ARTAS Robotic System Receives Edison Award

The Wall Street Journal has named the ARTAS Robotic System of hair restoration for the Edison Award according to the April, ’13 edition of the journal.

The Edison award program is conducted by Edison Universe which was initiated to recognize and award best innovations and discoveries. New technological developments and optimized techniques of accomplishing a task are selected and awarded to commend the company’s efforts.

Restoration Robotics Inc. a developer of medical devices which has made the ARTAS robotic system for hair transplant also confirmed that it has received the Gold Medal at the 26th Edison Awards Ceremony in the field of Medical science.

Jim McCollum, the CEO and President of Restoration Robotics expressed his happiness on receiving the award. He noted that the ARTAS System was a significant and cutting -edge innovation which will optimize hair restoration technology.

ARTAS robotic system can be used to restore hair for patients as an outpatient procedure. The result is fast and within a week both the donor and receptor areas on the scalp will look similar and even throughout. The system is based on advanced digital tech precision robots that are programmed and guided by an experienced surgeon to transplant hair from the back and sides of the head which is genetically immune to balding to the bald area on the top of the scalp.

The hair restoration procedure is entirely safe and has been approved by the FDA as a safe medical device which uses digital imagery to map hair groupings or follicular units. To locate which hair follicles can be removed without making the donor area (the area from where hair is to be removed) barren, it is trimmed for being digitized by the ARTAS Robotic System.

The patient does not feel a thing as a local anesthetic is applied by the doctor to render the procedure pain free. A skin tensioner is also used on the scalp which helps the surgeon with accurate location of hair follicles so that hair can be removed or harvested in its natural groups.

The precision robotics helps remove follicular units randomly within the clump of hair so as to maintain the original look in the donor area. In addition image guidance, digital visualization, dynamic adjustment to patient movement and selective harvest pattern are leveraged while removing hair. The entire process is precisely followed until the required amount of hair is removed.

The viable grafts are transplanted into the bald areas of the scalp to take the place of the lost hair. As the process is pain free, scar free and does not require rest or recuperation, patients can return back to normal activities within two days.

Within a week head is covered evenly by short hair growth and both donor and recipient areas look the same. At the most in six to nine months they will sport natural-looking hair which can be styled also.
