In 2018, working with tech start-up Digital Pop-Ups we helped launch Heart Valve AR, an augmented reality tool that allows patients to explore the workings of a catheterisation laboratory on their phone or tablet. The app is now used in hospitals to support and reassure patients ahead of their appointment. Print off a leaflet and scan the code on your phone by using a Zappar app. You can use the augmented reality to show your patients the inside of a TAVI Cath lab.
The book was written by Michael Woan, a 12-year- old boy whose family has been touched by heart valve disease, and illustrated by artist and designer Sally Brown.
The story is based on a true relationship between a young boy, his sister and his grandad.The book takes readers through the stages of grandad’s heart valve disease, from the perspective of a child. The book provides a useful tool for families dealing with heart valve disease, help them talk to their children and grandchildren about the condition.
In 2018, we launched our first annual Heart Valve Voice magazine, which detailed all the incredible work done by the Heart Valve Voice team throughout the year. The magazine also highlighted a number of patient stories, explaining how they have been affected by heart valve disease and how their lives have changed after receiving treatment. The magazine was distributed to 30 heart valve clinics across the UK, allowing patients to learn more about the charity’s activities and the sources of support available to them.
