SmartGraft is an Automated Follicular Unit Extraction (AFUE) system. It is a harvesting system which utilizes a completely closed unit to ensure the optimum environment to better protect the grafts. The system is controlled through a user-friendly touch screen interface with a built-in chiller unit. The harvested grafts are maintained though a unique misting or bathing facility to ensure optimum preservation of the donor grafts. The system automatically counts the grafts taken thus reducing the amount of time to perform the procedure. With the SmartGraft AFUE technique, the vacuum forms a seal and then extracts the rest of the graft, potentially reducing the risk of transection.
