Innovative applications: Leo, the robot simulating surgical operations

Small rotary dampers are commonly used on cars, but what about non-automotive applications?
Their dimensions and torques can be useful where precision is a must-have.

Small Rotary Dampers for medicine and surgery

Leo is an easy transportable and easy setup console which helps the surgical robotic diffusion perfectly simulating the feedback of a da Vinci® console created by Intuitive Surgical, Inc., a console that can perform minimally invasive surgery.

Inside it three different Cultraro dampers help with the motion control of the arms of Leo: opponing resistance to the movement, they help the user’s precision while operating.
