SAN JOSE, Calif., July 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Restoration Robotics, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAIR), the global leader in robotic hair restoration, today announced the launch of its new ARTAS® iX Robotic Hair Restoration System. The ARTAS iX Robotic Hair Restoration System is the only robotic intelligent solution to offer precise, minimally invasive, repeatable harvesting and implantation functionality in one platform.

The ARTAS iX System is equipped with a 3-camera stereoscopic vision system with 44-micron resolution and a 7-axis robot. The system delivers unmatched procedural analysis, precision, repeatability, and clinical workflow efficiency for hair restoration. ARTAS iX features a compact, motorized, battery-powered, portable and adjustable procedure chair for increased patient comfort and clinical versatility that can be used ergonomically in multiple aesthetic procedures.

Ryan Rhodes, CEO of Restoration Robotics, said, “We believe the introduction of the ARTAS iX system is a major transformative milestone for Restoration Robotics and the hair restoration industry. We believe that the additional features, especially the implantation functionality, significantly enhances our offering to physicians and helps position us to further penetrate the expanding male hair restoration market.”

Robert M. Bernstein, MD, Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University and founder of Bernstein Medical Center for Hair Restoration, a state-of-the-art hair transplant facility in New York, NY commented, “The new ARTAS iX system marks a pivotal development in hair restoration technology. It will enable physicians to deliver outstanding results for their patients while reducing the more labor-intensive aspects of hair restoration procedures. Following a recent demonstration of the system, I believe that it will reduce clinical fatigue and case time through robotic assistance and improved clinical workflow.” 

The ARTAS iX system will be unveiled at The Aesthetic Show™ 2018, where Restoration Robotics is a Premier Sponsor, being held July 5-8 at The Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. For more information on the ARTAS iX Robotic Hair Restoration System visit www.artashair.com/ix/physicians.
