for this one you need these ankle shackles that are connected to chains and the chains are connected to a crank. The victim's ankles are placed in the ankle shackles and the torturer turns the crank, pulling the victim into split position. If this is used for interrogation, the crank can be turned as slowly or as quickly as the torturer wants.
The splits will be very painful, especially if the torturer turns and rests (to let the pain set in).
Well this consists of a wooden/metal/spiked frame that is in the shape of a human body doing a star jump that had lots of straps on it. The victim is strapped to the frame and if the frame is spiked, it will pierce the body. Otherwise, it is the perfect holding in place tool that a torture chamber can ever have.
A variation might include a drugged and spiked ball that is stuffed in the gentials.
The Breaking Wheel (Catherine's Wheel)
The victim is lashed upon a large wheel, with joints in paritcular places. They are then beaten with clubs, which combined with the pressure points of the spokes easily break bones and joints. The rubbery usless limbs are threaded through the spokes, and the wheel is placed up high for the victim to die of dehydration days later while being pecked at by birds. Mercy may be extended by strangulation of the victim after several blows, or a coup de grace.
A seventeenth-century chronicler wrote the victim looked like, "A sort of huge screaming puppet writhing in rivulets of blood, a puppet with four tentacles, like a sea monster, of raw, slimy and shapeless flesh mixed up with splinters of smashed bones."
This device is the opposite principle of the Duke of Exeter's daughter, more commonly known as the rack, and was created for the Tower of London as the rack was too difficult to move up and down the stairs. Instead of stretching the body, the victim is forced into a compressed kneel and the clamp tightened.
