Although infused from Vinformax, London, it is being made in Bengaluru, thereby strengthening our commitment to the ‘Digital India’ and ‘Make In India’ campaigns by the Government of India. S3D Medimagic is running successfully in India, Georgia, Armenia and now we are entering UAE, Malaysia, USA and Europe. We are also rolling out Medimagic Pro with added clinical features, Evaluation process, Interactive sessions though cutting edge technologies like Virtual reality, Augmented reality and Gaming into medical education.”
The S3D Medimagic uses HD stereoscopic images, visuals and models to bring high definition in-depth perception of Human Anatomy, Physiology, Bio-chemistry, Pathology, Pharmacology, Forensic Medicine & Toxicology and Microbiology. With this, students will be able to view extremely intricate structures and functional processes within an arm’s distance from anywhere in the classroom.

All the imagination that we as medical students and professionals had to do to understand the medical subject, is no longer necessary as this product has done it for them. Watching medical lessons in 3D in the class rooms and in 2D in the app version, leads to more retention power thereby saving time for the students and also prevents routine redundancy where hours are spent trying to memorize the subject matter.”
“The product comes in two versions - The tutor version in 3D which helps the professors to show proper visualization of the anatomical structures in 3D with depth perception and to teach, annotate and share screenshots to the students; and the app version in 2D which helps the students in pre-learning and revisions.” Dr. Mahesh added.
Senate Member, RGUHS, Dr. Iftikhar Ali said, “Teachers and students alike have reported betterment in academic results and said it helped improve their learning, recall and test performance.
