made
from a board, or made from bamboo and webbing or rope.
