Anatomage Tables-Virtual Lab
LIFE UNIVERSITY TECHNOLOGY
Life University’s Virtual Anatomy Lab was created in 2015 and allows students to study anatomy on state-of-the-art digital Anatomage tables, rather than cadavers. The Life University Virtual Anatomy Lab features more Anatomage tables than any other higher education institution in the world. Additionally, unlike cadaver dissection, the University’s Anatomage tables provide students with life-sized, multi-layered 3D technology as well as the ability to view CT scans, giving them a detailed understanding of a body’s systems and how they are interconnected.
All of the Anatomage Tables at Life University have thousands of high-resolution 3D images taken from actual female and male human cadavers which allows students to label, highlight and capture detailed images to study at another time on their computer or tablet. And several research studies have shown that studying anatomy and physiology on Anatomage tables leads students to be more engaged and perform better academically compared to cadaver dissection.
Students are aided by touchscreens on each Anatomage table in the Virtual Anatomy Lab which give the students the ability to zoom in and rotate images with a simple swipe or tap to get a close-up view of bones, muscles, organs, nerves and blood vessels. Furthermore, on Anatomage tables, Life University students can press “reset,” allowing them to explore and learn at their own pace without fear of losing their work.
Life University chiropractic students receive all these benefits by using Anatomage tables in the Virtual Anatomy Lab and get hands-on anatomy and physiology education without being exposed to harsh chemicals. This enhances an environment in which students employ problem-based learning and work collaboratively as they learn from each other using the latest technology in our Virtual Anatomy Lab.
