Essential Anatomy 5 Comments & Reviews 2022

- Simple yet Stunning

The app is phenomenal. I would recommend to anyone taking anatomy, especially for learning the muscles. You can remove the muscles by layers, which is excellent to understand the order and location of each. I love how they laid everything out. There's no flipping between pages to find certain parts of the body or systems. Theyre all on one page with one menu on each side of the screen you can tap to expand. You simply add or remove a system(s) to the skeleton, then tap an organ to view, which displays a caption beneath the skeleton with plenty of information. If the caption is in the way, you can move the skeleton until the area of interest is in view while the caption remains open. The options don't end here. Best app I've come across and well worth buying the add ons at $1.99 although not necessary.

- Great app with one MAJOR flaw

First, I would like to preface this review by saying I LOVE this app. I have used it for 5 years now throughout my undergrad and now in grad school. In undergrad, I primarily used the Mac version of the app with absolutely zero complaints. Beautifully designed, great interface, really helpful, organized information and a cool interactive way to learn anatomy. Overall, great app. However, my one major flaw with the iPad version of the app corresponds with its ability to not recognize the Apple Pencil with certain functions. For example, when selecting a muscle, it works perfectly fine. But, when I try to use the Apple Pencil to tap something like “isolate” or “hide” or “fade” or whatever, it simply does not work. This is extremely frustrating, having to switch between using my fingers and using the pencil. It seems like a flaw or an oversight or something, and I would greatly appreciate amending this issue. After that, the iPad version of this app is easily 5 stars.

- Useful for introductory level courses

I have had this app for about 2 and 1/2 years now: If you are an undergraduate student in health/exercise science programs, this app will be your best buddy. It will allow you to really understand everything you are learning and it’s location/orientation within the body. This app comes with so much information and really gets you the most out of the money, even if you don’t find yourself using all of it. The basic functioning is great and really smooth. However, once you begin upper level classes this app will not be what you are looking for. You will need to buy an atlas for access to material that this app does not include. All in all, you should buy this if you are an undergraduate student learning introductory anatomy, kinesiology, etc. You should not buy this app for advanced anatomy, radio graphic/ sectional anatomy, or most other upper level anatomies.

- Superior Anatomy Program

I LOVE this program! For me, it has become an essential tool to help clients understand what's going on with their body. I train people who have multiple risks for disease or are diagnosed with disease and almost all clients have issues with their neck and/back. With a program I run specifically for neck and back pain, the use of this program has been key in educating clients about their anatomy, why they feel pain, which muscles are working during movement, which muscles are being strengthened during exercises etc. so many have had an "Ahaaaa!" moment because of it too. If you are a trainer, physical therapist, chiropractor or massage therapist, using this program will deliver so much value to the people in your care it will become invaluable. You NEED this!

- Best $15 I’ve ever spent

I’m in college anatomy and I was always so confused about which structures are where. God knows that vessels branch off into so many different places. My professor strongly recommended this app and I thought, I don’t need this, I have Google. But a 2D picture with only so many structures won’t get you far. I finally got this app because the blood vessels were stumping me crazy, and I need to learn all of them by next week. This app has helped me learn AMAZINGLY. It’s 3D, you can view structures at ANY ANGLE, you can look at one body system or multiple at a time, you can see the insides of structures and zoom in as close as humanly possible. It’s amazing. And all for the price of a meal!!

- Amazing and with great potential!!!

This app is a MUST for anyone even remotely interested in the science/medical field. Even if you aren't pursuing medical science as a career, this application is great for any person! I have taken many classes about the human body I could tell you I wish I had this sooner! Graphics are amazing! Beautiful coloring and amazing detail! I'm a senior in high school wanting to pursue a medical career and this is the best study guide ect!!! Wether 25$, 1$, or a 100$ this app is worth it! Can't wait for future updates also! I would like to see an update that allows you to further dissect the eye and maybe include common diseases associated with the human body. But who knows? There's so much to dive into and I have had this app for 2 days!😂

- DPT student

This app is a must have for anyone that requires a detailed knowledge of the musculoskeletal human anatomy. As a Doctorate of Physical Therapy student I have used this app to visualize muscle fibers for palpating during the surface anatomy course during year one and continue to use it in year 2 to further conceptualize anatomy to make sense of pathologies such as thoracic outlet syndrome and the implications of the abnormal anatomies. Being able to manipulate the views is a huge plus compared to other apps to be able to see specifically what you are after. This app is as detailed as many anatomy books that retail for a much higher cost as well as fits in your pocket if you have it on your phone. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

