Visible Body’s 2019 Partnership and Integration with Google’s Organic Search Team Cited as Innovative and Noteworthy
BOSTON, MA — November 8, 2019 — Visible Body, the virtual anatomy technology company empowering a greater understanding of the human body, announced today that it was named “InnoBlazer” in the Education Technology category at the 2019 Annual BostInno “50 on Fire” Awards Celebration at the Artists of Humanity Epicenter in Boston’s South End. BostInno’s “50 on Fire” specifically recognized Visible Body’s more than 100 3D and augmented reality models integrated into Google’s organic search engine and subsequent app demonstration on the main stage at the 2019 Google I/O developer conference as the reason for the award's distinction.
“Here at Visible Body, we’re on a mission for better health education for all,” said Andrew Bowditch, Visible Body’s CEO. “Our immersive 3D and augmented reality human anatomy models are forever changing the way students learn and teachers teach human anatomy. We believe our apps can enable everyday people to better understand the bodies in which they live, and that that knowledge will lead to better health outcomes for everyone around the globe.”
BostInno’s “50 on Fire” honorees were placed within one of seven categories, and an “InnoBlazer” was identified in each; Visible Body was honored as the leader of the educational technology category. Visible Body was given a 3D-printed award, a plaque, and, with a tip of the hat to golf’s infamous green blazer, a red blazer with “50 on Fire Innoblazer” stitched on the chest pocket.
“The team here is so honored to receive this recognition from BostInno’s forward-thinking tech community,” said Maite Suarez-Rivas, EVP of product and marketing at Visible Body. “We’re committed to evolving the world’s understanding of the human body, and are proud to call the Boston tech community our headquarters and home.”
