HeARtbeat: an augmented reality application for immersive learning of cardiology

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


HeARtbeat©2020 is an augmented reality (AR) application (App) that realistically portrays a beating heart in its normal state and abnormal state (atrial fibrillation). Pharmacy and Biomedical Science students consistently commented that the causes of atrial fibrillation and its treatments, compared to other heart diseases, are difficult to comprehend. The App was developed as a technology-based strategy to continuously improve the teaching effectiveness and students’ learning experiences. Users are able to interact with the heart model in real-time while navigating through the content of the App that presents information from Basic Sciences (Anatomy, Physiology, Pathophysiology) and Pharmacology to clinical application.
