Anatomy learning app lures €0.3m investment

Anatomy Next - an augmented reality learning app for medical students, dubbed 'Google Maps for the human body' - has attracted a €0.3m investment. 

The investment comes from two sources. One is the Impramatur Capital risk capital fund, while the other remains undisclosed.

The startup aims to render the human body in augmented reality 3D. It could prove to be very useful for medical students, many of whom are still learning like this:

Uldis Zariņš, one of the founders, is an author of two books about anatomy for sculptors. The app is based on these books.

Together with business partner and co-founder Sandris Kondrāts they've campaigned successfully on the KickStarter crowdfunding website. 

So far the head and neck muscles and bones have been pushed into the app, while work is ongoing on the 12 cranial nerves.

Anatomy Next's team includes business people along with medical experts, programmers and 3D artists.

The startup recently graduated from the Startup Wise Guys accelerator program.

"The investments and knowledge gained in the accelerator program is like a rocket platform to fulfill our vision - to build a company that could save billions of lives. The team has been shaping and growing for several years.

I am sure that we'll be able to reach our goals and carry Latvia's name out in the world," said Kondrāts.
