How the ARTAS Robotic FUE Hair Transplant device is reducing human error in hair transplants

Hair loss can be a frustrating and stressful experience for both men and women. Hair transplant procedures have long been a popular option for those looking to restore their hair and boost their confidence. Among the various hair transplant techniques available, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) has gained significant popularity due to its minimally invasive nature and ability to provide natural-looking results.

However, even with the success of FUE hair transplants, the procedure still had some limitations, including the time, effort, and reproducibility required to extract hair follicles manually. Although, with advancements in technology, the ARTAS Robotic FUE Hair Transplant machine has emerged as a game-changer in the field of hair transplant procedures.

We Grow Hair Indy, located in Indianapolis, Indiana, is among the few clinics in the United States that offer this cutting-edge technology. The ARTAS system is the first FDA-cleared robotic hair transplant device designed to automate the FUE process. The system combines precision robotics, advanced digital imaging, and artificial intelligence algorithms to identify and select the optimal hair follicles for extraction.

One of the significant benefits of the ARTAS Robotic FUE Hair Transplant machine is that it reduces the risk of human error during the hair transplant procedure. With manual FUE extraction, there is a chance for human error to occur, such as over-harvesting or under-harvesting of hair follicles, causing damage to the donor area or uneven results.

The ARTAS system’s advanced digital imaging and artificial intelligence algorithms ensure that the hair follicles are extracted precisely and uniformly, which also plays a vital role in producing the best quality grafts and, as a result, reducing damage/transaction of the grafts being harvested. Moreover, the ARTAS system is going to have the ability to make little micro adjustments (up to 50x per second) to adjust for changes in the tissue layers.. The system also eliminates the need for repetitive manual movements during the hair extraction process, reducing the surgeon’s fatigue and potential for mistakes when harvesting the donor hair. The ARTAS system, when performed by an experienced and well trained team,  can extract up to 1,000 grafts per hour, making the procedure faster and more efficient than manual extraction methods.

Additionally, the ARTAS system’s automated hair extraction reduces the variability of hair graft quality and quantity. The system’s accuracy and precision ensure that the extracted hair grafts are of the highest quality and quantity, providing better results and a higher success rate for the procedure. The ARTAS system will identify the density of each area of the donor zone (number of follicular units per square centimeter) and is displayed to allow for real-time and accurate adjustments that may need to be made by the medical staff, thus providing the patient with the best possible outcome, not only in the recipient area but also in the donor area.

By reducing the risk of human error, The ARTAS system has revolutionized the FUE hair transplant procedure, making it more precise, efficient, and less invasive. Patients who undergo the ARTAS procedure have said they experience less discomfort and had a faster recovery. The system’s accuracy and consistency also ensure that the donor area is preserved, allowing for future hair transplant procedures if needed.

We Grow Hair Indy‘s use of this technology is a testament to their commitment to providing patients with the latest and most effective hair restoration techniques available.
