System

  ARTAS Robotic System with User Interface

Physician-assisted ARTAS® Robotic System

  Manually Operated System

Manually operated system*

Harvesting Method

  ARTAS Robot

  • Image-guided robotic alignment for precise graft dissection unmatched by manual techniques
  • Graft quality remains consistent throughout the procedure
  NeoGraft Handheld Drill

Handheld harvesting tool.* All harvesting is performed by punching out hairs by hand.

Upgradable Platform

 

Fully upgradable hardware and software

 

Limited to handpieces only

User Interface

  ARTAS User Interface

High resolution digital imaging provides unparalleled visual detail of Donor Area

  • Exceptional control of parameters such as spacing between harvests, dissection depths, and harvest angles to yield robust and healthy grafts
 

NONE. Depends entirely on human eye-hand coordination. Chance of human error and high degree of human fatigue.

The ARTAS Hair Studio™ Application

  ARTAS Hair Studio™

Advanced 3D modeling that transforms your patient consultation

  • An interactive individualized photograph-based tool
  • Illustrate your aesthetic vision to your patient
 

NONE

Recipient Site Making

  Robotic Recipient Site Making

Robotic Recipient Site Making

  • Natural looking site distribution
  • Control hair angles and direction parameters
  • Avoids damaging pre-existing hairs
 

NONE

Punch Type

 

Patented blunt dissection technique designed to produce minimal scarring and healthy grafts.

 

Uses sharp punch. May result in a greater risk of damage and transection (cutting a healthy graft rendering it unusable).

Suction / Vacuum

 

Utilizes suction / vacuum only during dissection process. The graft elevates above the scalp for ease of forcep extraction.

 

Utilizes continuous suction / vacuum to extract and transport the graft into a storage vial. This may cause the graft to dry out and cause desiccation.**

Digital Mapping

 

Real-time 3D analysis that provides accurate mapping and calculations of critical hair follicle characteristics necessary for successful graft dissection.

 

NONE. Information is limited to what can be interpreted by using magnifcation.

Donor Area

 

Intelligent algorithms identify and select only the best hairs for harvesting

  • Consistent results
  • Uniformly harvested donor area
 

NONE. Manually operated systems have no mapping, calculations or automated safeguards to track previous dissection sites. Spacing of harvest sites must be guessed visually by the operator.
