Parkview Medical Center blasts off to zSpace


Parkview Medical Center is bringing state-of-the-art education to Pueblo with the introduction of 10 new zSpace® computers.

The new computers will allow the public to explore different parts and systems of the body within an immersive 3D environment. It’s an opportunity for students to learn about health and the human anatomy in a new and exciting way.

Students don 3D glasses and pick up a stylus to manipulate the images on the screen.

It’s a new way for Parkview to reach out to the community and educate the public about their health.

The computers will be featured in many of Parkview’s community outreach efforts, including education events at local businesses and the Pueblo Mall, integration with the School to Employment Program (STEP) at Pueblo School District 70 and Pueblo City Schools’ Health Academy, the Chest Pain Symposium and February’s heart month events. 

Parkview’s STEP students gave the computers a test run on Thursday to resounding success.

“zSpace is the type of technology that will innovate learning,” said Cheyenne Lockwood, a STEP student from Pueblo West High School. “The 3D technology allows the learner to hold an organ right in front of their face and manipulate its orientation. Getting this controlled and realistic experience provides a deeper comprehension to students than any textbook could.”