- Not enough detail — would look elsewhere

As a current PA student, the app is overall decent and provides enough general knowledge of how everything connects; however, it lacks detail in the skeletal system as well as spinal cord. I’m sure there is more missing, but that, specifically, has been an inconvenience and what I have noticed thus far. Additionally, each time I select a structure (particularly smaller ones) the label covers the structure. I am able to move the information box, but it is tedious and inconvenient to have the view obstructed each time. Overall, not enough detail for specific anatomical structures and I would recommend looking elsewhere if you need to know more in-depth anatomy. Many of my classmates have Atlas and it seems to have more detail

- Great but Custom hide or cut needed

This app is one of the best medical apps till date. Cheers to you guys! Just few suggestions: Please add ENT, Better eye parts & skin histology & It would be more informative if we could cut any structures in the way we want, rather than just “Hide” the selected part of the structure. Ever since you guys have launced Complete anatomy app you guys have stopped adding things to this app, so what for the users who have spent money for this app & dont want to switch to another app? Hope to see more additional contents in this app. Thanks for the wonderfull app

- Feel cheated

Okay, let me be clear; there is nothing wrong with this app. It's easy to use, the design is awesome. My compliant is, is I paid for the app, and its add-ons ($35+) and realized for a couple more dollars I could have had the Complete Anatomy app. I feel like I got cheated. If you want to pay for this app, just get the other one. I thought I was getting the best, most up to date app, and I didn't. I'm tired of app makers doing this kind of stuff. Make 5-8 versions of a app, you pay for what you thought was the best version, you open the app, and there's the link to a better version. Like I said, I feel cheated. That said, I'm keeping the app. I hope they will give a free upgrade, or 75-80% discount for the other one in the future for those who bought this one. DON'T GET CHEATED. BUY THE COMPLETE ANATOMY APP INSTEAD OF THIS ONE!!!

- Darn good, needs a few user interface tweaks

Nice app, love the true 3D (big improvement over earlier versions). A few things prevent a 5 star for me (but this is a great app). CRITICAL BUG: The muscle system is MISSING the Spinous capitis muscles! Also need a system button to toggle all bones on/off like you can connective Tissues, arteries, veins etc., I want a way to remove items from the multi-select list (as it is now you have clear everything and start over or find the part and tap it)... swipe left on the text to drop it would rock. in the multi select list: a “button” to zoom to the item by tapping on its name would be very helpful. Pen feature: There is only one color for drawing (green) and it’s not very “smooth” - options to change pen color is a must. I use partial search to find muscle groups along with multi select, every time I click an item in find it adds it to multi (perfect) BUT it closes search results (frustrating because I need to reopen it) - leave it open until closed so we can easily add multiple.

- No endocrine system?

I pay 20 dollars and it doesn’t even have all of the organ systems on it? And also, I wish it could isolate a section of the body without having to manually select every bone you want, such as selecting the entire skull, entire foot, etc. without having to hide other bones that are in the way or isolate every bone and making sure you didn’t miss one. Another suggestion is to label parts of the bones, such as the fossas, grooves, foramens, etc instead of just the bone. Most of the time you are not required to memorize and learn only the entire structure but parts within the structure. I have yet to use it for other organ systems since I just started my anatomy classes but this is already what I see from the couple months I’ve had this app.

- Still needs a lot of IMPROVEMENT

Something that's the exact same thing on this app as the fourth generation version of this app is that when you try to search a boney landmark it doesn't take you to the boney landmark. Also I wish that all the bony landmarks were labeled different colors because when I click on the tibia I can't even look or figure out where the fibular articular surface of the tibia is because it's all label as one bone. I wish you would allow all the bones to have each individual boney landmark represented so that you can click on that line mark instead of the whole bone in itself.

- Learned a lot good app but...

I thing this app is great success and whoever build the app actually is getting better from it from skeleton one but gosh it’s good but... if u r curious don’t buy bc I figured out it show the skin of the girl parts and top part and same with men so just so u know be carful and learn don’t play around with the skin part but if u r weighting a book about it good job bc that Isley a good one to draw the skin and bones Insides like all that so he thanks for the app don’t worry just for the skin part I won’t report inappropriate also I Learned lots thanks for this awesome app

- Best Anatomy App

While in massage school, a teacher used to use this app and show us the individual muscles we were working on. I found it fascinating and so helpful as someone that needs break things down to understand it. It was so helpful I bought it for my phone and my laptop. It got me through school and I use it often in my professional massage and just as a really handy tool to educate people. Everyone I show it to, in my professional industry or not is impressed by how much it breaks everything down. Worth it!!

- An essential for nursing students

This app is the next best thing to a cadaver lab and sometimes even better because it’s in your pocket. I used this app all the time with my athlete clients when I was a massage therapist, helping them to visualize structures in their own bodies to help facilitate their self-care and compliance. Now as a nursing student this app comes out again and again in skills lab and study sessions to help my cohorts and I find landmarks and supplement our studying. I can’t recommend it enough.

