Why were chainsaws invented?

It is reported that the chainsaw was originally invented to help with childbirth.

According to Pharmacy Times, prior to the widespread use of cesarean section during childbirth, a surgical procedure called a symphysiotomy was used, during which: “The pubic symphysis, which is a joint above the vulva, covered and connected with cartilage and reinforced ligaments and tendons are cut to expand the pelvis and make the delivery process a little more likely.”

At the end of the 18th century, Scottish doctors John Aitken and James Jeffrey developed a prototype chainsaw for this procedure. This version of the chainsaw was powered by a handle.

At the end of the 19th century, the chainsaw was mechanized, and in 1905, the mechanized chainsaw was adopted by the forestry industry.

This information certainly shocked many TikTok users who Googled this question as part of a viral trend, and many of them scored thousands of likes and views for their reaction.
