4 Secondary VR Science Apps

These are from the curriculum department. TOS and Terms of Use are reviewed by them prior to implementation.

Anatomy Apps

Anatomyou facilitates learning through the 3D interior orientation and location of the essential anatomical structures for minimally invasive medical procedures:

    • Circulatory System - limited access with free version (does not show path of blood through heart)

      • Arterial System - Tours starting from the aortic arch heading to head and lower and upper limbs (in app purchases)

      • Venous System - Tours starting from the head (superficial temporal vein) and reaching superior cava vein.

    • Gastrointestinal Tract

      • Superior Tract - Tour starting at the mouth (ingestion) and ends at the exit from the stomach (the remaining tract are in-app purchases to continue a path to the anus (excretion).

      • Female Reproductive Tract

      • Uterine Tract - Tour from an internal iliac artery, through reproductive system, and reaching vagina.

    • Nose and Throat Tract

      • Lacrimonasal Tract - Tour through the nose and throat tract from ocular until nasal orifice.

    • Additional Systems (for a price)

      • Circulatory

      • Transbronchial Tree

      • Urinary Tract

      • Gastrointestinal Tract

      • Female Reproductive System

 

Blood-stream VR (2D-3D)

        • Bloodstream

        • Central Nervous System

Anatomy & Physiology:

7 (A)  illustrate conduction systems such as nerve transmission or muscle stimulation;

(8)  The student explores the body's transport systems. The student is expected to:

(A)  analyze the physical, chemical, and biological properties of transport systems, including circulatory, respiratory, and excretory;

(B)  determine the factors that alter the normal functions of transport systems; and

(C)  contrast the interactions among the transport systems.

(10)  The student investigates structure and function of the human body. The student is expected to:

(A)  analyze the relationships between the anatomical structures and physiological functions of systems, including the integumentary, nervous, skeletal, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and reproductive;

Biology:

(Bio.10)  Science concepts. The student knows that biological systems are composed of multiple levels. The student is expected to:

(A)  describe the interactions that occur among systems that perform the functions of regulation, nutrient absorption, reproduction, and defense from injury or illness in animals;

 

InMind VR  

-allows the player to experience the journey into the patient’s brains in search of the neurons that cause mental disorder.

Random 42

-storytelling format, combined with this state-of-the-art technology, gives the user a detailed understanding of biological processes. Provides free Cardboards

Good overview of structures - cell, DNA biomolecules (lipid), neuron, muscle and other

Cardio VR

No educational benefit (good VR practice though)

 

Anatomy Learning (Non VR)

 

Anatomy & Physiology:

5 (A)  explain the coordination of muscles, bones, and joints that allow movement of the body;

(10)  The student investigates structure and function of the human body. The student is expected to:

(A)  analyze the relationships between the anatomical structures and physiological functions of systems, including the integumentary, nervous, skeletal, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and reproductive;
