In 2020, a record number of ARTAS® iX hair restoration procedures were performed. With an average RealSelf rating of 96% for customer satisfaction, ARTAS® iX puts your clinic ahead of the competition by delivering the results patients are looking for.

The ARTAS® iX Robotic Hair Restoration System

In essence, the ARTAS® iX Robotic Hair Restoration System delivers a personalized hairline design for every patient with state-of-the-art precision, efficiency, and repeatability. Cutting-edge features have made this device a favorite among top plastic surgeons, dermatologists and physcians around the world.

Advanced Technology

The ARTAS® iX robotic hair restoration platform includes an advanced multi-camera stereoscopic vision system with 44-micron resolution. This system, along with the device’s seven-axis robot arm, enables physicians to deliver robotic procedures with the greatest accuracy. The ARTAS® robotic hair transplant machine is able to intelligently analyze and select appropriate grafts from the donor area without over harvesting, while completely eliminating the risk of linear scarring. The ARTAS® iX machine can also accurately identify and create optimal recipient sites while simultaneously implanting each harvested graft. By protecting the patient’s existing terminal hair, the ARTAS® robotic hair transplant system works to maintain a more natural appearance in both the donor site and the recipient area.

Artificial Intelligence Integration

Advanced AI consistently analyzes, monitors and tracks each hair follicle's characteristics–position, angle, size, and orientation–and adjusts for patient movement. AI-optimized harvesting, intelligent graft analysis and randomized selection from donor area ensure high-quality grafts and natural-looking results. Machine learning recognizes and digitally maps past, current and future grafts, and learns new patterns to deliver continuous improvement.

High-Definition Multi-Camera Stereoscopic Vision System

With 44-micron resolution, the ARTAS® iX system accurately visualizes and analyzes each follicular unit, while repeatedly recognizing and identifying key features at the rate of 60 times per second. This enables the image-guided robotic alignment technology to accurately and precisely harvest each follicular unit at the optimal angle.

State-of-the-Art Medical Grade Hardware

The 7-axis KUKA robotic arm delivers high dexterity and efficient movement with 0.1mm repeatability. ARTAS® iX is also equipped with a multi-faceted proprietary Ultra Punch tip and controlled, variable coring speed algorithm that efficiently dissects with less potential trauma to the follicular structure and yields robust grafts. With physicians in mind, the compact and streamlined ergonomic design minimizes the device footprint and facilitates clinical efficiency.

Touchscreen Interface and 3D Pre-Operative Planning

The intuitive, graphics-based user interface with IoT capabilities enhances physician collaboration with technology and gives you the ability to custom-design a hair restoration procedure for each patient with 3D Pre-Operative Planning.
