I hope all goes well and you'll be happy with the results.
Just curious, how does this work? Does the robot make the punches and put the grafts in or what?
You haven't said if it's cheaper than traditional (by hand) grafts.
they put the IV tube in me...then before we started they injected a needle of something in it...next thing i know i was waking up and head was all punched up. they did this this twice as i woke up the first time. my pants were still on and my organs werent harvested so i can complain
when i awoke the second time i was facing the screen on the computer and could actually see the whole process. I guess they puts something down on your head to mark off a square so the robot knows not to go outside of the boundaries. then they highlight the area grey, they can change the area smaller or bigger. it was so magnified that even me a few feet away could identify 1's, 2's, 3's, 4's - they click on a hair follicle which places a green first on it and the hand punches down the extracts the hair follicle. after it was done more green dots come up and i think the machine was saying these are some good other possible candidates, the tech either clicked a green or made there own green dot.
i am not sure what happens after it is grabbed, it is stored some place by the computer.
dr. harris and his team put in the graphs. this part i dont think technology is there yet. due to the positioning of the graph and this process seems alot more intense. whatever the robot did this process seemed like it took 3x as long.
