Abstract

The anatomy study is required in Life Science related courses. Nowadays, there are no instruments to replace the real human bodies. Therefore, it was noticed the need of the development of a learning tool to assist the anatomic study in laboratory which was able to dissect the organs for human anatomy study. Thus, the ultrahigh interactive simulator for human dissection (Visible Human Table – VHT) was created as a computational tool for human anatomy study in classrooms. The main characteristic of the simulator is the fact that it is not an anatomic atlas, but a dissection table based on real body models. That is what makes it stand out from most same-purpose anatomic simulators and atlases. This article presents the results of a VHT evaluation assessed by higher education learners in the health sector. The simulator promising potential becomes evident through the answers obtained from the questionnaire, showing the significant contribution in the anatomy teaching-learning process.
