Hair Transplant Robot Gets New Capability

Robots are an increasingly important focus as we move into the future because they help automate processes and achieve tasks not possible from human users. In the medical field, robots are being used from everything to saving peoples lives on the operating table, to reminding someone to take their medication on time and monitoring their vitals.

When it comes to surgical procedures, robots are valued for their precision and ability to be programmed to do more than is possible with the human hand. Now, Dr. Robert M. Bernstein, Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Columbia University and founder of Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration is making headlines for adding new features to the system that further improve hair transplants.

The latest features added to the ARTAS Robotic System specifically relate to follicular unit extraction as well as transplantation of hair grafts. Using the system it’s possible to automate a step that was once only possible by hand.

The ARTAS Robotic System was launched back in 2011 by Restoration Robotics, Inc.

Now, with the new automated system and robotic hand, it is possible to maximize the number of donor hairs extracted in each graft and it does so with creating the least possible wound for the patient.

To make this possible, a surgeon need only program the ARTAS robot to be able to harvest follicular units that have more than two hairs by guiding the robot to skip over the 1-hair units.

In a bid to further develop the robotic capabilities, Bernstein Medical is conducting further studies related to robotic harvesting and graft selection for hair transplants.
