The BioDigital Human is a virtual 3D body that brings to life thousands of medically accurate anatomy objects and health conditions in an interactive Web-based console. It can be compared with Google Earth meets the human body.

This interactive, medically accurate virtual body enables users to learn about anatomy, health conditions, and treatments in visual format that resembles life itself.
BioDigital is fulfilling their mission of making health and wellness understandable to everyone through the first ever cloud based virtual body platform, the BioDigital Human
Its a biomedical visualization company – in New York City, and over the years, they have helped make biomedical information more accessible for a diverse list of clients, including hospitals, biotech and medical device companies, pharmaceuticals, non-profit organizations, academic institutions and students.
The company recently helped build the first 3D, open access surgical simulator, Smile Train, to teach cleft lip and palate surgeries to doctors in developing countries. The simulator allows surgeons to view procedures in 3D, from angles they would not normally see in the operating room and observe each step of the process, from incision marks to stitching, based on the work of expert surgeons. Traditionally surgeons in developing countries would prepare for operative training with outdated textbooks, videos or animations, none of which are ideal. 
BioDigital Human and Smile Train are both web-based and open source, meaning anyone in the world can log in for free. With increasing smartphone use in developing countries and renewed efforts from companies such as Facebook and Google to bring more of the world online, the potential for these tools is huge. Fueled by the new technology, Smile Train expects to conduct its one-millionth surgery this month.
