What is Anatomy by Muscle and Motion?

Anatomy is an app that allows users to begin to develop and consolidate their understanding of how the body functions by focusing on muscular and skeletal systems, via a bank of informative videos and imagery. The app is easy to explore and has an extensive library of content.

The app is divided into four key areas: Anatomy and muscular systems, Skeletal system, Kinesiology and Energy mechanisms. Exploration of the app allows users to gain access to clear descriptions of specific muscle groups, including key terminology, their positions within the body, and their effects on the specific joints of which they act upon. Information is paired with easy to rotate imagery for a truly comprehensive view of the systems from all angles, and detailed videos provide a dual coded experience, known for its effectiveness in retrieval of information. With over 2000 videos of content the app has an extensive library of information for the most robust provision of content.

With an extensive collection of over 2000 clips, further supported by moving images and text, the discovery of information feels endless and engaging.

The ability to create new folders allows users to organise chosen videos of interest into their own bespoke categories to make the app truly personalised. Videos can also be added to a favourites folder where they can be effortlessly revisited.
