Limb Positioning Equipment Assists Surgeons

Category: 

During elbow, hand and shoulder procedures, surgeons often require the patient’s arm to remain raised and precisely positioned. New pneumatically-powered articulating equipment can support and provide traction for the heaviest limbs, thereby eliminating the need for an additional surgical aide during the procedure. Positioning is instantaneously controlled by the surgeon by use of a foot pedal. Clippard’s stainless steel cylinders provide the force in an intensifier circuit that unlocks the mechanical mechanisms for this innovative medical engineering company.

The First Miniature Pneumatic Application

Category: 

The first need for miniature pneumatics was for the automation of testing RF coils. Leonard Clippard searched for the right components...  they didn't exist.  So he invented a line of miniature cylinders, fittings and valves and pioneered miniature pneumatics as we know them today.
