Interactive Hand, Second Edition, 2009 Release features an interactive model of the hand, complete with close-up views of specific regions. The models can be rotated 360 degrees and can be stripped layer by layer from skin to bone. Additional text, images, and functional animations make this an all-inclusive tool for the study of the anatomy of the hand.
Interactive Hand, Second Edition, 2009 Release features detailed computer graphic models of the human hand in an updated interface that is more user-friendly than ever before. Offering the ability to view images much larger than in previous versions, the 2009 release is the ultimate educational tool for those requiring an intricate understanding of the hand’s structure and function.
Each 3D model of the hand is interactive and fully labeled with detailed explanatory anatomy text as well as links to all related content within the software, such as additional images, video clips, labeled dissections, annotated illustrations, and clinical slides. Users can rotate the models a full 360 degrees to view each specific region in complete detail and can strip away layers of the anatomy to explore the innermost workings of each part. Interactive Hand also includes an extensive list of animations depicting the motion of each joint:
Abduction and adduction of the MCP joints
Flexion and extension of the individual fingers
Flexion and extension of the wrist
Radial and ulnar deviation of the wrist
Protraction and retraction of the scapula
In addition, this program features a segment linking cross sections of each 3D model to the equivalent MRI image across three planes (axial, sagittal, and coronal) and 20 slices. These images are comparable to using an actual MRI machine to study the hand, and students will benefit greatly from these complex views. Following are some other benefits of this software program:
Users can understand and explain injuries, conditions, and treatments more effectively.
With hundreds of stunning images and detailed information at their fingertips, instructors will save time looking for images for presentations or patient education handouts.
Images and video clips can be exported with ease for use in presentations or handouts.
Interactive Hand greatly aids in the explanation of the mechanics and movements of the human hand—the most crucial body part for grasping. This software brings the intricate details to life and serves as an incredibly significant resource in the study of human anatomy and exercise science.

Resource for students learning functional and structural anatomy; also a reference for medical and exercise science professionals requiring an in-depth knowledge of human anatomy, including athletic trainers, physical therapists, biomechanists, sports medicine specialists, plastic surgeons, and personal trainers.
Primal Pictures was established in 1991 with the goal of creating the only complete and medically accurate three-dimensional model of the human anatomy. They derive their computer graphic models from MRI scan data that have been interpreted by a team of Primal anatomists and then translated into 3-D images by an expert team of graphics specialists. The anatomy visuals are accompanied by 3-D animations that demonstrate function, biomechanics, and surgical procedures.
Attention to detail, accuracy, and clarity are at the cornerstone of Primal Pictures’ amazing products. These dynamic resources provide vivid images of specific areas of the body and are ideal for use by instructors, students, and professionals in the fields of athletic training, sports medicine, physical therapy, massage therapy, biomechanics, exercise physiology, fitness, strength and conditioning, and physical activity.
