Our Content

Visible Body creates apps that advance the way students learn and healthcare professionals practice.

Ten years ago we set out to make learning and teaching anatomy and physiology visual and engaging. The idea was to give professionals and students visuals that communicated all the gross and microanatomy that made the human body amazing. For inspiration we looked away from those plastic models that sit on doctor's desks and we closed the textbooks that had flat images. We found inspiration in 3D games and mobile devices.

Today, Visible Body offers a suite of innovative, interactive 3D anatomy and physiology apps; these award-winning and best-selling apps cover gross anatomy and microanatomy, as well as physiological processes and pathologies. Adopted by over a million people around the globe, our apps are used in college classrooms, medical schools and hospitals. Each Visible Body app is:

  • Created from a database of content that includes over thousands of 3D models, illustrations and animations.
  • Crafted by a team of medical visualization experts and reviewed by professors and healthcare practitioners.
  • Available for iPad, iPhone, Android, PC and Mac, and Windows Touch devices, as seat licenses and site licenses, and for zSpace and Sectra tables.
  • Designed for specific customers: specialists within the healthcare professions, professors, instructors, and students.

Accurate Anatomy

"How accurate is the anatomy in your apps?" This is the question we get most often.

The medical visualization team at Visible Body includes six expertly trained professionals with degrees from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Rochester Institute of Technology, University of Illinois-Chicago, and the University of Texas-Southwestern Medical Center.

The content development cycle for our text, 3D models, and animations starts with our expert in-house team, who consult their vast library of textbooks and personal cadaver notes.

Our advisory board of professors and professionals critiques initial plans. Final models are developed and further reviewed by a test group of expert users.
