Essential Anatomy 2 has been listed and reviewed on the popular Softpedia index. Softpedia

“This series of apps are the best in terms of visuals, detail and functional quizzes. I also have visible anatomy atlas 2 and much prefer the Stanford based apps. Amazing for medical students!” Todd Miller (iTunes Review)

“The 3D anatomy engine and impressive graphics bring a new clarity to anatomy education with impressive accuracy.” iMedical Apps

“The app is really intuitive and is a blast on the iPad. It also provides a lot of opportunities to help teach others about human anatomy.” The iPhone App Review

“Whether as a reference for physicians or amateurs: 3D4Medicals new iPad app Essential Anatomy is the most impressive three-dimensional representation of the human body structure in 3D” IDG (Norwegian)

“I have tried Essential Anatomy on an iPad Mini and an iPad third generation and in both cases it was possible to interact with the anatomical structure with zero delay times. The fading or hiding of the muscles or other structures occurs instantaneously. Essential Anatomy is the ideal application to complement and integrate your classic anatomy atlas, thanks to an excellent and powerful 3D visualisation.” MobiMed (Italian)

“Essential Anatomy is an app every doctor, physiotherapist, OT, nurse and medical student should own. I'm also certain it's an app that will soon be required material at medical schools. Make no mistake about it - Essential Anatomy by 3D4Medical is the future of touch-based anatomy learning.” Tuaw

Essential Anatomy vs. our Pro Series Apps

Essential Anatomy was developed to provide an overview of essential, or general, anatomy. While it does include multiple systems and is more detailed than any other 3D engine on the market, it does not go into the level of detail contained in our Pro Series apps.

Our Pro Series Apps focus on the intricacies of each system and provide a level of detail that would be difficult to capture in a general anatomy app. These apps not only contain additional labeling of structures, but also media to explore the specialties of each system. For example, Skeletal System Pro contains animations showing movements for each articulation, bone structure mapping, etc. Brain & Nervous System Pro details Brodmann areas, provides tools for brain slicing and includes animations detailing important brain functions and disease states.

Support

All updates and/or changes made to your Bookmarks and Notes will automatically sync with devices linked to your iCloud account across all platforms (iOS/Mac). However, Essential Anatomy 2 Mac users may experience some delay during this process due to OSX specific functionality.

If you are having difficulty using some of the features of the app then we suggest that you view the tutorial listed below, however if you still need help then you can browse through some FAQ on our support page or just get in contact.
