Students in Whitmer High School’s Career & Technology Center Medical Academy, which includes a Medical Technology program and a Medical Assisting program, have a high-tech new way to learn about human anatomy with this state-of-the-art Anatomage table. We also plan to use the table in conjunction with our Science Department and the Anatomy and Physiology for Career Tech courses. The Anatomage table, used by the world’s top medical schools and hospitals, and featured by TEDTalks and PBS, are described as the most technologically advanced 3D visualization system for anatomy and physiology education.
“I am so excited for our students to learn on interactive equipment and this will be such an impressive and powerful teaching and learning experience. This new equipment will give our students the unlimited benefit for understanding anatomy and the body systems and applying that understanding and knowledge once they are in the real-world of work,” Deb Heban, Career-Technical Education Director at Washington Local Schools. “This new equipment will give our students the experience of virtual learning today in our CTC Medical labs. This is going to be very exciting for our students”.
As a market leader in medical virtualization technology, described as the “world's first virtual dissection table” by the Anatomage company, this highly interactive equipment features a life-sized display, touch screen technology and enables an ecosystem of 3D anatomy hardware and software, allowing users to visualize anatomy at the highest level of accuracy. It allows the users to view photorealistic anatomical structures layer by layer and from every angle. These structures are based on thousands of real human cases that have been digitized in the highest possible resolution. According to Anatomage, research has shown that working with the table improves student retention and test scores.
