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, we create interactive 3D mobile apps that are not just medically accurate, but visually compelling. Visible Body's 3D, highly accurate, anatomical models of the human body are the foundation of our content. Our award-winning and best-selling apps cover gross anatomy and microanatomy, as well as physiological processes and pathologies. Our apps are:
We are proud that more than 1 million people across the globe have used our apps. Among our esteemed users are:
Visible Body also creates custom product for companies like Johnson & Johnson, Stryker, Medtronic, and Edwards Life Science. These clients rely on our apps to train sales representatives, provide surgeons a 3D environment in which to preview new procedures, and provide continuing medical education.
"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.
We are a U.S.-based company located in greater Boston, a recognized center of medical innovation. Our team includes biomedical visualization experts, educational publishing executives with decades of experience in instructional design, and programming and software architecture gurus.
"There can only be one top app which combines all of the essential functions: content, ease of use, quality of anatomical illustrations and overall benefit to practicing physicians. This is Visible Body."
