Who invented the ladder?

With the evolution of nature, human beings have gradually embarked on a different evolutionary path from other animals. In order to survive in harsh natural environment and escape the attack of many ferocious animals, climbing became the need of survival and safety of early human beings. As a result, early humans used climbing trees and natural slopes as auxiliary conditions for climbing. Human ancestors were inspired by natural conditions, and the rudiments of ladders came into being.

According to the views of scholars in various countries, the generation of ladders or stairs is inspired by the above two aspects, forming the trunk method and the slope method. The former is a step ladder, the latter is a step. With the development of human civilization, ladders and steps have become essential functional conditions in buildings with floors.

As a tool, small ladder appeared in ancient times. The original meaning of stepped word-making is a strip-shaped multi-level wooden instrument which is easy to climb. It is not difficult to see from the writing and interpretation of ancient Chinese characters that this is a tool for human climbing. In modern times, it gradually evolved into many different forms and uses. There are outdoor, indoor, fixed, mobile, civil, engineering, military, commercial and so on. With the development of human civilization and material prosperity, ladders have already entered thousands of households.

A ladder is a tool for climbing height by force. Ladders are daily necessities. The tool is edged by two long and thick rods, which cross the cross bar suitable for climbing, and is used for climbing. The ladder is divided into lifting single ladder and lifting herringbone ladder.
