Derived from “the most detailed anatomical database available,” Gold Standard Multimedia’s three-dimensional model is accessible for interactive viewing with the Viewpoint Media Player. Though it’s only for Windows now, the anatomical models will be supported on the Mac in the near future, promises Viewpoint Corp. You can see a prototype model online.
Viewpoint Corp., a specialist in digital marketing technologies and services for the Web, has licensed its technology to GSM for online display of its “Virtual Human” database of anatomical models. Look for the Viewpoint-enabled Virtual Human Gallery to be fully deployed this fall. Scientifically accurate models displayed in the Gallery Web site will be available for licensing through GSM. In addition, GSM — publisher and developer of medical education and drug reference software and online services — will be reselling the Viewpoint Experience Technology as a value added solution for their clients.
“The market for detailed, accurate anatomy content is developing rapidly in diverse segments of the medical industry,” Dr. Jon Seymour, chairman and CEO, Gold Standard Multimedia, said in a statement. “The ability to interact with human anatomy in a virtual environment is extremely valuable in medical education settings worldwide. Viewpoint helps us to achieve this functionality directly over the Web.”
Scientifically accurate human anatomy models are useful for viewing anatomical structures and relationships in three-dimensions, such as the hip and the surrounding structures involved in a total hip replacement surgery, he added. Primary uses for these models include medical education, biomedical engineering research, surgical training and medical device simulation.