- Good app., some detail missing

I use this app. to determine origins and insertions of muscles for targeted Reflexology and Applied Kinesiology. It is very helpful, except that some muscles have multiple divisions that are shown as one instead of as separate divisions. For example, Longus Colli is shown in the app. as one muscle, however, it has three divisions, Superior Oblique, Vertical, and Inferior Oblique, each with distinct origins and insertions, and each with a unique head position for functional testing. There are likely other muscle divisions that are grouped, as well.

- Nothing compares!

I bought the bundle pack, all of the apps are outstanding! I'm currently getting back to school for my nursing degree- this is a HUGE help! Well worth the money! This app has also allowed me to isolate to the connective tissue level and show exact pinpoint of elbow pain to my doctor. (He was impressed with this app and now uses it as a tool to help his patients “See” what’s going on when he’s explaining something to them in laymen’s terms so they can understand without confusing 2D diagram printouts!)

- Simply Smashing!

I am not a doctor or medical professional - I am a patient who has had 15 surgeries. After listening and trying to clearly understand what my doctors were telling me about each surgery, I needed help. This beautiful app is the most amazingly succinct way to visually understand what is happening to my body. Thank you for creating such a powerful and easily interpreted anatomical reference that even someone stuck in a hospital bed can truly appreciate!

- AMAZING! Just a few annoyances

This app is INCREDIBLE and is changing the way I can learn in my college anatomy classes. I love every feature about it and the attention to detail that was put into designing it. The one thing I don't appreciate is how, when you are viewing a single organ and try to turn it (as done with one finger), it rotates on the axis of the middle of the (hidden) rest of the body rather than its own axis. This makes for a complicated and awkward time easily viewing the anatomical structure, whatever it is. Unless it's the skull or spine, I suppose.

- This Anesthesiologist is amazed!

I wish I had this in medical school! This program is amazing and let's you see the human body in a way that was not possible before. You can peel back individual muscles and see what is below. The attention to detail is remarkable. I am an Anesthesiologist and I use this for peripheral nerve block anatomy. I am further enthusiastic that I got this version for $12 and almost purchased the $49 complete anatomy. This version completely satisfies me! Very impressed!

- Medical School Gross Anatomy

This app saved me so many times, whether that be clarification for orientation of a muscle, how a nerve progresses through the lower extremity, specific location for the branching of arteries, etc. Medical school is no walk in the park, so I am glad to have found an app so make so much information be manageable. (Be cautious when using the app. Some of the names are not exactly what I have been taught. Be sure to cross check your notes and only use as a reference.)

- Doctoral Student BFF

DPT has been wayyyy easier due to this little app. Origin/Insertion.... ez pz. Oh you need lymphatics this week, we got you. Oh sorry, you said cardiovascular tracts, no worries, we have that too! This app is easy and doesn’t freeze when you spin around your M/F pt and you can +/- muscle to find your exact location to determine actions. My first money-app and it was well worth the cash. A solid must have for both beginners in middle school A&P and your typical med school student. Love it love it!

- App is decent, but definitely need to include more user setting options

Decent app for the price, I like the fact that you can add on muscles by layers. One thing I absolutely hate about this app is that each time you click on a muscle, it automatically zooms in like crazy, like beyond the point to where you can even see the full muscle that you clicked on. No option to disable this zoom feature or anything. I don’t know if it’s supposed to be like this, or if it’s a bug, but please look into this.

- Worth the money 100%

If you’re taking anatomy and feel overwhelmed, this app is a fantastic source. Instant verification of what you’re looking at saves you the 15 minutes of searching through a textbook. No uncertainty. And you see a lot of things you couldn’t see on a normal model. I feel like this app should be on the required materials list for every anatomy course. I doubt you could find a better way to spend $15 to aid your anatomy understanding. And just to say, I’m not paid by these people or anything, this app has just really helped me and my learning style. I never leave reviews but felt obligated to do so for this app. If you want to pass. But this. You’ll thank me in 5 minutes or less lol. Thanks guys. I might have a chance at an A now haha.

- Best for the buck

This app is awesome for the price. I considered getting a subscription for another program that uses a subscription that is very expensive but when I found this, it allow me to look at layers, add things a little at a time or take away something. I can focus on one item and make the rest disappear. It gives information on each item ( f/ex insertion and origin of a muscle with its innervation and movements). Easy to learn.

- Ok but

They make a newer app that is better. You can get that one too at a fifty percent discount after you get this one The only thing I wish they would add is the ability to outline words in their explanations to get definitions of them. I am not a dr. I am an artist and many of the technical term, I do not yet understand. Aside from that, this and the added app that you can add are both excellent- especially the other one.

- Downgraded changes

The app no longer includes the parts and surfaces of bones and organs even though I paid for this app. How can they downgrade the app and then charge me more to regain the feature I previously already had? It was a very helpful feature for studying for anatomy and physiology lab practicals since I had to know the parts and surfaces of things as well as the overall structure. Very disappointed in the app developers.

