“If you are in the medical field or plan to be, this anatomy app is a must-have.” — App Advice
“... strikingly realistic and detailed...” — The Boston Globe
“... mind-blowing, and always amazing in that it works so well.” — David Pogue, Yahoo Finance
“Visible Body’s [Human Anatomy] Atlas and frankly, all their A&P apps have always been my go-to reference for exploring the human body and its function.” — Teachers with Apps
Human Anatomy Atlas offers the most complete human anatomy atlas available, as well as a fast to learn and easy to use ad-free experience. The base purchase includes complete male and female gross anatomy models that can be dissected, common muscles actions, select microanatomy models and sample animations. Additional in-app purchases can extend the atlas to include more detailed 3D dental models, and animations that explain physiology and common pathologies.
We now support iPad Pro (3rd Generation) in full screen mode!
New, fast feature to study the muscles that attach to each bone! Select the bone, and see the options to view the surface area of attachment and use pins that reveal origin and insertion details for each muscle that attaches to that bone.
Tag structures! Use the new 3D labels feature to show the name of multiple structures on screen. Use this feature for interactive presentations or to create study cards.
Faster search for character-based languages! For those of you using the app in Chinese or Japanese, our robust search engine now includes Pinyin and Hiragana characters.
And, as always, bug fixes and performance enhancements.
Note: This app runs on: iOS 12.0 or later, iPhone SE, iPhone 5S or later, iPad mini 2 or later, iPad Air or later, iPad (5th generation), and iPad Pro or later.
Ratings and Reviews
It's all there! No worries about needing in-app-purchases
I was hesitant to buy this app given how much content was being offered for such a low price. I was worried it was a shell app, with any specifics requiring in-app-purchases. This was NOT the case. It's complete, stand-alone, and detailed.
I have used this app to help me locate neuroanatomical structures doing my study of the brain, and it has served me well. The models are detailed and there are tons of useful features with a reasonably low learning curve. Not all things are perfectly intuitive, but they aren't too difficult to figure out and get used to.
One feature I haven't yet found is a back button that reverts to the previous view: occasionally I'll accidentally click something and the view will radically change, and I can't easily navigate back. Another useful feature for neuroscientists would be BA/functional regions, and I would gladly pay for an in-app-purchase to get them.
Fantastic. Best App I have found for studying the brain.
//UPDATE: due to Apple's servers being down, after updating the app it appeared that I needed to buy it again. This was just a temporary glitch, and not he fault of this app. After Apple got their servers back up everything was great again, but it's a shame that a problem of Apple's led to it looking like this app was trying to make me pay twice. Not the fault of the devs, and they should be compensated for the bad reviews (mine included) that were written at this time.
Great anatomy app
I am a faculty member teaching Point of Care ultrasound to medical students and residents and physicians and I found the app very helpful to review anatomical details and also to develop course content. It would be very helpful to have corresponding ultrasound images in both labeled and unlabeled format with some animations in augmented reality for the ultrasound images with both normal and pathological findings. Point of care is a rapidly growing area of ultrasound and will be an integral part of medical education as well as education for medical residents and so it would be great to have that feature as well. Something to look into and if you need any tips you can look at some ultrasound simulation products by companies like Simbionix 3D systems and CAE. For sure that feature would be welcomed by the medical community and will address a real need in medical education. Thanks.
Best anatomy reference to date, excellent value
There is so much information, and the interactive nature makes it easy to explore it all. I was hesitant to buy at first since I’m studying art, not medicine, and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to get much use from it. However, compared to the price of a textbook, it’s really not that much at all.
This app is the core resource I use to study anatomy. It has information on attachment points for everything, which is helpful for memorizing the shapes and functions of bones.
My only complaint would be that the male/female toggle doesn’t show much sexual dimorphism. The male and female skeletons are almost exactly the same, with only the pelvic girdle different. For example, the shape of the spine, the angle and separation of the femurs and the size and shape of the skull are the same when they should not be, which would also affect the posture of the model. My guess is that to get those differences modeled would be an enormous amount of work, and at any rate it’s not especially important unless you’re in art or forensics.
Being able to spin around the anatomy and virtually dissect the models is amazing. Also impressive is the animations showing how the muscles operate.
