Inner Body: Explore the human body like never before! With hundreds of interactive anatomy pictures and descriptions of thousands of objects in the body, will help you discover what you want to know about human anatomy, right here at your fingertips. Join the millions of students, patients  and inquisitive visitors – start your anatomy exploration by clicking on any of the systems above.

Get Body Smart: GetBodySmart represents my attempt to create a fully animated and interactive eBook about human anatomy and physiology. The contents and design of this long-term project are based on my 21 years of teaching this material at the university level.

Zygote Body renders manipulable 3D anatomical models of the human body. Several layers from muscle tissues down to blood vessels could be made transparent to allow better study of individual body parts.  Most of the body parts were labeled and searchable.

BodyMaps is an interactive visual search tool that allows users to explore the human body in 3-D. With easy-to-use navigation, users can search multiple layers of the human anatomy, view systems and organs down to their smallest parts, and understand in detail how the human body works.

Using detailed 3-D models of body parts-including muscles, veins, bones, and organs-Body Maps offers a new way to visualize and manage your health. See how the coronary artery delivers blood to the heart, and learn how plaque build-up on artery walls leads to heart disease. Locate the exact location of a pulled muscle or broken bone, and find information on how to prevent injuries. View a cross-section of the human brain, and learn which areas control certain emotions and body functions.

By offering rich, detailed anatomical images alongside links to relevant and useful health information, BodyMaps allows you to leam about your body and your health in a personalized and revolutionary new way.

eSkeletons provides an interactive environment in which to examine and learn about skeletal anatomy. The purpose of this site is to enable you to view the bones of both human and non-human primates and to gather information about them from our osteology database.

Anatomy Arcade makes basic human anatomy come ALIVE through awesome free flash games, interactives and videos. Requires Flash Player. 

Build-A-Body is a drag and drop game where players are tasked with assembling an organ system from a set of organs. Players may then attempt case studies where a functional problem with a system must be linked to the organ affected. Learn about the body’s systems with this drag and drop game. Choose organs from the organ tray, and place them in their correct position within the body to create organ systems. Will need to create a login. 

BioDigital Human™ has been hailed as “Google Maps meets the human body” and provides a glimpse into the future of medical education. At the tips of your fingers, on a sleek user interface, BioDigital Human™ is a virtual 3D body that brings to life thousands of medically accurate anatomy objects and health conditions in an interactive web-based platform.

Auriculo 3D desktop software helps you master this powerful therapy—without paging through dozens of books or consulting confusing charts. There are over 300 recognized auriculotherapy points on the ear, and thousands of combinations to treat nearly any problem imaginable. Designed for both clinical use and personal study, Auriculo 3D puts all this information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse. Pictures are two-dimensional. Ears are not. With over 300 auricular points, sometimes a flat, two-dimensional picture simply isn’t enough to see EXACTLY where to locate the point you need. Is it on the surface or under that flap? Is it on the surface that’s facing toward me, or the one that’s facing away? Guessing won’t do it; you need to be sure. That’s why we developed Auriculo 3D. Our advanced 3-D ear model lets you rotate, zoom, and move the ear so you can see exactly where the points are located. Whether hidden or open, you’ll confidently locate any point in seconds.