- Wonderful

I’m going into my second year of Chiropractic School, this app has been such a wonderful tool that visually showcases everything in 3D. Highly recommend it for anyone taking anatomy, to visualize things for yourself, and to also show your patients what’s actually going on under the skin. Only down side is that some of the OAINs are slightly outdated with wording, and need to be updated with current texts.

- Awesome App For Any Medical Student!

I am taking a few anatomy classes before applying to nursing school, and this app has changed the way that I study. I love how easy it is to use. The "Fade Others" feature is very helpful, especially when studying muscles. I appreciate that the app not only identifies structures, but gives you a description and function for each one. Amazing. This app is worth every penny. Thank you.

- Simply the Best!

July 2017 update: Still the best & most useful. As a chiropractor, I explain muscles & joints daily. I have purchased several other anatomy apps, and the apps by 3d4Medical are the best for accuracy, flexibility, and frequent upgrades and bug smooshing. Best example: I'm able to do an on-screen "dissection" to show a patient what structures are under a painful area. The other apps have mistakes in labeling (or no labels), and are usually not flexible.

- Excellent App for Med school

I am a first year medical student studying anatomy now and so far the app has had every detail that has been tested without having to make any additional purchases. Even some of the clinical correlates are included but not all of them. Everything is easily identifiable with beautiful graphics. The app is very easy to use. I would Strongly recommend this app for all medical students.

- Outstanding App.

This app is amazing! I've used this for work (medical device development), better understanding fitness techniques, and general anatomy education. Being able to manipulate the models is tremendously educational and is about the next best thing to having a cadaver handy. :-p The expansions to this app are fantastic as well. I use iMuscle regularly. Also keep an eye out for bundle deals for this app as they are very cost effective.

- Apple pen

Apple pen doesn’t seem to work on some portions of the info box. (Hide, isolate, fade, etc). Also the slice feature only seems to appear when it wants too. Would be nice to be able to add and subtract the skeletal system too because it often gets in the way. The quiz function should have the option to organize things by region. I.e. “back” “upper extremity” instead of by system. My anatomy class is organize by region and all systems are learned together per region. Otherwise pretty useful app.

- Difficulty finding system

It is difficult to go from muscular system to skeletal system. I think it would be easier to go to home page and see the systems of the body and press button for what system you want to find, rather than typing in search engine for the system you want.

- Easily the best anatomy app on the market

The navigation is simple and straight forward. It has information on each anatomical structure, and you have the ability to search or pin notes on any structure. 4 stars because I thought I would be able to access the Mac app after purchasing the app on the iPhone, but you have to purchase it again on the Mac to be able to access the application.

- One of the most used apps on my phone

I literally use this app in my family practice clinic almost every day. I will typically use it to show patients anatomical structures and relationships, as well as to refresh my old memory when ordering radiology studies or documenting physical exam findings and I can’t remember the name of a muscle, which nerve is associated with the area, and other similar things.

- Make your 10 year old a sports med doc

I have used this app many times with patients and it is great as everyone has noted. What was incredible was that with a little guidance my 10 year old was able to use his exam and this app to narrow my acute snowboarding injury down to a popliteus strain! (I will see if my sports med docs can even give an accurate differential next week).

- Amazing

A friend showed me the version of this app for iOS Sierra and I thought it was incredible -- I'm ecstatic that the iPad version is just as functional and detailed! This app is how I survived anatomy during my first few months of medical school when I wasn't able to get up to the cadaver lab after hours to do additional dissections. A must have for any aspiring healthcare provider!

- Good reference app

I use this as a reference, for quizzes, and just to geek out on. The quizzes could be better, for example they don't give you much time to review if you got something wrong. Also, if they tracked your progress (like quizlet does) I would be able to better focus in on some areas that need practice rather than going over everything with the same amount of emphasis/time dedication.

- Awesome

I was extremely happy with my choice to buy this app. I am going over the bones in my anatomy 201 class and didn’t want to have to constantly go to the tutoring center to get a hands-on experience with the bones. This app gives me a hands-on experience and it allows me to pinpoint specific areas as we go over them in class. Easy 5 stars.

- Wish I bought it sooner

I'm a third year DPT student and I cannot believe I waited this long to purchase this app. It has helped me visualize structures and prepare for our comprehensive and board exams. I love that you can fade and hide structures in order to expose deeper ones without losing sight of the interaction between multiple layers. Great study tool! Would highly recommend

- The amazing body

This app is a vast variety of insightful information, on the workings of the human body. As a teacher of yoga I can isolate areas for instruction, in this manner I have a better understanding of how to deliver that knowledge to my classes. The app gives you an inner eye on the amazing complexity of the body, layer by layer. Wow! What an beautiful way to see inside workings and connectivity of our bodies.

- I love it!

