In 2010 3Dme collaborated with respiratory physiology academics from Griffith University, Queensland, Australia to create a short, yet engaging and scientifically accurate visual story of a concept that most medical and health science students struggle to understand; ventilation perfusion matching. This is a wonderful example of a project where our team successfully worked with academic content validators to tell the story in a creative, engaging and accurate way. Anecdotal evidence plus objective and subjective classroom data collection revealed a positive trend in student comprehension and interest in this topic. The video was a 2010 Global Awards Finalist for ‘science video’. The initial 7 minute 3D HD video was then expanded on with questions and answers and the iPhone and iPad version was released in October 2011. The iMedicalApps review in 2012 stated “The video is indeed detailed and very impressive”. In 2013 the iPhone and iPad App won a Gold Communicator Award for App Excellence and Distinction. The app is available for download from iTunes and can be viewed individually or presented in a lecture room setting to a larger audience.
After reviewing some of 3Dme’s community health education productions and capabilities, the Drug Education Board of the Australian Lions Drug Awareness Foundation were interested in collaborating to produce a DVD to sell to Australian and New Zealand schools and libraries and return revenue to the Clubs to fund ongoing drug awareness initiatives. The topic decided on was Alcohol and Your Brain. Drinkwise Australia and 3Dme funded this production. Funds raised for ALDAF in the first 5 months after DVD release exceeded $20,000 and the DVD continues to be one of their most sought after items. In 2010 3Dme was awarded the Gold Coast Mayors’ Corporate Social responsibility Award, primarily for raising funds for drug awareness initiatives. The 7 minute video was a 2011 Global Awards Finalist. This was expanded on with questions and answers and the iPhone and iPad version was released in 2011. Lions Clubs presented company founders Luke and Sonya Brannelly with a Dr Harry Jenkins Fellowship Award which is the highest that the Lions Clubs can bestow on an individual and is given for drug awareness service to the Foundation. The App version of Alcohol and Your Brain won a 2012 Queensland State iAward for Innovation. The App also won a 2013 Gold Communicator Award for Excellence.
In 2010 3Dme collaborated with medical science academics from Griffith University, Queensland, Australia to create a short, yet engaging and scientifically accurate visual story of a concept that most medical and health science students struggle to understand; oxidative phosphorylation. This is a wonderful example of a project where our team successfully worked with academic content validators to tell the story in a creative, engaging and accurate way. Anecdotal evidence plus objective and subjective classroom data collection revealed a positive trend in student comprehension of, and interest in this concept. The video was a 2012 Global Awards Finalist. The initial 7 minute 3D HD video was then expanded on with questions and answers and the iPhone and iPad version was released in 2012.
Gold Coast Spine is home to globally recognised Spinal Surgeons. After meeting with 3Dme in 2011 to gain an understanding of our ability to comprehend complex information and present it in a scientifically accurate yet engaging way, we were initially commissioned to produce a surgically accurate animation of a Total Disc Replacement (TDR) for patient education. The surgeon requested animations with text but no voiceover, so he could customise his conversation to specific patients as he spoke over the video. After establishing credibility by successfully producing a visualisation of this procedure, 3Dme were subsequently commissioned to produce animations for additional spinal surgery procedures including Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) and Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF).
In 2010 the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Australia engaged 3Dme to produce a patient education video for people newly diagnosed with MS. Our production team collaborated with MS Australia Clinical Nurse Educators to validate the anatomy and physiology of the 3D content. 3Dme's animation of the pathophysiology of multiple sclerosis featured in the 2012 release of David Suzuki's "Nature of Things" CBC documentary "MS Wars - Hope, Science and the Internet". The initial 7 minute 3D HD video was then expanded on with questions and answers and the iPhone and iPad version was released in 2012. Our ‘MS 3Dme’ App is included in Healthline’s 15 Best Multiple Sclerosis iPhone and Android Apps.
In 2010, well known Cardiac and Transplant Surgeon and Registrar Educator Dr Peter Tesar used a head camera to record an aortic valve replacement procedure as he operated on a patient. Dr Tesar trains and educates surgeons and requested that 3Dme produce a surgically accurate representation of this procedure, including accurate anatomy and suturing techniques, which he could talk over whilst teaching trainee surgeons. Dr Tesar has presented this video at a number of international Cardiac and Transplant Surgery Educational Conventions. This example demonstrates our ability to comprehend complex medical information and reproduce it in a visually appealing, accurate manner.
After the partnering and fundraising success of their first project with 3Dme; Alcohol and Your Brain, the ALDAF Drug Education Board requested we produce a 2nd DVD titled Drugs and Depression. This DVD has also been successful in raising funds for the Foundations’ ongoing drug awareness initiatives. The relationship between 3Dme and the Lions Clubs is one of mutual benefit which continues to grow and strengthen.
3Dme were engaged by the University of Queensland to create a presentation to capture the attention of people as they entered the university’s Pathology Learning Centre. Our creative team collaborated with academics for content validation and the result is a 7 minute 3D HD video which is broadcast on the big screen at the entrance to UQ’s Pathology Learning Centre.
Due to the global interest in the topic Alcohol and Your Brain, 3Dme’s creative storytelling team partnered with university medical students to expand on the product offering. The result is an 80 page iBook complete with educational content suitable for the general population through captivating 3D animations, creative storytelling, interactive models, videos and quizzes. We have been notified that 3Dme’s Alcohol and Your Brain iBook is a National Finalist in the 20th Annual AIMIA Awards. Winners will be announced April 2014.
