Body Systems

Take the Skeletal and Connective Tissue models for a test drive, and then get access to 10 additional highly detailed anatomical systems with the in-app upgrade, along with extra features such as muscle motion.

Showing and Hiding Systems

To turn a system on or off, press and hold on its icon. For more granular control, tap on a system’s icon to display plus and minus buttons which allow you to add and remove layers within that system. The skeletal system includes layer maps, featuring bone parts, bone surfaces, and muscle origin and insertion points.

Restoring Hidden Structures

When a system contains structures that have been hidden or faded, a small marker will appear beside that system’s icon. To return all structures within the system to being fully visible, select the system icon and then ‘Show Hidden’. To reset all structures across all systems, including hidden or faded structures and tool work, select the ‘Reset’ button in the top left of the screen.

Systems

Skeletal and Connective Tissue Systems

Each component of the skeletal system is richly detailed, with the intricate surface anatomy of each bone available to be explored via the Parts and Surfaces layers (available with upgrade).

Muscular

Explore the muscular system to reveal seven layers of muscle. Isolate each muscle to access information about its origin and insertion points, view stunning real-time muscle animations demonstrating the action of the muscle, and discover muscle innervation and arterial supply structures.

Vascular: Venous and Arterial

Follow the route that blood takes through the veins and arteries around the body. Trace the path from the heart to a selected artery using the Origin Path feature.

Lymphatic

Explore the intricate structures of the lymphatic system, including lymphatic vessels, nodes and organs.
LINK TO THIS STEP

Nervous

Delve into the nervous system, and follow the course of each nerve within the body with Origin Path. Explore the brain in stunning detail, either as an isolated organ, or as a component of the nervous system.

Respiratory

Explore our highly detailed model of the respiratory system, including the paranasal sinuses, trachea, bronchi and lungs.
LINK TO THIS STEP

Digestive

Examine the organs and associated glands of the digestive system in stunning detail, including the oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, pancreas and salivary glands.
LINK TO THIS STEP

Endocrine

Discover highly detailed representations of the organs which have purely endocrine function – including the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. (Access other endocrine organs, including the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and pancreas, via other body systems with which they are associated, such as the nervous and digestive systems.)

Urogenital

Realistic representations of the urinary and reproductive systems allow the user to explore the organs of both systems in great detail.
LINK TO THIS STEP

Integumentary

Explore three layers of the integumentary systems, including the skin, subcutaneous tissue, and the dermatomes map.
