Powered FUE Tools
The AdvancedFue Motorized Extraction Device (The Feller Instrument):
Designed by Dr. Alan Feller, the Feller FUE instrument combines the essential FUE procedures (isolation, incision, extraction) into a single instrument. The use of a single instrument is designed to help hair restoration physicians work faster and more efficiently.
The proprietary design of this device overcomes suction and friction exerted on delicate FUE grafts by combining two critical technological advances: a proprietary "Modified Elastic Oscillating Mechanism” that operates with greater precision of movement and the patented AdvancedFue punch profile that reduces friction and suction between the outer edge of graft tissue and the inner wall of the punch. This results in less damage to follicle tissue due to twisting, friction or heat, and a significantly higher implant success rate.

The Proprietary Motorized FUE Tool:
Developed by Coalition member Dr. Jean Devroye in an attempt to improve the quality of results patients can achieve with FUE, this device was designed to improve the speed of the follicular unit extraction procedure while maintaining the same effectiveness as when performed manually by a skilled surgeon.
This new powered FUE device works by spinning alternatively with a low angular motion. This allows for fast and effective penetration of the scalp and extraction of the follicle while keeping the risks of damage to the follicles virtually nonexistent. Its speed is controlled by a foot treadle allowing for better hand control of the device.
