Zebra Imaging and Zygote Media Partner to Bring 3-D Visualization to the Medical Community

Partnership provides medical professionals access to 3-D human anatomy

January 20, 2015 — Zebra Imaging Inc. announced a partnership with the Zygote Media Group Inc. Zygote maintains the world's most comprehensive library of accurate 3-D anatomy and biomedical models and has pioneered development of high-end solid 3-D anatomy models for research and bioengineering.

Zygote offers customers virtual reality 3-D models and 3-D services, including Zygote Body, a free interactive 3-D model of the human body that was co-developed with Google. Zygote models are used by medical experts in textbooks, software and animated videos around the world.

Through the partnership, Zebra Imaging's customers will be able to access and create 3-D holographic prints from Zygote's library of human anatomy. Zygote customers will be able to order 3-D Holograms of medical models direct from 3DScience.com and ZygoteBody.com. Additionally the companies will be creating joint product offerings to medical customers, including hospitals, physicians and medical educators, as well as device and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Zebra Imaging's holographic technology is used to show complex data in a 3-D, glasses-free display and has been proven to provide a statistically significant performance improvement over traditional textbook materials in understanding anatomy, especially in regards to spatial relationships. A study, released by the U.S. Army showed cognitive loads were lower using the holograms, lending credence to the notion that it is easier to process complex medical information from 3-D holograms.   

Holographic printing of select 3-D models will be available through both companies' websites.
