Hair Restoration Robotics Device ARTAS System Gets Canadian Medical Device License

Restoration Robotics, a provider of medical devices, announced it has obtained Canadian Medical Device License for its innovative ARTAS System. The license allows the company to market the product in Canada.

Launched in August 2011, the ARTAS System is a physician controlled robotic device that allows hair surgeons to quickly identify and harvest healthy follicular units directly from the patient's scalp during hair transplantation. Through its innovative design and ease-of-use, the ARTAS System will enable physicians to offer this minimally invasive hair procedure to their patients.

The ARTAS System employs precision robotics and image guided technology for consistent, safe, and positive outcomes with the treatment. The system has been developed with collaboration with various distinguished hair restoration surgeons. It has also achieved 510K clearance from the FDA.

The ARTAS System has created a revolution in hair restoration field and has already gained popularity in the United States. Vincent DeLany was the first patient to be treated by James Harris, MD, of the Hair Sciences Center of Colorado (Denver, CO), soon after the official launch of the product in the U.S.

Conventional hair restoration surgeries are tedious and demand great deal of intervention from hair surgeon. The robot-assisted ARTAS System helps physicians rapidly detect and collect healthy follicular units from the patient’s scalp directly. The ARTAS System’s convenient design and accessibility ensure minimally invasive hair transplant procedures, according to company officials.

Since ARTAS System results in a less invasive procedure to extract follicles, it is gaining popularity among patients who want to regain the original appearance. Traditional hair loss surgeries like Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) involve surgical removal of hair follicles, which leaves a long and permanent scar on the scalp of the head. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) on the other hand, involves extraction of individual hair follicles, allowing for a non-invasive and painless hair transplant in men suffering from androgenic alopecia. The ARTAS System is widely used in FUE procedures.

"The ARTAS System is quickly being embraced by top hair restoration surgeons and their patients in the United States and we are now excited to offer this state-of-the-art technology in Canada," said Jim McCollum, chief executive officer, Restoration Robotics.

With ARTAS System, Restoration Robotics eyes the highly potential hair restoration market. According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), at least 35 million men in the United States are affected by male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia. By age 50, approximately 50 percent of men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss.
