Rent the Virtual Reality DARMMODELL from XCYDE

XCYDE created a virtual twin of the 65-foot-long (20 meter) DARMMODELL from the Felix Burda Foundation that can be walked through. The virtual model teaches in-depth information about the colon in an entertaining way while also showing the development stages of precursors of colon cancer. And it does so in a very limited amount of space!

The Virtual Reality DARMMODELL

With our VR DARMMODELL, we want to help appropriately raise awareness about colon cancer among all age groups, including young people. They are the generation that is being increasingly affected by colon cancer!

The virtual model makes it possible to display and experience the abstract and rather unpopular topic of “preventive care for colon cancer” in a highly modern and entertaining way. Without any previous medical knowledge, any individual can now look at the human colon and existing disease symptoms from the inside to gain a better understanding.

With a VR headset and controller to navigate teleportation, it’s possible to virtually walk through the entire organ. Informative signs with an audio guide escort spectators through the tour.


3D data from the DARMMODELL was transformed into virtual reality with XCYDE’s software system PORTER where information was added about the human colon. Users can learn about potential pathological changes inside the colon that can turn into colon cancer. The virtual DARMMODELL also shows the spectator how effective preventive medical care can be practiced and how colon cancer can be prevented!

Do you have limited space? We have the solution! In addition to the 65-foot-long (20 meter) DARMMODELL from the Felix Burda Foundation, the VR model makes it possible to take the tour in very limited amount of space. Equipped with a VR headset and controller, you interactively learn in-depth information about the “high-performance” organ: the colon.

Preventive care is what really counts! The once abstract topic of preventive care for colon cancer can be experienced and understood thanks to the DARMMODELL. From a healthy colon to the precursors of colon cancer. Incorporating virtual reality also appeals to younger generations!

Preventive care is vividly conveyed! The virtual DARMMODELL guides “visitors” through the inside of the colon step by step. Informative signs are read aloud by an audio guide and explain disease symptoms as well as the prospects presented by preventive care & early detection of colon cancer. At the same time, “live” investigation of what is being described is possible.
