Below are two practical AR apps to engage students in immersive learning experiences about the human anatomy. The firs app, Dissection XR, is now free and only for a limited period of time (Its actual price is $18.99). Using these apps students will be able to explore the human body in 3D; learn about the different bones it is composed of; explore its muscle groups; access virtual dissections of its respiratory, urinary, and reproductive systems and learn about the anatomical structures underlying them. 3D Anatomy app has the added feature of 3D location quizzes allowing students to test their medical knowledge as they learn human anatomy.
This app provides students with an AR human anatomy lab where they can study human anatomy using 3D scans of real cadavers. Using the power of augmented reality, Dissection Master XR provides 3D datasets of professionally dissected human bodies. “The 3D datasets are displayed with high level of detail and organized in layered groups. Browse from outer muscles to inner organs and study human anatomy with ultimate precision. All datasets are professionally dissected with focus on medical studies and then digitized in very high resolution. Organs and anatomical structures are carefully named and linked to Wikipedia for further information. The app comes with 7 high resolution 3D datasets of head and thorax. Additional datasets will be continuously added”.
2- 3D Anatomy
This is another excellent app to help students learn about muscles and bones in 3D using muscle action movies, 3D location quizzes, and audio pronunciation. It features a skeleton of the human body that contains the following: all types of bones and their markings, over 140 muscles, ligaments, nervous system, respiratory system, urinary system, reproductive system, 3D ear, 3D eye, and circulation (arteries, vein and heart). Some of features it offers include: over 100 muscle action movies, 3D location quizzes, integrated search functionality to search for anatomical structure and 3D locations, virtual dissection, major bone markings, muscle descriptions, latin names, information from Wikipedia and Gray’s anatomy text, and many more.
