The device, developed by engineers from Restoration Robotics in Silicon Valley, the third largest high-tech centre in the United States, is meant to help not only those with balding issues, but also victims of accidents and burns, as well as scalp transplantation patients. It is the first such robot in Central and Eastern Europe.
