The most advanced remote system helping to transform work within extreme
environments by using human-like dexterous hands instead of humans

Potential applications in:
• Sterile manufacturing in Pharma
• Nuclear industry
• Oil & Gas – Deepsea operations
• Space

Extreme Environments

• Health and safety risks to humans
• Limited working time
• Accidents in glovebox operations

Shadow’s Teleoperation Solutions
• Added safety layer between worker and hazard zone
• Exposure time  Operating time 
• System is intuitive, little need for reskilling
