“Amazing for being able to get a 3-dimensional and inside/outside view of the muscles. Highly recommended. The best I've found yet.” — User
“This app is excellent, the best... [e]specially for students studying medicine or anything related like massage therapy, nursing or just for self knowledge.” — User
Use Muscle Premium as a personal reference, to visually communicate anatomy and function, instead of a textbook, or to create a virtual lab experience.
The app includes:
+ 3D models of muscles, ligaments, bursae, and bones—with blood supply, innervation, key bony landmarks, and textbook-level definitions.
+ 3D models of common conditions including: Cervical spondylosis, lateral epicondylitis, medial epicondylitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist sprain, rotator cuff tear, torn meniscus, osteoarthritis of the knee joint, and many more.
+ Over 50 interactive models of common muscle actions
+ Video presentations by physical therapists, doctors, and researchers that review normal anatomy and common conditions.
Purchase includes all content. No additional in-app purchases.
This app includes the option to set the display language to English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Simplified Chinese, or Japanese. Audio in the video presentations is English only; subtitles available for all languages listed.
The reference app adored by muscle and bone specialists has been expanded. In addition to 3D models of normal anatomy and pathologies, now the app includes a whole new educational video series by experts in the field!
Seven comprehensive video sets (21 video presentations in all) showcasing common pathologies and the anatomy and biomechanics related to each one. Review normal anatomy. Study biomechanics. Learn common conditions and pathologies. Each video presentation is given by a highly specialized healthcare professional.
Video sets include:
Shoulder anatomy and function
Implications of adhesive capsulitis
Stages of adhesive capsulitis
Hip labral tears

Ratings and Reviews
on all my apps!
I run an A&P lab and I find this is the best one available,,,,WORTH THE MONEY!
I love the ability to hide superficial muscles to see supporting muscles and bones.
Moving examples of joints and muscle use gives my students that “ah ha!” Moment!
Good, not great
Great for personal trainers, and undergraduate students, graduate students (PT, OT, Medical, etc.) should look elsewhere for more detail however. It's difficult to zoom from certain perspectives and the videos are rather specific (ie. at the glenohumeral joint they describe adhesive capsilitis, but go into no detail regarding the osteokinematics or arthokinematics of the joint). Also the animated movements are good for beginners, but true joint/bone/muscle movements aren't depicted very well.
Why am I not able to view any annotations?
Try to label annotations with pointers to several muscles; asks to save which I do... but when the muscle is viewed again, no notes / annotations exsit. Same issue with Human Anatomy Atlas, which I had to stop using as my notes are 80% of retention for A&P.
Also... why are there no back buttons in an app that costs so much? Why must I constantly hunt for the way to return to a previous view or function or mode?
