BodyMap creates the ‘Google Map’ of the human body
Amazing new virtual reality toolset allows medical students and professionals to view and interact with the body in a fully immersive setting.
By Karelyn EvE Lambert —
In the not so distant past, students and medical professionals had to read textbooks to gain knowledge of the human body’s anatomical systems. Using photos, text and their imaginations they pictured how these interactions looked in real life. Now thanks to virtual reality, they can have actual first-hand interactions with these systems.
BodyMap™ Pro aims to replace traditional textbooks by allowing users to experience the human body using virtual reality. With medically accurate models created using real MRI and CT scans of the human body, students and medical professionals are able to
experience all the body systems.
Human body function modules are included for the cardiovascular system, digestive system, endocrine system, integumentary system, lymphatic system, muscular system, nervous system, respiratory system, skeletal system, urinary system and reproductive system. Users can view these systems in all of their glory in either the male or female body. They can also see first-hand how the systems are related to each other and how they interact. Using the HTC Vive VR controller, users can experience each body system and its functions as well as cross sections.
It is no surprise that this new virtual reality tool has been dubbed ‘the Google Map’ of the human body. It will be exciting to see what a new generation of medical professionals trained with this intricate tool can accomplish.
