Primal's 3D Human Functional Anatomy

Our popular and versatile Interactive Functional Anatomy has as its focus normal muscle function and is an essential tool for teaching and learning about the anatomy of bones and muscles, and their roles in normal muscle function and common gross motor movements.

The core of the product is a collection of interactive 3D animations of the skeleton with bones, ligaments, muscles and vessels:

  • The animated 3D models can be rotated and moved with your mouse to show the function of agonist and antagonist muscles during common movements such as raising arms, bending, flexion of spine and neck etc. 

  • Select from a menu of views that allow you to focus on a particular region such as upper body, add and remove anatomy from the model and rotate to view and label all visible structures.

  • Animations which can be played, rotated and all visible structures can be custom-labelled. The animations can also be exported from the software as short movie files.

Animations included:

  • Lateral flexion of the trunk

  • Rotation of the trunk

  • Respiration

  • Opening/Closure of the lips

  • Elevation/Depression of the eyebrows

  • Elevation/Depression of the TMJ

  • 70 short animations show muscle function during flexion, extension, adduction, abduction and more in visually stunning 3D

  • 8 gross motor animations including walking upstairs, standing from sitting, jogging and walking.
