The BoneBox™ - Foot is a real-time 3D medical education and patient communication tool, featuring incredibly detailed anatomical models of the bones of the human foot. It is a member of a series of apps developed by a team of anatomists, certified medical illustrators, animators, and programmers using actual human CT imaging data, and the most accurate 3D modeling technology available.
The BoneBox™- Foot is appropriate for use by secondary students, undergraduate and graduate students, and medical professionals.
Interaction with the BoneBox™ - Foot utilizes true real-time 3D. Unlike many other anatomical apps and programs, there are no pre-rendered frames or animations. Therefore, the user can place the incredibly detailed foot in any position and zoom in to explore all of the anatomical structures. The user can learn by using the pre-positioned labels, study by using the interactive quizzing feature, or teach by creating and saving custom labeled pins or by drawing directly on the foot in 3D.
As the program opens, the user can explore the bones of the human foot in real-time 3D at the gross anatomical level. By selecting an individual bone, the user will see only that bone on screen where the detailed features and specific labels will be presented.
Using the Settings Tool allows the user to change the color of the drawing tool and custom pin color. The user can also change the interface to either a light or dark background color for better viewing during projection or other lighting situations.
By turning on the pre-positioned color coded pins, the user can study the names and locations of over 150 anatomical structures, including: bone names, articular surfaces, and prominent anatomical markers. The pins and labels remain on screen and in the exact anatomical location during all real time 3D user interaction.
Using the custom pin tool, instructors can place color-coded pins at a location of their choosing. Once placed, the instructor simply writes a question concerning that specific bone or location.
Drawing with the multi-colored pen tool allows the user to draw on the surface of the 3D bones in order to highlight features, locations, and anatomical structures. Perfect for lectures, labs, or study groups.
Custom pins and pen tool drawings that have been created by the user can be saved and reloaded for continued study or quizzing. Perfect for subsequent visits to the app for study by students, and for use in an entire lecture series by instructors.
The BoneBox™ - Foot is a must for any anatomy lecture or lab. By selecting to take the quiz, the user will experience an exciting, fully interactive feature that will test their knowledge of the bones of the foot. As the bones randomly disperse around the screen, the user may select any bone and is prompted to correctly name that bone.
