The Aide to Extraction (ATOE) is designed to facilitate the removal of grafts during the Cole Isolation Technique (CITTM) method of follicular unit extraction. The instrument is made of stainless steel. The device allows for easy graft removal following minimal depth extraction. The offset groves grasp the grafts without causing damage. The ATOE is designed to accumulate multiple grafts at one time.
The use of the ATOE minimizes follicle injury and speeds up the graft removal process. Generally, 25 grafts at a time are extracted with the ATOE.
