Restoration Robotics Announces the Launch Of ARTAS Hair Studio™

10/25/2013

At this year's International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) conference in San Francisco (October 23-27), Restoration Robotics will introduce the ARTAS Hair Studio™, a new product that expands the clinical indication and capability of their revolutionary ARTAS® Robotic System. The ARTAS Hair Studio will enable a physician to design aesthetic recipient site patterns for a patient using a sophisticated 3-D computer generated model of the patient's head and scalp and create the recipient sites using the ARTAS Robotic System. As an initial step, the physician takes photographs and creates a 3-D image of the patient's head and face on a computer. The realistic image can be manipulated and rotated in all directions allowing the physician to view all aspects of the patient's balding pattern. With a stylus pen, the physician draws out the boundaries where the recipient site incisions will be made by the ARTAS Robotic System. During this process, he is able to define the angles, direction, density, distribution and randomness of each recipient site. And since the computer interface is viewable by the patient, as well as the physician, the patient has the opportunity to provide input into their own hair transplantation plan. Once the plan is created, it is programmed onto the ARTAS Robotic System, which follows the plan and creates the recipient sites onto the actual patient. “This is a major step forward for The ARTAS Robotic System,” said Miguel Canales, M.D., Medical Director and Sr Vice President, Restoration Robotics. “With the ARTAS Hair Studio, the patient works with his physician and has the unique opportunity to become much more involved with his own treatment. This will lead to a highly personalized result for each patient.” “The ARTAS Hair Studio brings the ARTAS System to a new level of excellence,” said Dr. James Harris, a world-renowned hair surgeon and director of the Hair Sciences Center of Colorado in Denver, CO. “This product will change the way doctors and their patients visualize hair transplantation and greatly improve the way it's implemented.” The ARTAS Hair Studio was developed in-house by Restoration Robotics and will be available for purchase in 2014. Current ARTAS Robotic Systems are upgradable.
