The ARTAS Hair Studio application is an interactive patient consultation tool which heightens a patient’s engagement level, enhances their consultation experience, and creates a highly personalized aesthetic recipient site design. It also improves patient education regarding hair loss and available options. 5 photographs are taken which result in a 3D customized model. From the 3D model, a personalized hair transplant solution is formulated. The software is on a touchscreen tablet, easy to use, and generates a realistic 3D patient model. The direction, orientation, density, angle, and design appropriateness are determined and visualized by the patient. The hairline design as well as the frontal 1/3 are the areas that are able to be designed by the ARTAS hair studio. The simulated recipient pattern design is saved and transferred easily to the robotic system with the touch of a button. The robotic imaging system calculates and matches the angle and direction of the pre-existing hair, and avoids making incisions that damage the pre-existing hair. The patient receives efficient and precise recipient site creating based on the personalized design. Once the recipient sites are created, your Ziering surgeon refines the designs by hand for the optimal experience.
The benefits of the ARTAS Hair Studio are that the patient’s consultation is enhanced and the patient has realistic expectations of the outcome. The virtual hair design is instant, leading to a more confident patient in regards to the potential outcome. The typical site making capability ranges around 2000 sites in 1 hour.
Ziering Medical was the first to use the ARTAS Hair Studio in April 2014 prior to the official launch in May 2015. We now have the patients who have the results set forth with the ARTAS Hair Studio, who are pleased with their customized design.
