Big Heart Data

Salomé Bazin

What would happen if science could predict your heart’s health from birth? Would you make different life choices to prevent heart disease?

Advances in medical technology could allow us to create bespoke treatments tailored to individual organs.

Multi-disciplinary designer Salomé Bazin and Pablo Lamata from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at King's College London, have devised a system for creating personalised digital and 3D-printed model of hearts that can help doctors plan surgery.

Commissioned by Science Gallery London, Big Heart Data highlights the differences of our internal anatomy through digital simulations and 3D-printed models of real hearts.

Supported by the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences at King’s College London. With Evelina Children’s Heart Organization. Project funded by the Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Medical Engineering at King's College London, European Commission, the British Heart Foundation and NIHR Cardiovascular MedTech Co-operative.
