As proven and innovate medical animators, Elara has a proud tradition of taking complex anatomical processes and turning them into informative, educational, and realistic 3D animations.
One of our many areas of anatomical expertise is the human heart. Although many people have a general knowledge of how the heart works and functions, few people outside of physicians, researchers, and clinicians have a grasp of how complex the operations of the heart actually are.
Elara is frequently tasked with explaining how medical devices, drugs, and other treatment modalities work in conjunction with the heart. These complex physiological and interventional cardiovascular mechanisms can be simplified, illustrated, and better explained through the use of refined, robust, and visually captivating animations. Both in explaining complex science and in driving the sales process, 3D animation is an essential tool for any company.
We’ve provided just a few of our samples below for you to see the variety of styles and techniques we employ when creating our work. Because while a heart is always a heart, each one is truly unique.
A compilation of extraordinary and scientifically accurate heart models we have developed over the years.
is an irregular and often rapid heart rate that can increase your risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. During atrial fibrillation, the heart’s two upper chambers (the atria) beat chaotically and irregularly — out of coordination with the two lower chambers (the ventricles) of the heart. Atrial fibrillation symptoms often include heart palpitations, shortness of breath and weakness.
is a heart rhythm disorder (arrhythmia) caused by abnormal electrical signals in the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles). Abnormal electrical signals in the ventricles cause the heart to beat faster than normal, usually 100 or more beats a minute, out of sync with the upper chambers. In some cases, ventricular tachycardia can cause your heart to stop.
Device for Valve Replacement
This detailed interactive video was produced to educate physicians and surgeons on the process and implementation device by the name of Acurate TA. This minimally-invasive transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) device functions as a replacement valve to a damaged left ventricle in the heart. Cracking ones chest is no longer necessary when having this type of procedure.
are called cardiac muscle cells. These cells contain specialized organelles such as myofibrils, mitochondria, the sarcoplasmic reticulum for storage and release of calcium and the sarcolemma which is a membrane that encloses each muscle cell. Cardiomyocytes are very flexible as they shorten and lengthen to perform the mechanical function of a beating heart. They are connected by cellular bridges which allow the heart muscle to act as a single coordinated unit.
Photos or 3D Models?
Do these AED (automated external defibrillator) shots look like photographs? Products can look like photographs but are in fact Elara-built, custom 3D models! Check it out here with the Powerheart G5 Animation.
Imagine if you could complete the test on patients without using any wires? That’s what Cardiac Science asked Elara to show in this product feature of the Quinton 9550 Stress Testing System.
A cardiac stress test is a cardiological test that measures a heart’s ability to respond to external stress in a controlled clinical environment. The stress response is induced by exercise or by drug stimulation. Cardiac stress tests compare the coronary circulation while the patient is at rest with the same patient’s circulation during maximum physical exertion, showing any abnormal blood flow to the myocardium. The results can be interpreted as a reflection on the general physical condition of the test patient.