This is so amazing!!!!!! Helping with college anatomy like nobodies business! I wish however that it did show the sutures, and separate the bones of the zygomatic, and etc. but it's awesome! And you can even take quizzes and set them to specific boy parts, like if you choose skeletal you can narrow it down to skill,rib,vertebra, feet, and you can make the timed quizzes or non timed! It's so cool!!!

- Can’t switch it to my new phone

I purchased this app on my iPhone and recently switched to a pixel. It seems that essential anatomy 5 is not available for the pixel and I would have to purchase #3 again, is there anyway to get the app on my new phone without having to buy it again? Thank you!

- Extremely useful!

I really love this app. I like how you can isolate parts of the body and really get up close to it. Something I wish they would add is when looking at the bones, not only having the name of the bone but also the names and locations of the different foramen, sutures, cavities, and other structures found on the bone.

- Incredibly helpful

I use this app all the time to educate my Alexander Technique students. Being able to isolate, fade, hide, and show connections between elements and systems, with the capacity to rotate at all angles, supports their clear understanding and thus their ability to effectively integrate information. This app makes complex anatomy accessible and intriguing. A winner.

- Essential for med school

I use this app nearly every day in med school, any time I need something clarified. Also recently discovered the beauty of the slice option and bookmark option (ex. I have one bookmark grouping all the triangles of the neck, including the skeletal/muscular/lymph/cardio systems). Better than the VH dissector program we had to pay for!

- Very basic, useful for beginners

The advertising for the app makes it appear to be more than what it is- a basic 3D anatomy for those who are just learning. Imperative body attachments missing so even at the basic level, I would be hesitant to spend money on an app that doesn’t represent the anatomy of the entire body. Unfortunately I already purchased the app and now I must spend more to find a more thorough app:(

- Doc of Chiropractic Student

Love this app. Very helpful to visualize all the systems we are learning in class. The only issue is that although it has almost everything, it is missing some things. Also, to get the more in depth area of the bones you have to upgrade to complete anatomy which was frustrating since it was in the video for this app.

TransferWise 💸

- Miss

Beautifully rendered, accurate anatomical structures. The ability to rotate and then view the model from any angle is invaluable to me, as textbooks can only present information in 2D. Isolate and fade functions are also very helpful. I haven't even explored all the features yet. Highly recommend it to students/enthusiasts of anatomy, especially visual learners.

- Best on market at an affordable price

Very handy for providing a 3D supplement to text book. It is limited in its ability to isolate clinically relevant information. For example: if you want to know where the radial nerve and key branches run (a simple diagram found in all anatomy texts) the search will only highlight the 'radial nerve' from auxilla to elbow - it will not show the paths to the hand as they are under 'superficial' and 'deep'. It would be amazing for the App to team up with a text book to produce a clinically relevant search function / pre-made prosecutions to work through.

- Just Awesome

This app is pretty amazing. If you are studying the anatomy at school, university, college or even out of general interest this app will help. You are able to dissect the body to see what lies where with there true name. It even has a quiz component which allows you to test your knowledge. Yes this app is pricey but it's definitely worth it!

- Mind blown

Trust me, it is worth the 20+ dollars. An immensely useful app that is stunning in it’s accuracy. Performance is great too thanks to excellent developments in iPad CPU/GPU power. If you are in a health course/profession and have an iPad Air or higher, you would be stupid not to get this! Great job by the developers 👍🏾

- Great for a guy like me

I have recently been diagnosed with lymphoma. With this app, I am more formed about how the lymphatic system affects other areas of my body. It has helped me get the bigger picture, which I appreciate.

- Absolutely Exceptional!

Being able to peel back the layers of muscle and get information on each individual one is great for my studies! It has truly made it a lot easier to get my Pilates degree. Would highly recommend!

- The sound function doesn’t work at all

Pretty frustrating

- Great for reference

I use this app for my reference of self study. It help me to understand more body anatomy. Recommend for anyone who already work as therapists or new engaging this career

- Great app

Good stuff can know all of muscle action, movement, what they are, all of part of body system, easy move 3D, My good user I’m massage therapist for 10years ago study massage therapy in hlomsglen Melbourne Australia Thai guy who live in Melbourne for long time.

- Best value for money

Not as expensive as complete anatomy but gives you all you need for learning anatomy. As a physio student and personal trainer this is a life saver.

- How I use this product

I work as a paramedic educator and this product allows me to explain key concepts to my students in the back of an ambulance. A very effective resource

- Great tool for learning

This is the best app for learning all aspects of the human body. It's very detailed and easy to use. I like the way you can isolate any part of the body.

- Great teaching tool

I use this app when teaching manual therapy and acupuncture. It’s great when teaching surface anatomy skills and brings a three dimensional quality to the students understanding.

- Love it.

I love it. Easy to use. Looks great. I use it with clients all the time so they can understand what we are talking about.

