Essential Skeleton 4 Review

Essential Skeleton 4 is a self-contained, fully functional medical app that offers More-Than-Basic information about the human skeletal system. Essential Skeleton app is for students studying the human skeletal system should download. The app puts a 3D skeleton on your students’ iPads. Students can zoom-in, zoom-out, and rotate the skeleton 360 degrees. When students zoom-in and tap on a bone they will see its name in English and Latin, have the option to hear an audio pronunciation of the bone’s name, learn about the connected bones, and write their own notes about the highlighted bone.

The app opens with a skeleton in what an art historian might call a relaxed orant pose. Through a process of addition by means of menus on the right-hand side of the screen (which can be moved to the left for those who wish), various layers of muscles, arteries, veins, organs, nerves and other elements can be placed on the skeleton. Each can also be removed, and parts of each can also be taken away to focus on discrete subsections. 

Essential Skeleton is a great app that spans many learning levels from young children where its visual nature helps them understand the bones in their body, to secondary level where there may be a need to learn the individual bones and how they fit together.
