Abstract

Learning anatomy requires students to memorise a great deal of information and contextualize this within the range of body functions. Visualising the relationships in three dimensions of various organs and their interdependent functions is a major difficulty in this task. The system described in this paper is a development to assist students by providing an augmented reality version of the anatomical details under investigation that provides a structured learning approach to the material. This is a research project to investigate whether augmented reality (AR) with haptics is an effective tool to learn anatomy while providing equitable access to more engaging experiences.