- waiting !!!

why have you guys stopped updating the app?? this was an awesome app but after 5th version it seems that they are only focussing on other apps from 3d4medical and stopped working to make this app even more better. what about the old users who bought this app with ~50$ ?? hoping and waiting for newer version of essential anatomy

- Fantastic tool

I use this to aid my visualisation of the anatomy when treating patients. Its amazingly versatile and unlike a text book you can manipulate the angles and tissues shown.

- Great app!

As a yoga teacher it’s great for me to have this at hand to remind myself of certain muscle groups, learn, and also to educate some of my students. Awesome!

- Great overall but some errors in model

Mine shows spinal cord going through middle of vertebral bodies, away from nerve roots! Also, much less importantly, the Latin for left inferior lobar bronchus (lateral basal branches) says dexter rather than sinister.

- Superb application

Wonderfully informative. As an aging person this app really helps me to understand what my doctor is talking about.

- This is good

Easy to use , simple, accurate, worth the money,

- Great app. Needs labels

This app is amazing but it would be great if it had labels attached to the parts so that as you rotate you can see the parts with wire frame labels attached.

- Cutting features for a subscription

Previously there were the boney surfaces, they removed this feature so that you need to subscribe to their other app. It is a great app but I can’t help but think it has been ruined by some shady business practices.

- Very good app

I wish you have more details with bone, like anterior inferior iliac spine, that would be great, Thank you.

- Great Anatomy Reference

This is a great mobile anatomy reference. It would have gained full stars if it didn't crash/freeze occasionally.

- Worth it!

Really great app, and worth getting if you are learning any form of anatomy.

- Missing a few things

Great app for the most part, cannot find fat pads though?!

- Help please

Hello I have purchased this app and was was wondering is this a once off fee or a monthly fee?

- The best app ever

I’m a Remedial Massage Therapist and I use this app everyday with my clients. I love it!!!!

- Easy to use

Great app to navigate the anatomy.

- Great

Just what I need to revise my anatomy. Love the rotation ability.

- Absolutely amazing

What an amazing app. Thank you

- Amazing

This app is a life saver for anatomy revision and everyday practice.

- Worth having it! 👍

👍 Very useful! Great help!

- You need this


- Very helpful

Great app!

- Basic

I’m in the medical field. This app gives a very basic anatomy description. Better Apps out there.

- Zero Fascial map.

Come on! Essential Anatomy would include Fascia yeah? How about a Fascial map?

- Love it

Awesome app for massage students

- Di Dall’Oglio

Awesome app for me to teach Pilates teachers

- excellent

amazing app that identify and isolate muscles

- In clinic use its tops

I've used many in-clinic instruction tools over my 50 years practice and this is by far the most outstanding. Compared to my 29th edition 1946 print Greys Anatomy, my primary Uni reference, this app is stunningly remarkable. Reading some of the nit-picking review complaints here I see some just don't appreciate how easy they have it. A hand help iPad computer that's fast, simple, light to use, affordable and then loaded up with Essential Anatomy 5 may not be a perfect thing (nothing is) but it is a superb patient education tool. I can only say a big thank-you for the vision and massive work effort. I hope you do very well out of it.

- Wow

This app is amazing- every little aspect of the human anatomy is covered, every little speck of each bone, almost every fiber of each muscle is shown. Amazing graphics, and surprisingly doesn't take up much battery life. This is like a book, a super computer almost stored on your iPhone. It has helped me to memorize and know most of the anatomy. The only thing I would say is that the exit button when you're playing the quiz doesn't work. You have to reset it first. Great app, recommend it to anybody. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 But some systems have not been included (yet).

- Great App and love it's potential.

Update v1.1. Well as promised respiratory system and more, keeps getting better and better love it. Can only see it getting better, although it does take time to get use with controls don't know if I missed it originally but the quiz section is nice as well. Thanks kept up the good work. original v1 : I love that the developer has great plans for this app, have almost every other app and have used them to assist myself in both studies and as a mine site medic. Being able to show pt exactly what has happen has been great. Thanks 3d4medical please keep it up. Update v1.1. Well as promised respiratory system and more, keeps getting better and better love it. Can only see it getting better, although it does take time to get use with controls don't know if I missed it originally but the quiz section is nice as well. Thanks kept up the good work.

- A thousand times easier than books

As others have said, a must for anyone that has to learn anatomy. An incredibly valuable addition to dissection. A Wishlist though: make it possible to remove the skeleton all at once, make it possible to search a structure and then isolate it without having to manually hide everything on top, let it save your place for next time you open it ... Apologies if these Inge are included and I just don't know how to do them, but if not they'd be a big help.

- Only anatomy app you will ever need!

