Human Anatomy Atlas

Human Anatomy Atlas is a 3D visualization and learning tool used to explore the systems of the human body. It contains more than 4,600 anatomical structures, including all major organs and systems.

  • Male and female 3D models, each with 4,600+ structures
  • Microanatomy 3D models, including eye, ear, skin, and tongue
  • 3D animated models of muscle actions and maps and pins that detail origin and insertion points for muscles
  • 3D models of bony landmarks with additional reference text that details features

Muscle Premium

Muscle Premium is a 3D interactive dive into the muscles of the human body. It presents an in-depth understanding of muscle attachments and actions.It includes:

  • 3D Atlas section that is fully interactive and includes 600+ muscles, 200+ bones, hundreds of peripheral nerves, ligaments, and bursae
  • Pronunciations and definitions for all structures, including details on blood supply and innervation
  • Enhanced by pins and a painted skeleton that reveal points and surface areas of muscle attachments
  • Muscle Actions section with hundreds of moving muscles organized into dozens of common actions
