“Navigating the body couldn't be EASIER” ***** Med Students

“One of our Top 5 Apps” ***** British Medical Association

Boost your anatomy knowledge TODAY! With our award-winning app, it’s easy: retrieve any anatomical structure and relevant clinical information in an instant. Search through 1000s of anatomical structures such as ligaments, tendons, arteries, veins, organs, and glossary items. Browse by system layers including skin, skeletal, connective tissue, muscular, circulatory, digestive, reproductive, lymphatic, respiratory, urinary and more…

“User Interface: This is really what separates this app from the rest. Easy and high resolution zooming and movement. Navigating the body couldn't be easier. Of all the anatomy apps I've seen this is definitely one of the best.” *****

“Thinking of you: All the anatomy apps have the blue dots with information, but with Pocket Anatomy you can click on a muscle and it will give you origin, insertion, key relations, functions (actions), nerve and blood supply, and clinical perspectives, plus a notes section so that you can write in additional notes. Even better, in the updated version you can add pins to really CUSTOMIZE it.” *****

Our growing community of 1 Million users are becoming better medical professionals by learning and refreshing using Pocket Anatomy.

Why? The following unique combination of features makes Pocket Anatomy the superior Anatomy and Physiology product in the market place:

Confusion is easy when it comes to anatomy terms. With our intuitive search option it will suffice to type in only the first characters of the word you are looking for, or one of the words composing the main term. E.g. if you type in “trap” you will get “trapezoid” as well as “coracoclavicular-trapezoid ligament”. The more letters you type the more refined the search.

Fly around the human body swiping your finger on the screen, fluidly navigating from the skin layer through the superficial to deep musculature, and on through to internal organ structures, ligaments and the skeletal system.

Pocket Anatomy now includes full 3D male and female anatomy as well as detailed stand alone visual information on circulatory, connective tissue, digestive, integumentary, lymphatic, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, skeletal and urinary systems.

Anatomical structures in each layer are pinned for identification. Each pin is associated with additional concise relevant information and clinical notes.

Studying for your next Anatomy and Physiology exam? Add your notes next to a pin, bookmark the content you are interested in and retrieve it every time you need it. Test your knowledge with your classmates or challenge yourself with our quizzes.

Not user friendly

I’m trying to use this app as a novice, a yoga student interested in learning more about the muscles we are working in class. This app has no common language use. Curious about the IT band? This app has no clue what you are referring to. There is no back button. You touch it and it’s suddenly in a whole new muscle, or maybe it’s switched to nerves. Gotta start over. Also, so many pins. Which is the one you want? I have learned nothing but how to control my aggravation thru more yoga.

Hi there, many thanks for your suggestion of a common language use. I will let our product team know straight away. And the back button is also a great feature request. Thank you! Best wishes, Pocket Anatomy team.

I do like the app for its basic functions. I think I would suggest that the app makes it easier to cut away muscles to see all of the underlying musculature. I would also point out the bony landmarks on the skeleton to better visualize the origin and insertion points.

Hi there, many thanks for your review and for your thoughtful feature requests. I will pass these on to our product team straight away. If you have any other specific feature requests, please get in touch with us directly, as we pride ourselves on customer support. Best wishes, Pocket Anatomy team.