I'm using an iPad Air so on my device it's smooth sailing. I'm currently studying podiatric medicine at uni and this app is really the only app I'll ever need. I have purchased both 'ad ons' for 10$ each but it's still much cheaper than a text book and won't get outdated, but UPDATED! The additions, which includes videos, origin, insertions, bony landmarks and more are a must for me but not really necessary if you don't need that depth. What a fantastic app! makes a quick bit of revision easy

- As the title states; Essential!!

App is amazing for finding origin and insertion of the different muscles. Very good for learning all the basics of anatomy to know where things are around the body. Only thing missing would be to isolate groups of muscles together while hiding the others around it. Would also be good to incorporate active movements as a small picture or gif to explain further what muscles do what. Overall worth the money price and definitely an app to get for studying anything to do with anatomy.

- Excellent for Students & Teachers

This is an excellent app. I've been using it everyday in Secondary School for my Biology class learners. I also use it myself to have a journey through the human body every so often. The images are really clear and there is tons of information. I use this on my iPad Mini and it works fine. Well worth the money and extremely useful.

- Great, but for the $$ could be better

I'm currently studying remedial massage and thought this app would be perfect as many of my classmates have other 3D apps. On the whole it's great and the detail in the graphics is amazing. The quiz's are good too....BUT..... It definitely needs a couple of things to make it better: Bony landmarks, there just isn't enough of them or much detail at all. The text information on origins, insertions and actions is good, but other apps show these 'in motion' which makes learning and understanding them so much easier. Add these features in and it will be an outstanding app.

- Fantastic aid to learning

This app has helped me so much from the clear layout of anatomy. Great work in presentation of layers which has helped in being able to understand more completely of the makeup inclusive of the explanations. I would love to see an add-on of being able to move the parts. Thank you for your great efforts and results.

- Great App, but

I'm a medical student and this app is a must-have for anyone that studies anatomy. However, it does not support half screen mode with other apps on iPad Pro. I would consider that to be an essential feature since I often use this app alongside with my lecture notes or anatomy textbooks. Also, I do not wish to see advertisement in regards to other products you offer every time I switch on the app or at least give me an option to turn it off.

- Helpful to ageing people like me

A massage therapist used it to show me what he was treating and how. He also gave me the name of the app. As we age we develop all sorts of aches and pains, which the app can help explain, but obviously doesn’t cure.

- Wrong muscle action

So my only complaint was that the app had the wrong muscle action for the levator scapulae which can be very detrimental to a student. Now I wonder which other muscles actions are wrong, doesn’t feel very reliable. Otherwise it’s a very detailed tool.

- Add on disappeared?

In July purchased an in app add on, Essential Anatomy 5, Muscle System Plus. It was amazing to show clients. Now it’s gone? What’s going on ?

- Potential function of acupuncture

I really like how accurate anatomy your app is. Is it possible to add acupuncture points on your app? And add a ruler function too?

- Very helpful

Extremely helpful in studying anatomy and in anatomy based clinical practice such as regional anesthesia

- No one to contact regarding issue

Every link on their page for contact is “broken”, which makes it impossible to report an issue. Bought the app for $30 before realizing it wasn’t even the “full” version… It also wouldn’t let me upgrade beyond that, so I’ve moved onto another app. Would be nice if I could talk to someone to sort this out

- Deletions in newest update

Super disappointed that in the latest update certain search terms have been removed. When working with clients it was incredibly useful to be able to quickly search “wrist&hand” or “arm” or even “skin” and either highlight, fade, or hide that part of the body to more clearly see features without obstruction. Now that I need to select each bone of the forearm individually before I can see the pelvis unobstructed from the side, the amount of time required to use this app makes it essentially useless during consultations.

- Love it but needs improvements

I’ve noticed so errors in the past or issues with viewing certain parts of different systems. But over all it’s great.

- Great app

I have found the app an asset to allow me to understand the muscle structure in areas I experience problems.

- Langue

Il serait utile pouvoir choisir la langue par exemple le français car votre application est géniale

- Version française SVP

Ils devraient offrir la version française, pour une meilleure compréhension.

- Search function is broken

Not so useful without the search function.

- Great app

Love the app but is there a way to stop the zoom in action every time you click on a specific muscle? Thanks!

- Everything you need for med school anatomy

Very helpful hide (to look at deep structures) and info features on the anatomical models make this the perfect study tool in conjunction with cadaver labs in medical school. Would be great for any other human health programs as well!

- Well done!

A perfect tool for medical students and clinicians. Easy to use and powerfull to refresh your memory or to explain anatomy to your patients. I use it as a physiotherapist and I strongly recommand it to doctors, especialy surgeons. You can get combinations ex.: bones/ligaments; bones/muscles; etc,… and point of views that no anatomy book could provide. Christian L’Ecuyer pht

- Question about compatibility to MacBook

Hello, I bought this app a while ago on my iPhone but was wondering if I could buy the same app for free on my MacBook?

