Medical Students Learn in World’s Largest Virtual Reality Anatomy Lab

Anatomy students at Taipei Medical University are now able to see every internal organ, tissue and muscle in unprecedented 3D detail, thanks to the world’s largest virtual reality (VR) anatomy lab.The lab, which opened late last year, includes 10 sets of VIVE Pro Headsets loaded with 3D Organon VR Anatomy software, allowing students to both train by themselves and in groups, as multiple users can join a virtual space and experience a human anatomy demonstration. “With VR providing invaluable course elements, we tutors become navigators to students, who can truly immerse themselves in the virtually-constructed anatomy space as if piloting the best aircraft money can buy,” Hung-Ming Chang, Director of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Taipei Medical University, said in a statement. “Through virtual reality, we may truly observe the human anatomy in ways and angles that were previously near impossible to delve into. Through a combination of static structure comprehension paired with dynamic representations of spatial human construction, we may greatly boost the understanding and interest of our medical students.” The new software contains more than 4,000 realistic human body structures, organs and physiological animations. Users can walk around in a virtual environment, while observing different angles of the body, including the skeleton, muscles, tissue, blood vessels, nerves and organs.
