An amazing reference for anyone interested in the human musculo-skeletal system. Featuring five different ways to learn about the body: The VIEWER, ACTIONS, 3-D MODELS, nine types of QUIZZES, and the MEDIA section.
VIEWER: The viewer allows you to control a 3D view of the body, with labels that lead to full screen images of 145 muscles each with the name, action, origin, insertion, nerve supply and comments for each muscle. The viewer also includes all the bones with detailed landmarks.
ACTIONS: The best way to learn about muscles is to group them into their actions. In this section, choose from over 37 body actions, and see an animation of the action, with a visual list of muscles that perform that action, plus comments in each section.
3D MODELS: There are seven 3D models, each model allows you to control a body area in 3-D space, with multiple stops along the way that identifying the structures and give comments on each area. Models cover the ankle, knee, pelvis, shoulder, face, hand, and a detailed look at the vertebrae.
QUIZZES: 9 types of quizzes! 18 pages of label matching quizzes where you have to match a name to the correct location. Multiple choice quiz builder that allows you to test the name, action, origin or insertion for each muscle. Skeletal quiz tests your knowledge of each bone name. These two quizzes feature adaptive quizzing which adds your missed answers to the Favorites, allowing you to test yourself on only what you have missed (or create your own quiz on just what you want to learn). The Action quiz tests your knowledge of every joint action in the body. The Spelling quiz tests spelling of muscle and bone names. The general quiz tests your knowledge of general muscle and bone anatomy subjects. You can also email your scores to an instructor or friend.
MEDIA: Thirty beautiful pages of basic muscle and bone info along with common musculo-skeletal conditions. Five imbedded videos (16 minutes) that give the basics of the muscular and skeletal system. These videos cover the arm, torso, face, leg, and fascia.
If you want to experience the future of digital education, this app is a great example of combining beautiful imagery, knowledge and interactivity, utilizing the full power of the iPad.

Ratings and Reviews
LMT education and client education
I used this app in lieu of bringing Trail Guide to the Body to class, during my initial education and in all continuing education.
I occasionally take quizzes as a refresher.
However, this app shines in client education. Especially if they have been misinformed by personal trainers or the Great Fount of All Knowledge, the Internet.
I can show them the screen while manipulating the muscle or moving the related joint.
I use it on an older iPhone (5 series), iPad and iPad mini. It’s a bit of a struggle for older eyes on the phone screen, but the tablets are easy to see.
Best Anatomy Tool!
I am a professional fitness instructor and personal trainer and I love using this app. It's quick and the voice feature is awesome because I want to make sure that I not only know what I'm talking about but I can say the name correctly. I really like using it.
Why can't I hear the names???
I really like this app... But I'm having trouble with the sound. I pick a muscle and tap the sound to hear the name of that muscle and I hear nothing.
I want to give this app 5 stars but unless this problem gets fixed I can only give it 3. It would be a really good app if everything worked as it should, I hate to give it a bad review, but just be careful if you want an app that lets you see, read and hear all the muscle names. I really hope they fix this. If they do it's 5 stars.
