The BioDigital Human Comes to Life Across Universal Platforms

Interactive 3D Virtual Human Body Now Available in the Android Market

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 4, 2014) - BioDigital, developer of the virtual human body platform, the BioDigital Human, announced today that it is expanding its product offerings to serve the hundreds of millions of Android mobile devices available in the marketplace. Home to more than 1.5 million users across mobile, tablet and web, the BioDigital Human is the world's first 3D human visualization platform. Likened to Google Earth for the human body, this interactive product uses innovative 3D technology to explain medical conditions and concepts.

The Android release further expands BioDigital's product offerings for the pharmaceutical, medical device, publishing, provider and academic marketplace. The BioDigital Human has proven to be a great tool for explaining complex medical topics. At Novant Health clinicians use it to show diabetes patients how the disease functions within the body and the potential outcome if not managed properly.

"The BioDigital Human reaches patients, where and how they want it," said Thomas Bauer, Director of Health Literacy and Patient Engagement at Novant Health. "It's designed to inform patients in a very positive way and empower them to avoid issues long term."

The Android launch expands the reach of the BioDigital Human Platform to now be accessible to more than 90 percent of the devices worldwide and furthers BioDigital's mission of making health and medicine understandable to everyone. "We have seen incredible advances in health and technology over the last decade, but the method of communicating in healthcare has not changed," said Frank Sculli, Cofounder and CEO of BioDigital. "Studies show that nine out of ten people do not fully understand the health information they receive and the volume and complexity of health information continues to increase. New methods of communication are needed."
