Interactive Hip, 2009 Release features detailed and labeled views of the hip and acetabulum. This updated software presents seven biomechanical animations that showcase the range of motion, gait, and stresses of the hip (including acetabular stress, cement stress, cortex stress, and prosthesis stress). Impingement animations and videos of surface anatomy are also featured. Each nerve in the hip and acetabulum may be viewed as part of an entire structure but may also be isolated to allow a closer and more in-depth look at individual nerves. Peel away layers of anatomy from bone to skin to reveal these aspects:
Sacral and coccygeal plexuses
An MRI section showcases MR slices from within the joint in the axial, sagittal, and coronal planes accompanied by the corresponding portion the 3-D model in up to 27 slices. The 3-D model is fully interactive, allowing 360-degree rotation, the ability to add and remove layers of anatomy, and the option to label any item. Clicking on specific structures reveals related text and links to additional dissections, clinical slides, diagrams, and annotated illustrations. The software also provides an export and print option for presentations and handouts.

Reference for medical and exercise science professionals (athletic trainers, physical therapists, biomechanists, sports medicine specialists, and personal trainers) who need an in-depth knowledge of human anatomy. Also a resource for students learning functional anatomy.
Primal Pictures was established in 1991 with the goal of creating the only complete and medically accurate 3-D 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 three-dimensional images by an expert team of graphics specialists. The anatomy visuals are accompanied by three-dimensional 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.
