The CID-R features an LED display that maintains a 5 digit count of recipient site preparation and 3 different tips with depth control for pre-cut blades (0.90 mm and 1.00 mm to 1.30 mm in 0.05 mm increments) or needles (18G or 19G), depending upon your preferred method of recipient site preparation. This revolutionary device is lightweight and ergonomic. With other methods, graft site preparation produces a crunching sound that often makes the patient feel uncomfortable and nervous. The CID-R device produces signalling at a comfortable level for patients to mask the sound produced by graft site preparation. With this new automated technology, the physician can now communicate freely with the patient and help reduce any patient anxiety. With the CID-R, the physician can now communicate openly with his staff during the procedure. This frees your staff from counting grafts to cutting grafts, thus making your team more efficient overall. Finally, as most hair transplant procedures are billed on a per graft basis, the incision count accuracy of the CID-R is an effective way to eliminate counting errors and promote improved billing accuracy. In conclusion, the CID-R offers many advantages to both patients and physicians. The tip and collets of the CID-R can be sonicated and autoclaved for future usage.
For the Average Hair Transplant Practice, the CID may create over $100.00 in value per procedure, generating each physician over $25,500 annually! 3

1: Avg. grafts/surgery = 1,200; standard counting error = 1.7% based on CID random counting study, sample size = 258; price/graft = $5.00.
2: labor cost/hr = $20/hr: (1 tech counting, 1 hour saved) (1 tech cutting grafts, 1 hour increased productivity,) (overall surgical time potentially reduced)
3: Assumes 250 surgeries per year
