BioDigital: 3D Human Visualization Platform for Anatomy and Disease

BioDigital: 3D Human Visualization Platform for Anatomy and Disease | technologies | Scoop.it
The 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
John Dalziel's insight:
BioDigital Human lets users check out every inch of the human body in a Google Maps-like interface. 
It’s a fascinating, detailed look at every nook and cranny of the male or female body, including... 
■ a bare-bones skeletal body, 
■ individual organs, 
■ muscles, 
■ veins and arteries, 
 ...to a fully fleshed out body. 
From a menu on the left, users can choose what system they want to look at (like the respiratory system or the cardiovascular system) and only that will be highlighted, along with a clear explanation of what it does. 
 In the same way, the “Conditions” tab highlights common ailments or medical procedures like an angioplasty or diabetic kidney problems, complete with a detailed explanation. 
NOTE: BioDigital Human has a premium version, but the free version will, for most users, be good enough.

Ouch! The new game from the Science Museum where you wage war on pain!

Ouch! The new game from the Science Museum where you wage war on pain! | technologies | Scoop.it

Scientists have proven that mood levels affect how intensely people feel pain, and that spider venom could hold the key to future pain treatment.


All this and more is explored in a new game called OUCH, part of the Science Museum’s latest exhibition, Pain Less.

 

The game challenges players to inflict injuries on an unwitting protagonist.

 

Players then defend a pulsing brain against waves of pain signals using an arsenal of placebos, painkillers and spider venom.

 

The game’s a simple point and click game, providing a fun addition to a lesson about medicines and the body, and as a good discussion starter about the use of painkillers.

BioDigital Human: Explore the Body in 3D!

BioDigital Human allows users to...
- choose between a male and a female body;
- decide which organ systems they wish to make visible and
- pan and zoom around the entire body.

 

For teaching about the human body it’s fantastic, especially as Google is apparently going to retire their Google Body Browser.

 

Works best in Google Chrome but I followed the instructions in FireFox and It also worked well!

 

Note: It takes a little time to load.
