Synopsis

An immersive journey to the interior of the heart that aims to raise awareness
to the society for the problems of early heart aging.
Based on a realistic 3D approach, with content scientifically validated by the
University of Coimbra, this video discusses the problems related to early
cardiovascular aging.
Using a comparative analysis, we can see in parallel the functioning of 2
hearts, in different states of health: a healthy and aged one at an early age.
One of the main goals of this video is to alert to the dangers of a high calorie
diet and lack of exercise. The consequences, such as the decrease in
electrical signal propagation through the heart, for example, are listed visually
to the user that is inside the heart.
By conciliating scientific rigor and the relevance of its content, a simple
message is transmitted, both playful and pedagogical.
