    A novel design for a long-period passive vertical suspension system based on a torsion crank linkage is presented together with proof-of-concept measurements. A working range of centimetres and periods in excess of 20 s were obtained in agreement with theory. The design is cascadable with a horizontal isolator for 3D isolation.
