• Artas Robotic System
The ARTAS Robotic System harvests follicular units with low transection rates. Using sophisticated imaging technology and precision robotics, the ARTAS Robotic System dissects follicular units accurately and consistently, hundreds to thousands of times in a single session. The ARTAS Robotic System’s easy-to-use controls and proprietary algorithms result in a nearly undetectable donor area. Key features include:
- High-resolution digital imaging for rapid, micron-level targeting accuracy Image-guided robotic alignment for speed and precision beyond manual techniques
- Minimally invasive dissection that delivers healthy, intact grafts with nearly undetectable harvest sites
- Intuitive operation that shortens the learning curve and makes the procedure easier to perform
The ARTAS Robotic System enables hair restoration physicians with the power of advanced imaging and precision robotics. Every component in the system is precision engineered to work seamlessly and intuitively in your hands. As an extension of your clinical skill, the ARTAS Robotic System delivers the speed, accuracy and reproducibility to help you achieve better outcomes with every procedure.
Designed by medical imaging and robotic experts in collaboration with leading hair restoration surgeons, the ARTAS Robotic System combines high performance hardware with intelligent algorithms to optimize follicular unit harvesting.
With the ARTAS Robotic System, you can harvest follicular units with speed and precision far beyond manual techniques for efficient and consistent results.
Over the past decade, robotic procedures have advanced care in many surgical categories such as cancer surgery. Robotic systems are proven to assist surgeons with difficult, repetitive and precise surgical movements, reducing manual variability and improving outcomes. Their reproducible accuracy and precision has also enabled a shift to less invasive techniques that allow more patients to be treated and to have better experiences.
Building on the benefits of this robotic foundation, Restoration Robotics has brought robotic technology to a new level of sophistication and advancement – delivering safe, accurate and consistent results in hair restoration.
High-Resolution Digital Imaging
Visualizes the surface of the scalp in three dimensions with micron-level precision
Stereo digital imaging maps coordinates, angle orientation and direction for each follicular unit
Determines the density and distribution of follicular units
At 50 times a second, monitors and updates distinct parameters of each and every follicular unit
Intelligent algorithms set the alignment and depth for individual follicular unit harvesting
Calculated angle of approach minimizes transections by the two-needle system
Image-Guided Robotic Alignment
- High resolution visualization cameras provide input to dynamically maneuver the robotic arm
- The robotic arm can approach follicular units at virtually any angle to control the needle alignment with micron-level precision
- Dynamically compensates for patient movement during procedure using visual servoing
- Intelligent algorithms guide harvesting to maintain a natural looking appearance in the donor area
Minimally Invasive Dissection
The ARTAS® Robotic System’s proprietary dissection system produces healthy grafts with low transection rates.
- Consists of a sharp, bi-beveled inner needle nested inside an outer blunt dissection punch
- Small inner needle scores the skin’s surface
- Blunt outer punch then enters into the skin to separate the follicular unit from the remaining tissue
- Delivers a healthy, intact graft with harvest site limited to size of the inner needle
- Enhances dissection through uniform skin tension
- Fiducials define boundary of the surgical field
The ARTAS® Robotic Procedure
- Skin tensioner is placed on the trimmed donor area to keep the area taut
- High resolution visualization identifies follicular units on the surface of the patient’s skin and targets them for harvesting
- Image-guided robotic arm maneuvers and deploys the two-needle system, compensating for patient movement
- Inner needle scores the skin, then the dissecting punch separates the follicular unit from the remaining tissue
- Gentle suction lifts the dissected graft partially out of the scalp, so technicians can remove using forceps
- Grafts are manually transplanted in the desired scalp areas
