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.

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.

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.

The camera doesn’t work

whenever it ask you to scan the floor the screen is black. and i try to scan but the camera never ends up working. the camera won’t even pop up the screen just stays black no matter what i do. i want my money back i didn’t even get to use the app since the app doesn’t even work as soon as you try and use it. i have tried to allow acces to the camera but as soon as i open the app the screen is just black and it never asked for camera access or even notifications, it never asked me anything. and i have also tried to go on my settings and allow access but i never gave me an option.

Developer Response ,

Hi Briiannaa_1216,

We are so sorry. There seems to be a problem on the AppStore, because our App is currently available for all iPhone/iPad and that is wrong.
Only ARKit compatible devices should be able to download the App:
iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X and newer
iPad 5th generation, iPad Pro 10.5-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch 2nd generation, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch.

We have already talked to Apple and they are trying to fix it with high priority.
At the moment it´s not in our hands. We can just wait till they have fixed it.

Please refund the App here and you´ll get your money back:
