The Synergy of BodyWorks Eve and HeartWorks: Revolutionizing Emergency Medicine and Point-of-Care Education

In the ever-evolving landscape of emergency medicine and point-of-care education, the integration of cutting-edge technology has become paramount in providing comprehensive training while minimizing clinical risks and enhancing patient outcomes. Intelligent Ultrasound, a pioneering developer of ultrasound simulation and training solutions, has been at the forefront of this transformation, offering innovative tools like BodyWorks Eve and HeartWorks that are reshaping the way healthcare professionals approach education in critical care scenarios.

A Gateway to Comprehensive Training

BodyWorks Eve, is an comprehensive point-of-care ultrasound (PoCUS) simulator, which serves as a dynamic training platform designed to replicate real-life clinical scenarios with unparalleled accuracy. Equipped with a vast library of pathologies, BodyWorks Eve allows tutors to replicate real life PoCUS scanning, using the instructor tablet to control the ‘patient’ state such as heart-rate, respiratory rate, and dynamically changing the pathology. From abdominal scans to emergency medicine protocols such as the FAST exam, BodyWorks Eve offers a dynamic learning environment that empowers clinicians to develop proficiency and confidence in their diagnostic abilities.


The true strength of BodyWorks Eve lies in its ability to provide a realistic, but safe environment to learn emergency and point-of-care ultrasound. By providing hands-on experience in a risk-free setting, this simulator enables learners to refine their technique, interpret ultrasound findings, and make informed clinical decisions—all essential aspects of emergency medicine and point-of-care ultrasound programs. Whether it’s identifying fluid collections in trauma patients or detecting abnormalities in the abdomen, BodyWorks Eve equips healthcare professionals with the skills necessary to deliver timely and accurate care in high-pressure situations.

Elevating Cardiac Care

Complementing the capabilities of BodyWorks Eve is HeartWorks, an innovative cardiac simulator specifically tailored to offer a deeper understanding of cardiac anatomy and function with unparalleled realism and fidelity. HeartWorks enables practitioners to explore the intricacies of the heart in unprecedented detail, from assessing chamber dimensions to evaluating valvular function. By simulating a wide range of cardiac pathologies, including myocardial infarction and valvular disorders, HeartWorks empowers clinicians to refine their cardiac knowledge and echocardiography skills in a safe, low-pressured environment.


The power of HeartWorks lies in its ability to bridge the gap between theory and practice. The built-in cardiac textbook provides exceptional detail on cardiac anatomy and function, and for every case there is an anatomically accurate and fully interactive 3D heart which can be rotated, sliced in any direction, have any of the 135 intracardiac structures highlighted or explored in 3D echocardiography. By integrating HeartWorks into point-of-care ultrasound programs, healthcare organizations can ensure that their teams are well-equipped to assess cardiac emergencies with confidence and proficiency.

One customer, Professor Stephane Lafitte from Bordeaux University Hospital, attests to the transformative impact of this integrated approach: “When moving to HeartWorks they were able to see the heart contracting and moving, a real move in how they considered the heart. Medical image modalities existed but were not as precise as the HeartWorks model. HeartWorks was a new way to imagine, see, understand, and teach the global heart dynamic structure.”

The Power of Integration

While both BodyWorks Eve and HeartWorks excel in their respective domains, it’s their synergy that truly sets them apart. In emergency medicine, where timely diagnosis is critical, the ability to rapidly assess cardiac function can mean the difference between life and death. By combining the comprehensive scenario training and protocols of BodyWorks Eve, with the specialized cardiac detail of HeartWorks, trainees can gain a holistic understanding of ultrasound imaging that is invaluable in emergency medicine settings. Both systems can be combined into one complete PoCUS and Cardiac simulator. This integration allows practitioners to transition between different areas of learning, from trauma assessments to cardiac evaluations, within one unified platform that maximizes efficiency and effectiveness.

Empowering Healthcare Professionals for the Future

As healthcare continues to evolve, the demand for advanced training solutions that enhance clinical proficiency and improve patient outcomes will only continue to grow. By harnessing the power of simulation technology, Intelligent Ultrasound is empowering healthcare professionals to navigate the complexities ultrasound education with confidence and precision. With BodyWorks Eve and HeartWorks leading the way, the future of critical care looks brighter than ever before.