- Avis personnel

C’est une bonne application pour apprendre l’anatomie par contre j’ai été déçu du fait qu’il ne soit pas en français car je ne comprend que très peux l’anglais alors peut-être y faire une mise à jour pour que celui si y soit en français de même que cette application ne fonctionne pas avec le multitâche de mon iPad je ne suis donc pas en mesure d’y apposer une seconde application à côté pour y faire deux chose en même temps sens avoir besoin de déplacer l’application à mainte reprise puisque l’information y est cachée. Merci de votre compréhension

- Orthopedic Surgeon Qc

This is an excellent app that I use to explain to my patients their anatomy, pathology and surgical options. I strongly encourage your team to develop a surgical approach and/or procedure interactive version to help surgical residents learning and patients understanding of their surgeries. Thanks a lot!

- Details

Not enough details of part of the bones ex. Acetabulum, acromion, malleolous, olecranon , etc

- Client

This great for my clients. I can show them what the focus is and how the mechanics of their actions influence their pain. I love it too! :)

- Amazing tool for studying!

This has been a savior when studying my rmt course

- Only thing missing for me

Loving the app. Very helpful with visuals and association with where things are in space and relationship to its surroundings. Markings on the bones would be helpful. For example, intertubricular sulcus of the humerus. Or Greater trochanter of femur. This is the only aspect of anatomy that I have had to look else where. Unless I am missing it! Thanks for all you do.

- Love this app

It really has allowed me to understand and treat the real issue...i thought it was my bulged disc for 25 years....but it was my QL!!

- So Handy!

Great app to have for quick references and explanations that require visual aids

- Detailed

Incredibly detailed, intuitive and beckons to be explored. Very fun.

- Bad to the bone

Awesome but would be great if the bones had more detail: fossa, foreman etc

- Recrus abdominus!?

I love this app and use it on a daily basis but the only thing holding me back from the 5th star is the layering of the abs, as far as any anatomy taught in university and in the respected textbooks, the RA should not be deep to the obliques but rather superficial to them, the most external muscle to the group.

- I paid for the premium and it was taken away from me

I bought the premium features of this program and it’s gone back to the stock feature just a month or two later. My account was still charged.

- Incredible

I am really satisfied with this app !!

- Superb Anatomy App

Amazing program. My go to whenever I want to refresh my memory or show someone an anatomical feature. Love it.

- More details please !!

Great app for med. students but still needs some updates like it should support split screen view and specially showing the regions of origins and insertions of the muscles.

- Essential Anatomy 5

A dynamic tool that allows you to manipulate the skeleton plus all seven layers of muscle, tissues and organs in a way the that brings life to the human body without leaving your chair. This tool is amazing for all learning styles! I use this app everyday for my own understanding and to teach and I form my clients! Truly amazing!! Thank you!! Tracey Burton

- Fascinating!

Recommend this by my doctor. It's more expensive than some other apps, but it's certainly worth the price! Get the muscles and bones packages too, they're helpful. Would be great to have a dissected specimen library to compare the 3D model with real specimens.

- Best one available

Worth every penny

- Need split screen suppport

Great if it had split screen to take notes from another app.

- Outstanding!

I love to review anatomy using this app. It is awesome!!

- This is outstanding

It helps me understand the body & the systems very well. Thank you very much for creating this app! It is extremely Amazing for us who are in the healthcare field.

- Need

Portable, lightweight, I can use it across multiple devices, and it shows the relationships between different systems. When explaining the mechanism of injury to the average person, a picture really is worth a thousand words.

- Great study guide!

This app is great! My only wish is it had the boney landmarks as well.

- Excellent

Excellent resource! I absolutely adore this app.

- Amazing App

I’m taking first year anatomy, and this is an amazing app.

- Wonderful app!

It's an amazing app! For sure! I love it.

- Incredibly useful!

This app is amazing - especially with the add on for how each muscle moves!

- Missing crucial part

Missing the ability to view the different surfaces and parts of bones like on the desktop version. Wouldn't have paid for this app if I knew beforehand.

- ❤️

Love it. So cool!

- If that app existed when I was in high school...

... i would've succeeded in becoming a doctor. Pros: Phenomenal model. Beautiful textures and pixel shaders. Clean funtionalities. Intuitive navigation. The best there is out there, hands down. Cons: UX/UI could still be improved when isolating and hiding features to study specific structures. App could greatly benefit from localization to other languages (French? German?). Some mistakes, typos are found here and there. Small text (iPhone 6+).

- Wow !

Dommage qu'il ne puisse être utilisé en français :o(

- 3D4medical

Je suis étudiant en physiothérapie et cette application est vraiment géniale pour réviser. Je préfère de loin avoir tous les systèmes du corps en 3D sur une tablette pour 20$ plutôt que d'avoir un modèle de colonne vertébrale a 150$.

- Amazing!

This app worth every penny. Very useful for all health professionals.

- UpdateThe app is perfect again

The app is working great again
