As our industry evolves and the canvas for high-end content expands, Glassworks increasingly offers its core skill base to other mediums. In 2007 we were approached by UCLH to assist in designing and manufacturing a pioneering medical simulation tool, capable of training cardiac surgeons for theatre. After three and a half years of intensive research, development and testing, we released Heartworks, a unique product currently selling globally.




‘Virtual heart’

Introducing Heartworks - a state of the art medical training tool designed and created right here at Glassworks. 

At its core is an anatomically correct, virtual, beating 3D heart that is unrivaled in the teaching of cardiac anatomy and manikin-based simulation in echocardiography. The innovative, 3D, interactive ‘virtual heart’ consists of a dedicated desktop or laptop computer, an upper body mannequin and two ultrasound probes. Students using Heartworks gain both a theoretical and practical knowledge of echocardiography and lung ultrasound. 

Heartworks globally provides the most realistic simulated experiences for doctors to train safely and extensively prior to treating real patients.
