Virtual Reality

Human Anatomy VR from Virtual MedicineBook a session in our VR room to explore human anatomy up close and personal with Human Anatomy VR from Virtual Medicine. Pull apart and reposition organs, bones, and other structures while making them as large as you want. Use the quiz function to test your knowledge.

The software provides 15 body systems with more than 10,000 realistic anatomical structures designed by medical professionals. Bone mapping with 5,000 bony features organized into parts, surfaces, borders, and landmarks. 

Book the room and ask for help getting set up. It's a whole new way to experience anatomy!
