Human body software, also called human anatomy software, is a type of software that is used to study or explain the human anatomy. Many schools use this software to teach doctors, physical therapists, and other health professionals about the various parts of the human anatomy. This software provides information on the human body that is traditionally found in textbooks, but provides it in a more interactive format. The type of format is believed to make learning human anatomy easier and more fun.

There are many kinds and brands of human body software; some are up-to-date, and some may not be quite as modern. It is usually very important that the most up-to-date software be used in training a medical professional. The software does not have to be as modern if it's for personal use or educating school children. Human body software often covers the entire body from head to toe, providing details on a vast number of organs, bones, and body systems.

This type of software allows the student to become quite familiar with the physiology of the human body. Some types of human body software provide close-up views of what each part of the body looks like and show information on its function. Others provide information on some of the ailments that can affect the given parts of the body.


Overall, it is generally accepted that the more information and graphics the software provides, the better it is for training in the medical world. A growing number of human body software programs are incorporating three-dimensional, or 3D, modeling to better display the parts in the body. 3D modeling is a highly detailed model of the human anatomy that provides details of muscles, tendons, and much more. It allows the student to see a part of the body exactly how it normally looks, though sometimes on a smaller scale.

Human body software may have many applications in the medical world for students and practitioners, as well as for school children or even personal use. It may even be used in less common ways, such as for artists studying the human form in depth. The amount of detail and price may vary greatly and depends on what the software is actually intended for.
