Epicardio key innovation is based on software solutions that enable real-time 3D simulations to execute on common desktop/laptop computers and the iPad. For the first time, medical “learning-by-doing” is accessible on widely available consumer devices, via standard internet connections. Epicardio simulators bridge the training gap between theory and medical practice by enabling trainee doctors to gain direct experience of how disease can cause changes in organ function. The solution is scalable to a wide range of specialist and non-specialist training, e.g. cardiology, orthopaedics, neurology, endoscopies, etc. The innovative features of the Epicardio computer based simulation are being patented and further R&D is focused on developing the technology into a complete patient-specific diagnostic solution for cardiology.
