A parachute is a device that allows one to fall from an airplane or other airborne transportation without risking bodily harm. It uses wind resistance to make the fall much slower.
Orbital skydivers carry compressed parachutes in their suits, to help land safely. (VOY: "Extreme Risk"; Star Trek Generations deleted scene)
After Jonathan Archer restored a damaged timeline, parachutes used by soldiers during World War II could be seen in the time stream as the timeline realigned itself. (ENT: "Storm Front, Part II")
