iPad Medical Educational Application

The Challenge

Softage must create an application for use in medical education. This application is intended to be a way to study and test oneself on many of the muscles and bones in the body. It contains 120 muscles and over 30 bones. It does not contain all the muscles or bones in the body, however, so it should not be used as a substitute for a class, but as an adjunct.

Solution Overview

The app contains images of human body with musclelabels. Each label is clickable and shows the corresponding muscle image on screen and name, origin, insertion and action of the muscle. A list of all muscles is also available in a separate table.

The application has a quiz mode – each quiz has a 1 minute timer, and ten muscle labels on the right side of the screen. The user then has to place the labels in the correct positions. Simple, yet effective.
