04-16-2016, 01:24 PM
For any medical device to be successful in today’s marketplace, companies develop products that essentially need to appear to be superior in function to current methods or devices used in their particular market. Many companies will develop the product, secure patent protection for its medical device and related methods of use, and simply go out and try to sell it.

For most devices used in the hair transplant field, continuing R&D is rarely considered necessary and the products are, in our view, more geared towards the success of the physicians purchasing them than the patients these physician’s are serving.

Spencer Kobren and Dr. Gabe Zingaretti, Chief Operations Officer (COO) of Restoration Robotics and lead developer of the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system discuss the unique approach that Restoration Robotics takes when it comes to R&D compared to other product manufacturers in the field.
