Robert M. Bernstein, MD and Michael B. Wolfeld, MD of Bernstein Medical - Center for Hair Restoration have introduced ARTAS 9x, a major upgrade of the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System. Bernstein Medical became the first practice to perform surgery using the ARTAS Robotic System 9x.
A corresponding article describing the latest modifications to the ARTAS robot was published in the industry journal Hair Transplant Forum International. The ARTAS 9x system enables faster and more precise robotic hair transplant procedures.
Some of the benefits of the updated ARTAS system include greater range-of-motion of the robotic arm, newly designed needles for more accurate harvesting, improved optical system, simplified site making, smaller donor wounds, automatic scar detection, and a greater overall speed.
"The latest improvements extend the already substantial capabilities of the ARTAS Robot with improved accuracy, quicker donor healing, and a faster overall procedure." ~ Dr. Michael B. Wolfeld
The article, published in the May/June issue of Hair Transplant Forum International, describes technical modifications to the robot and their benefits. The article is titled, "What's New in Robotic Hair Transplantation."
The ARTAS Robot is a physician-assisted suite of hardware and software components, developed by Restoration Robotics, Inc., which automates key aspects of a surgical hair restoration procedure. Using its three-dimensional optical system, the ARTAS System guides its robotic arm and surgical tools with microscopic precision. By automating follicular unit graft harvesting and recipient site creation, the robot minimizes human error in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplants and allows for the maximum preservation of hair follicles in the transplant.
