Using beautiful 3D visualisation to take a look inside the human body, this App explores the difficulties in defining a disease. Can disease exist without illness? Does disease precede symptoms? ...And what is health? Is health merely the absence of disease? We explore the concept of homeostasis, or equilibrium in the body, and the fact that disease can be physiological or psychological. Using lobar pneumonia as an example, we present the acute inflammatory response stimulated by the bacterium 'streptococcus pneumoniae' to demonstrate the interconnectedness of biological processes within cells, tissues and organs. That is, a change in one will effect a change in another.

What is Disease? You don't have to be a medical student or doctor to know that defining disease is difficult - it can be physiological or psychological. Concepts such as homeostasis, or equilibrium in the body are explained using beautiful 3D animation. This App is suitable for all ages and educational backgrounds, in particular 1st year university students studying medical or health science. It includes Q & A which let's the user test their knowledge recall after watching the 3D video. An absolute bargain @ 99 cents!
