Restoration Robotics (NASDAQ:HAIR) has launched a robotic intelligent system that offers precise, minimally invasive, repeatable hair harvesting and implantation uses in one platform.
The Artas iX robotic hair restoration system has a 3-camera stereoscopic vision system with 44-micron resolution and a 7-axis robot. It has a compact, motorized, battery-powered, portable and adjustable procedure chair for increased patient comfort and clinical versatility that can be used ergonomically in multiple aesthetic procedures.
Restoration Robotics (San Jose, Calif.) designed the new system to deliver high-quality procedural analysis, precision, repeatability, and clinical workflow efficiency for hair restoration. It will reduce the more labor-intensive aspects of hair restoration procedures as well as clinical fatigue and case time, according to Robert M. Bernstein, MD, clinical professor of dermatology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University and founder of a hair transplant facility in New York City.
