While describing the technological trajectory, from 1987 to 2006, of a bloster used for cranium neurosurgical interventions become explicit the innovations made to it; aldo is revealed the social impact of its use in the Neurosurgery Services of the Manuel Ascunce Dopmenech Hospital of Camaguey province. It is valued that the improvement of this equipment guaranteed a better quality of surgical process and its resuts. The innovators enunciate the way of coupling it with other surgical technologies, such as the stereostatic frame and Leyla ´ s brain separators, as well as the independent use of one of its parts in the treatment of cervical luxofractures. All these innovations, compared to the innitial technology, allow to enlarge the range of explotation of the bloster and transform it into a newsworthy equipment
