What are we doing

We are building an evidence-based biomechanical 3D model of the human body, create high-quality, interactive illustrations of the model, and share them on this website to provide a resource for teaching and explaining anatomy.

More advanced and immersive experience in understanding anatomy is possible through our applications. Currently we have two of them available for the variaty of platforms. Each application is focused on the particular and complex anatomy topic: The Biomechanics of the Spine and The Skull, Teeth & TMJ.

Website Status

We have completed the articles on the human skeleton and continue to create pages on the joints, ligaments and muscles. The latest page added to the website is dedicated to the masticatory muscles:

Andreas Vesalius. De humani corporis fabrica. Quarta musculorum tabula

Ouroboros & Tree

The pictogram of a tree surrounded by an ouroboros (a serpent eating its own tail) symbolizes the cyclical nature of knowledge – its perpetual growth and rebuilding, conveying the idea of continuous learning and knowledge acquisition. Paragraphs, chapters, or entire webpages marked with this symbol are about topics with a variance of interpretation in the scientific literature. Therefore, this information should be treated critically, as it represents the author's subjective view that may change if new data become available. We do not claim absolute truth here but rather expose the controversy of the current state-of-the-art knowledge."


The manicule pictogram: Essential for anatomy studies, this small hand, reminiscent of medieval books, serves as a legacy from our past. Information marked with this symbol is dogmatic and presented scholastically, requiring no additional context."
