Restoration Robotics

Restoration Robotics, Inc., a privately held medical device company, is dedicated to revolutionizing the field of hair transplantation by developing and commercializing a state-of-the-art image-guided system (ARTAS™ System) that enables follicular unit extraction.
The patient chair needs to accommodate a mind boggling set of positions and body types, from the 5th to the 95th % male and female.

There are two primary position that the chair has to transform into, the face down harvest position and the face up implant position. In addition there was a requirement for no external power or batteries to move and operate the multitude of adjustments. Everything is purely mechanical utilizing hydraulic and pneumatic hand or foot pumps.

Of particular interest and challenge is the ability to move the chair in an arc while keeping the surface of the head in the same polar position and height.
