The Video Atlas was originally intended to be used by individual medical and dental students. Because of its realism, simple language, and three-dimensional quality, the Video Atlas has become popular with students and teachers in many other fields and also with people not on a professional learning path who are looking for information about human anatomy.

Offers video recordings of human anatomic specimens in their natural colours. The videos show moving structures - muscles, tendons, and joints - making the same movements that they make in life. The clips build complex structures step-by-step to provide a foundation for clear understanding of anatomical structure and function.
