Available VR Apps

Visualize and explore anatomy with life-like 3D models covering every aspect of the human body. Delve into body systems, peek under the skin, and see what you are made of. 
Analyze and visualize atoms, molecules and proteins! Import molecules from public databases such as the RCSB Protein Data Bank, Pubchem, Drug Bank, or your own computer. Grab, rotate or enlarge your molecules and measure distances or angles between atoms with your hands. 

YOU allows anyone to freely navigate and explore an anatomically accurate 3D model of the human body, its organs, and their natural function. Visualize how your body works. Explore organs and systems in a fully immersive 3D environment. Customize physiology and simulate diseases. Personalize the human body to represent YOU. The unprecedented power of YOU allows customization to display diseases in varying states of severity. By adding treatments, YOU helps visualize and understand medical options.

The platform offers a comprehensive collection of surgical operations covering key syllabus material and includes assessment. Each module allows immersive learning with full interactive features including anatomy and pathophysiology.

The Body VR: Anatomy Viewer is the only commercially available VR visualization tool that is based on patient specific medical data (e.g., MRI, CT, PET) and satisfies DICOM standards. It provides real-time, anatomically accurate VR simulations to visualize medical diagnoses, illustrate the impact of procedures and treatments, and create more educated decision-making.
