Design & Construction
At LKR we design, construct, characterize, and build new continuum robot prototypes. Our portfolio reaches from tendon actuated to tubular continuum robots and hybrid continuum robots. The use of compliant and soft materials allows for a wide spectrum of alternative mechanisms and actuation principles.
