Immersive VR Anatomy Learning and Simulation Training

Comprehensive Anatomy

Systems based on strict MRI- and CT data reconstruction

12 human body systems

12 human body systems are provided in BodyMap so that users may see how the systems and structures within those systems relate to one another. BodyMap body systems include: skin, skeleton, muscle, connective tissue, circulatory, nervous, lymphatic, digestive, reproductive, urinary, endocrine, and respiratory.

Male and female models

Users may easily switch between male and female models, which are displayed in 1:1 ratio, for further examination of anatomical differences between genders.

Heart Beating

The animated cardiac conduction system provides close-up views related to the closure frequency.

Microscopic & cross-sectional views

3D organizational stratification and micro-structures are presented including a skin layered profile model, a kidney profile and a genital cavity model. The animated cardiac conduction system provides close-up views related to the closure frequency, structures of heart valves and fibrous skeleton allowing users to observe the conduction and cardiovascular physiology.

High Fidelity Model

Techniques to cast anatomical landmarks

BodyMap BodyMap Pro

PBR Material

Physically Based Rendering to present bumps, roughness, specular of structures.

LOD Model

The closer to the model, the more level of details to reveal.

HDR Rendering

Easy to recognize structure contours by the high dynamic rendering of the rim light and shadow.

Interactive Flashcard

Every structure has its unique flashcard covering various topics based on the corresponding anatomical system.


When a section of the anatomy flashcard is selected, structures and labels listed in those sections will be displayed directly on the model.


Users may highlight structures within the circulatory, nervous, and lymphatic systems to observe flow pathways throughout the body


Directly isolate an anatomy structures or with its related structures for visualization.

Flexible Module

Offering alternative and fast ways to access desired content

Regional selection

Users can choose to focus on any one of or all 9 anatomical regions including: head and neck, back and spinal cord, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, upper limb, and lower limb. Selection of an anatomical region provides the user with a more localized map of that particular region.

System & Course Menu

Up to 12 human body systems provided in BodyMap may be selected at any one time to see how the systems and structures within those systems relate to one another. To break down material further for learners, there’s also a Course menu offering modular lessons.


Save learning progress or specific content to bookmarks.

Engaging User Experience

Learning through interactive options within a 3D virtual immersive environment enhances student understanding of anatomy material and is shown to improve knowledge retention rates.


The virtual body may be moved and rotated into various positions, e.g., supine, lateral, prone. Users can scale the model up to seven times the original dimension to observe each structure in detail.


Users may “grab out” structures with a virtual hand for closer observation. Once the structure is removed from the body, users may rotate and view the structure from any direction for further study.


Place marker as descriptive landmark with different colors. The attached pin can be labeled automatically with a numeric code to be easily identified during instruction.


Simulate insertion of a medical instrument into the virtual avatar. Haptic feedback can be felt in the controllers during virtual simulation, providing different intensities of “anti-force” during training simulations.


A built-in quiz feature to assess student understanding of human anatomy, where students are asked to identify specific anatomy structures. Scoring is automatically calculated and assessed at the end of quiz for additional insight on which concepts students are struggling.


Allows users to capture high resolution screenshots and export locally as medical reference for self-learning or presentation.

VR Classroom

Instructor can host an online VR session for multiple students, allowing students to view instructor interactions with the virtual body in real-time. Allowing real-time interaction between educators and students, facilitating shared learning and increased engagement.

Learning Ecosystem

Provides administrators and instructors an easy access web portal to evaluate learning progress and better design curriculum and exam.

Group Exam

Instructors can easily create exams through the question bank, and evaluate the results in real-time. Each question is shown with the historical success rate based on previous exams and user’s private quiz results.

User Management

Give users unique account and check their participation from the user management dashboard. Administrators and instructors can easily track the utilization rate and decide how to make the best of it.

Difficulty Ranking

BodyMap takes a step further to assist instructors discover difficult questions based on users response time or success rate, and can be filtered by anatomy system or body region. Instead of sorting exam results manually, instructors spend less time to customize curricula by taking advantage of this analytic tool.

Product Comparison

MAI’s anatomy software solutions consist of BodyMap and BodyMap Pro. BodyMap is the institutional standalone version for the Oculus Quest VR headset, and BodyMap Pro is the institutional PC/laptop-based version mainly designed for administrator and instructor. Please refer to the preliminary comparison plan of the BodyMap and BodyMap Pro licenses:

Comprehensive Anatomy
High Fidelity Model Medium Level High Level
Interactive Flashcard Hyperlink
Isolate 1 stage * 2 stage *
Flexible Module Reginal selection 7 regions 7 regions + whole body
User Experience Manipulation
Hide 1 stage * 2 stage *
VR Classroom
Learning Ecosystem
*In BodyMap Pro, there is an extra stage for the Isolate and Hide functions. In Isolate, all structures except for the area of interest become translucent; in Hide, the structures become transparent.
