The partnership will integrate ANIMA RES’ award-winning Insight series into the GigXR immersive learning platform to allow learners to view high-quality 3D holograms of the heart, lungs and kidneys respectively in mixed reality. They will also be able to visualize different pathological states and their impact on the organ being studied. Insight Heart, Insight Lung, and Insight Kidney, powered by GigXR, will begin rolling out from summer 2022.
Extend hyper-realistic 3D medical training globally
ANIMA RES holograms are differentiated by their hyper-realistic appearance and precise structural movement. For example, for the cardiac application, learners can observe myocardial infarction (heart attack), high blood pressure, and atrial fibrillation and see an accurate version of how the heart muscle is affected, which would not be possible with 2D training methods or even in a cadaver lab.
“Mixed reality anatomy holograms combine the ‘best of both worlds’ of analog and digital healthcare training,” said Rodrigo Olmos, CIO and co-founder of ANIMA RES. “After all, learners will process inhabit humans. Using an accurate, high-fidelity simulation of a living body during training, rather than a cadaver or a simulation puppet, helps tremendously in understanding the complexity and fascination of the human body and making their experience meaningful. much more valuable learning. We know from studies how important detail is: the higher the level of detail in realistic organs, the greater the learning experience. »
“By partnering with GigXR to bring our hyper-realistic holograms to their platform, we are able to expand into key verticals, such as higher education, and expand our geographic reach to match the global footprint of GigXR in this industry,” added Pablo Olmos, CEO and Co-founder of ANIMA RES.
Fusing world-class medical education and expertise for high-quality learning
ANIMA RES Insight series apps have a long and successful history in creating 3D interactive content. It was featured in an Apple Keynote in 2017 and won various awards like the German Medical Award. After extensive and constant development, the Insight series will now be offered on the immersive learning platform GigXR which also hosts hyper-realistic healthcare training apps created in partnership with world-class medical education experts at institutions such as the University of Cambridge, Michigan Medicine and Northwestern Permanent PC
“ANIMA RES possesses stunning technical virtuosity that has already proven essential in bringing mixed reality education and training to the forefront of healthcare learning,” said David King Lassman, Founder of GigXR. “We are thrilled to partner with ANIMA RES to enable seamless, user-friendly implementation of our learning solutions and expand our robust library of content that continues to match the quality and criteria of partners building the future of healthcare training with us.”
A single set of login credentials will allow users to access all GigXR Platform applications regardless of developer, simplifying access and centralizing learning resources. It also creates a streamlined procurement process for institutions looking to add mixed reality to their toolkit. GigXR’s applications target healthcare learners across all disciplines and at all levels, from preclinical nursing students to healthcare professionals seeking continuing education.
Streamlined accessibility and reach for partners and healthcare professionals
The partnership is a key step in GigXR’s development of a 360-degree education and training library that offers comprehensive resources for all disciplines and stages of healthcare education. GigXR’s Immersive Learning Platform, a simple and powerful SaaS platform, makes it easy for teachers and learners to use extended reality in their daily curriculum.
“The value created by GigXR for all of our platform stakeholders is something we are extremely proud of,” said Jared Mermey, CEO of GigXR. “Our platform and the applications delivered on it – whether developed by GigXR or one of our partners like the Insight Series – minimize friction for adoption of this medium which we believe greatly improves the quality of learning for any healthcare and higher education institution while also reducing their costs and operational burdens.Our partnership with ANIMA RES – who can now add their products to our platform via SDK – is an incredible example how the extended reality community can come together to improve real-world training.
GigXR and ANIMA RES plan to launch Insight Heart by ANIMA RES, powered by GigXR in the summer of 2022. Insight Lung and Insight Kidney apps will follow. For more information about GigXR, visit gigxr.com. For more information about ANIMA RES, visit animares.com.
