This is the first augmented reality App to be rolled out in a series of Apps created and designed for medical education purposes.

Our goal is to make medical education fascinating, explorable, and fun for students, physicians as well as accessible to patients - anywhere and anytime, in or out of the classroom, lecture hall or living room. We have committed ourselves to take medical education one step further and have developed visually stunning and highly interactive content based on real life medical and scientific specifications.

Have you ever wondered what your heart looks like during a workout? No problem, you can either use our live heart rate function with Apple Watch (Companion App) or the integrated Health app support to let your last workout data drive the heartbeat in realtime!

Using ARKit, INSIGHT HEART let's users easily scan their physical surroundings and place the three-dimensional heart without the need of predefined markers. Our virtual assistant ANI will guide you through various states of the heart.

Explore the human heart like never before with up to 8 users at the same time, connected via WIFI.

Rotate and scale the high-resolution heart floating in front of you and feast your eyes on highly detailed 4k textures.

Trigger impressive visualizations of various conditions, such as normal heart rate, myocardial infarction, arterial hypertension and atrial fibrillation. Some of these conditions could never be experienced live!

Explore this spatial application. As you walk towards the heart, the heartbeat becomes louder, due to the integrated spacial sound and to make this experience even more engaging you can also feel the heartbeat on the palm of your hand using haptic feedback on iPhone.

Moving even closer opens the heart automatically, letting you dive into the amazingly detailed model of the heart and explore the new blood flow simulation.

Tap on the spatial annotations to get more dedicated information for each region of the heart from every angle.

And there is a lot more to come - so stay tuned!
This and the other following apps in the INSIGHT-series will take medical education to a whole new level - no one has ever seen the human heart in this way before.

Maybe Trauma situation just so much ideas that can with the app great work would love to see this app grow I’ll be willing to pay more as it develops who knows maybe one day this app can save lives through awareness of what’s going on in the body !

EVERY time I use the app?

The info in the app is great. Comprehensive with nice visual graphics. The problem I have is that I want to use the app wherever I am and whatever I’m doing. The app makes you take a picture of the invisible man every time you open it, and it’s all relative to where you take the pic. For example, you can’t just open the app to get access to all the great info, you must first take a pic, and then you can’t use the app unless you stay completely still and hold your phone at whatever weird angle you need to to see the virtual man. Content I give 5 stars, user interface 1 star.

Just download it!!

I’m a Premed student with an interest in the heart which is probably why this app caught my eye. This interactive app is unlike any other that I’ve downloaded in that it allows me to learn more about different heart conditions and what each actually look like—since I haven’t been given the opportunity to see them in person yet. It’s just as helpful as my beloved Netter’s atlas! 😂 Completely worth it!
